- Using Unlicensed Assistants
- Negligent and Incompetent Treatment of Patients
- Improper Referrals
- Insurance Billing and Medi-Cal Billing Fraud
- Substance Abuse
- Criminal Accusations or Convictions

A Former Prosecutor Protecting Your License
The Physical Therapy Board of California does not exist to protect and help PTs and PTAs. Instead, its job is to regulate physical therapists and investigate allegations of misconduct.
At S J Harris Law, we are here to help you defend your license and protect your future.
We represent physical therapists’ interests during every stage of disciplinary action, including initial investigations, administrative hearings and appeals, and appeals to the superior court through writs of mandamus.
