HEALTH PROFESSIONS APPEAL AND REVIEW BOARD (HPARB) LAWYERS
Representing Healthcare Professionals in front of Appeal and Review Boards.
Regulated health professionals have the right to appeal decisions of the Complaints Committee and Accreditation Committee to the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board (“the HPARB”). In addition, complainants can appeal Complaints Committee decisions to the HPARB.
The HPARB reviews decisions of the Accreditation and Complaints Committees of health professions Colleges. The HPARB considers whether the College’s Committee reviewed all of the information and documentation relevant to their decision making. The HPARB also considers whether the decision of the College committee was a reasonable decision.
The lawyers at Damien Frost & Associates LLP represent Health Professionals appealing Complaints Committee and Accreditation Committee decisions to the HPARB, as well as fighting to uphold favourable decisions at the HPARB.

I was accused by my former employer of interfering and damaging their computer systems. I was charged under the Criminal Code for mischief, unauthorized access and destruction of data, which was a very scary, stressful, and upsetting experience. I thought that my world was over and all the hard work I had done in my life was coming to an end. Mr. Frost's initial consultation (which was no obligation and free of charge) helped a lot to calm my nerves and comfort me and my family in trying times. His team was very understanding, sympathetic, concerned and supporting, she always took my frantic phone calls with calmness and assurance and helped me understand the progress of my case clearly. At every step, I received sound professional advice. At the end of the case, the charges were dropped. As a result, I do not have a criminal record, my reputation is intact, and my current job is still secure. Words cannot truly express my gratitude for having such amazing lawyers. From explaining the terminology used in court, to sitting with me outside the court room when I couldn't hold back my tears, they stood by my side. Thank you for exceeding my expectations, and then some.J.S.
