OPTICIAN DEFENCE LAWYERS

Optician Defence Lawyers  – Addressing Regulatory Concern from The College of Opticians

The College of Opticians of Ontario has a mandate to protect the public. In doing so, they investigate and prosecute opticians for acts of professional misconduct. If you are the subject of an investigation, report or complaint to the College of Opticians, you should contact a lawyer immediately.

Damien Frost & Associates LLP represents opticians who are facing complaints or allegations of professional misconduct by the College of Opticians.

If a complaint has been made, you will receive a notice of complaint and you will be asked to provide a response in writing. Your response along with a copy of the complaint will then be provided to the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (“the ICRC”) of the College to determine whether your matter should be referred to the Discipline Committee for a hearing. Given the importance of your response, you should have a lawyer assist you by responding on your behalf to the ICRC. This will ensure that your rights are protected and that anything submitted to the College cannot be used against you in the future.

Very Pleased Working with Rebecca

"I have been very pleased working with Rebecca. She worked very efficiently, professionally and cared for every step, as we went through the process with Ontario College of Pharmacists. Initially I thought I would be going through a nightmare ,when I received my paperwork from Ontario College of Pharmacists, but Rebecca made the process seamless and the outcome was positive. Thank-you Rebecca and I would highly recommend your excellent professional service to others."

Very Professional and Helpful

I hired Ms Rebecca Young regarding a legal matter in October 2015. I found her and the firm to be very professional and helpful. The whole process took about one year to resolve. I followed her advice and the outcome was in my favour. I would recommend her for her professionalism, knowledge and pleasant attitude.
