Experience and perspective from both sides of disciplinary proceedings
Attorney David Rankin began his career as a prosecutor in the State Attorneys Office in Hillsborough County and then spent several years in private practice prosecuting cases referred to him by the DBPR. This experience as a prosecutor, combined with more than 30 years in professional license defense, makes David Rankin eminently qualified to handle your disciplinary proceeding and seek the best possible result at the earliest possible stage.
Litigation is not always required to resolve a disciplinary matter. Through ongoing communication, effective advocacy and creative problem solving, a satisfactory disposition can often be obtained without going through the formal administrative hearing process. Through decades of experience and professional representation, David Rankin has established and maintained good working communication channels with the government agencies, boards and commissions charged with deciding licensing regulatory matters across a range of professions.
Disciplinary proceedings can be simple or complex, and their outcome can impact one’s practice both in and out of state. David Rankin maintains relationships with attorneys in a variety of areas, who frequently refer disciplinary matters to him or ask him to work with them to handle their clients’ administrative or licensure issues. Our practice includes working with criminal defense attorneys to coordinate strategy and defense when a criminal complaint is implicated along with an administrative complaint.
