MOODK’s Robert Fein, Esq. and James Skelly, Esq. of the Westchester County office successfully acquitted a NYC-based Licensed Certified Social Worker before the New York State Education Department’s Office of Professional Discipline against charges of Professional Misconduct. It was alleged therein that the Social Worker’s treatment inflicted emotional harm upon a prior client. Mr. Fein and Mr. Skelly persuasively argued that the allegations did not rise to the level of Professional Misconduct. The Office of Professional Discipline concluded their investigation at its earliest stages without taking adverse action against the Social Worker’s license.
