Professional License Defense Attorney
Serving the Jackson, Mississippi Metro Area
Experienced Defense for Licensed Medical Professionals
When a health care professional faces disciplinary action, it can be devastating if not career-ending. If your license and your livelihood are in jeopardy over allegations of wrongdoing, you need an experienced healthcare attorney who knows how to navigate the statutes and regulations and work through the Board process to save your license.
My law firm, Douglas G. Mercier, PA, has a long and successful record of representing licensed medical professionals across the four corners of Mississippi, from the Jackson Metro area to the Delta, to Corinth, Tupelo, Hattiesburg and the Gulf Coast. I have successfully defended clients and their licenses before the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure, the Mississippi Board of Nursing, the Mississippi State Board of Dental Examiners, the Mississippi Board of Pharmacy, the Mississippi State Board of Examiners for Licensed Professional Counselors, the Mississippi State Board of Physical Therapy and other administrative bodies governing the license of healthcare professionals.

Statewide Experience in Health Care Law
I have extensive experience representing health care professionals, including:
Physicians and physician assistants
Nurse practitioners and nurses, both RN and LPN
Dentists and dental hygienists
Psychologists and mental health counselors
Throughout my years of practice, I have handled all types of allegations against healthcare professionals that carry license implications, from professional misconduct to substance use disorder, to documentation errors, HIPAA violations and illegal activities: diversion of drugs, DEA violations, prescription forgery, practicing while impaired, and assault of a vulnerable adult patient. Whatever you are accused of, I will treat you with respect and do my best to save your license. If the disciplinary allegations implicate criminal conduct I also practice criminal defense and have experience with the DEA, OIG, U.S. Attorney’s Office, the MS Attorney General’s Office and the MBN.
