No Probable Cause Found in Complaint Against Clinical Social Worker Intern

Posted on Firm News, Professional Licensure Investigations by author

In a case involving a Social Worker represented by the health care licensure defense attorneys at Nicholson & Eastin, LLP, the Probable Cause Panel for the Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy & Mental Health Counseling determined that no probable cause of a violation existed and directed that the case be closed.

The genesis of the complaint was an alleged inappropriate sexual relationship between the Clinical Social Worker and the parent of a client.  The Firm fully investigated the allegations contained in the Complaint Summary including that the Clinical Social Worker engaged in inappropriate behavior with the parent of a client and that the Clinical Social Worker acted inappropriately with respect to the counsel and care provided to the client.  In response to the Complaint Summary, the attorneys at Nicholson & Eastin, LLP, defended the Clinical Social Worker against the allegations and identified multiple witnesses refuting the baseless allegations.  Based upon this evidence, the allegations against the Clinical Social Worker were found to lack substantiation and the file was closed with no action against the Clinical Social Worker.
