     Information provided to or by attorneys is frequently intended to be privileged or confidential. Please be advised that we do not seek out, request or solicit privileged or confidential information until an attorney-client relationship has been established between the potential client and by the Firm, and that not all attorney-client relationships that are offered to the Firm can or will be accepted. Accordingly, while we encourage early consultation on matters which may eventually require legal advice, Mr. Harshey and the Law Office of Sean Harshey cannot be responsible for the unsolicited tendering of confidential information by e-mail or otherwise until necessary checks for conflicts of interest and other arrangements can be made and an appropriate attorney-client relationship established with the Firm.

"You have the right to be represented by an attorney.

Don't try to go it alone."


     As a professional, there is little that can be so devastating as to read your name at the top of a legal document alleging that you've committed some misconduct and should face disciplinary action against your license.  When the government files a Complaint against you as a professional - and you license to practice may be at stake - there is no room for guesswork about the system or what you should do or say to defend yourself.


     Think about these scenarios:


     1. What would you say to a patient who was considering performing surgery on himself?  What if he thought it was only a “simple surgery” or seemed “pretty straightforward”?

     2. What if a patient wanted to take care of his own critical care needs?  What if he told you that it would be okay because he had a friend who went through this before?

     3. What if a customer told you that he would decide on what medications to take with other medications and in what dosages?  What if he told you he could figure it out by just looking it up on the internet?

      Of course, you would try to persuade these patients that they were risking their health by not allowing a trained professional to help them.  Even if they expressed a bad opinion of the medical professions, you would advise them against these reckless actions because you know that no matter how simple a procedure or treatment or medication may seem, there can be complications or dangers that may not be obvious until it’s too late.

     Representing yourself in any legal matter – especially one in which your license to practice could be suspended or revoked - is every bit as reckless as the examples above.  No matter how simple it may seem to you or how smart you may be, it can have disastrous consequences.  Because the law can be very complex.  Because what may seem obvious to a layperson, may have unforeseen consequences that may be difficult or impossible to reverse.  State statutes, Constitutions, Administrative Codes, Federal Law and other authorities, rules and procedures all come together to form the process that guides and directs how your legal matter is prosecuted before the board.  Knowing how the process works is critical to making certain that the best possible outcome is achieved.  And this is how attorney Sean Harshey can help you.

     Attorney Sean Harshey represents professionals before the Boards of the Indiana Professional Licensing Agencies.  With a particular focus on the medical professions, Mr. Harshey will make certain that you are well-represented and have a fair opportunity to respond to the allegations against you.

High-quality legal work and personal client service.
