As a counselor or therapist, you instill comfort and compassion to help your patients/clients develop effective solutions to their problems. Our lawyers at Robert A. Lees & Associates have a similar mission — to give you the peace of mind that comes with expeditious resolution of issues affecting your career, finances, family and personal life. Established in 1983, Robert A. Lees & Associates focuses on the unique needs of mental health professionals. We can assist you with business development, professional licensing and regulatory matters, including:
Mental health professionals must follow strict regulations and policies in the formation, marketing, development and employment practices associated with their businesses. The Colorado courts and regulatory agencies do not consider lack of knowledge about the law an excuse for not following the rules. Our team gives you the support you need to build a successful business that is compliant with government regulations and consistent with your professional goals.
Our team advises you on ways to become and remain in compliance with complex government regulations and licensing requirements. However, even if you do everything right, a complaint can still be filed against you. We seek dismissal of unmerited claims and pursue the minimum penalties when the board determines that a violation has occurred. By taking decisive action, we put you in the best position possible.
Governor Bill Owens appointed attorney Robert A. Lees to the Board of Licensed Professional Counselors in Colorado. Immediately prior to the completion of Bob's tenure in December 2006, the former governor wrote him an official letter expressing his appreciation for the services Bob provided to the board, saying in part:
“Your talents and skills have made a valuable contribution to this important board. Please be assured that your record of excellence will endure as a tribute to the time you have invested in serving the State of Colorado.”
While serving on the board, Bob reviewed and analyzed hundreds of grievances that made a variety of different assertions. Bob applies his insight into the process to guide you through a difficult experience.
