Licensure of Georgia Pharmacies and Pharmacists

Helping Pharmacists Fight for Their Careers

Becoming a pharmacist involves a lot of time, money, education and effort. Pharmacists are regulated by the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency, the Georgia State Board of Pharmacy and federally by the DEA. Defense of your license to practice pharmacy is of critical importance. The rules and regulations governing the practice of pharmacy, as well as the laws passed by the General Assembly, present a myriad of problems to a retail pharmacist, hospital pharmacist or a pharmacist dealing in long term care. If you have been accused of any violations of law or rules and regulations governing professional conduct, you need to speak with an attorney who is familiar with these issues. We can help level the odds when you are confronted with the vast resources of the state.

Unlike pharmacists, pharmacies receive various types of licenses. In any event, the laws regulating the inventory, handling and dispensing of controlled substances, as well as dangerous drugs, can be daunting and confusing. At the first sign of problems an administrative law attorney adept in the licensing of pharmacies should be contacted.

Dedicated Representation in All Types of Cases

The pitfalls associated with the practice of pharmacy are numerous. Pharmacists are regulated by the Georgia Board of Pharmacy. Investigations are often carried out by the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency, sometimes in tandem with federal agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Pharmacists may face accusations ranging from accountability audits, misfills, inappropriate dispensing to diversion of drugs. Some allegations are also criminal in nature.

With so much at stake, it is crucial to have an experienced advocate in your corner. Attorney Melvin M. Goldstein has more than 35 years of legal experience, including past prosecutorial work for the Georgia Board of Pharmacy and the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency.

This can have a serious impact on your reputation and career opportunities. The legal team at the law office of Melvin M. Goldstein, will work tirelessly to help protect your license and your reputation. Do not attempt to defend yourself from damaging accusations alone.
