FAQs

HOW CAN PARAMEDIC LICENSE DISCIPLINE HAPPEN TO ME?

Hundreds of paramedics are investigated and disciplined each year by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA) because of complaints about alleged offenses or violations of Division 2.5 of the California Health and Safety Code. CalEMSA posts a paramedic investigation request form on its website so any patient, family member, partner, nurse, doctor, employer, local agency official, or other person can easily file a complaint about you triggering an investigation.

Once a CalEMSA complaint is filed against you then a state investigator is assigned to investigate the complaint and write a report. Using this report, the enforcement staff and attorneys at CalEMSA look for violations and, if they think they see any, they initiate disciplinary action against your paramedic license, leaving you to defend yourself.

WHAT TYPES OF VIOLATIONS TRIGGER AN INVESTIGATION?

Since 2005, the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA) has investigated and disciplined thousands of paramedics for myriad complaints or allegations, such as:

  • not following local treatment protocols
  • failure to adequately assess patients
  • breaching patient confidentiality
  • unprofessional conduct
  • failure to complete or document continuing education
  • criminal convictions, misdemeanor or felony
  • two or more negligent acts
  • one or more acts of gross negligence
  • working on a lapsed license
  • “irrational behavior”
  • physical or mental disability
  • violating Division 2.5 of the Health & Safety Code
  • violating Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations
  • incompetence
  • alcohol or substance abuse
  • drug diversion
  • fraud in the procurement of a license or renewal
  • dishonesty
  • “subversion” of a license examination

WHAT CAN POSSIBLY HAPPEN TO MY PARAMEDIC LICENSE?

Under regulations adopted by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA), your paramedic license can be revoked, suspended, and placed on probation for up to 5 years. You can also be fined to $2,500 per violation of California Health and Safety Code section 1798.200, subdivision (c).

CalEMSA can also require you to complete approved educational programs and coursework, attend stress or anger management programs, attend ethics training, undergo a psychiatric or medical evaluation, be placed on a performance improvement plan, and pass practical skills or oral examinations to the satisfaction of a 3-member review board consisting of an EMS physician, a paramedic, and an EMS educator.

While on probation you would be required to appear at the CalEMSA office on demand for in-person for interviews, meetings, and evaluations, file quarterly compliance reports, notify your employer(s) and submit proof you have done so, notify CalEMSA any time you change jobs for any reason and explain in writing why you do so in full detail, and report any criminal citations or arrests (even with no conviction) within 72 hours.

Depending upon your case, you could also be required to totally abstain from the use of alcoholic beverages or other intoxicating substances while on and off duty, be subject to random drug testing within 12 hours on demand, and attend drug addiction, detoxification, or sobriety support program, even for a first-offense DUI or “wet reckless” conviction while off duty.

While on a performance improvement plan, you would be required to attend remedial training by a preceptor in a field or clinical setting, review written policies, and be subject to quality assurance and improvement (QA/QI) audits.

All of this is at your own expense and is a matter of public record, published indefinitely, and searchable to anyone with an Internet connection.

HOW MUCH DOES IT USUALLY COST TO HIRE A PARAMEDIC DEFENSE ATTORNEY?

Administrative law attorneys in California with expertise in defending paramedics typically charge for legal services by time or a fixed fee. Depending upon locale, experience, and the nature of your case, skilled licensing board attorneys typically charge legal fees between $250 and $500 per hour, or between $5,000 and $25,000 per case, or more. This does not include other costs of your legal defense like expert witness fees, couriers and messengers, subpoenas and witness fees, process service, court reporter fees, and court filing fees.

Few paramedics are financially ready when the time comes for such enormous expenses to adequately defend themselves. And few attorneys doing this work truly know the rigors and challenges of providing emergency medical care as a paramedic.

As a member of California Paramedics Association, you receive prompt access to attorneys with expertise specifically in defending California paramedics with covered legal services included or discounted, depending upon which plan you choose, for an affordable monthly or annual membership fee.

IS CALIFORNIA PARAMEDICS ASSOCIATION LEGAL INSURANCE?

No, benefits for members of California Paramedics Association LLC is not legal or malpractice insurance and will not reimburse you for all or a portion of your fees, costs, and expenses incurred when using another attorney. Rather, covered services are provided by our authorized attorneys as part of our group prepaid legal services to subscribers.

DOES MY LABOR UNION ALREADY COVER THIS?

Labor organizations and unions have a legal duty to negotiate labor agreement with your employer and provide a mechanism to enforce the negotiated agreement (such as a grievance procedure). But these employee organizations have no legal duty to defend their members in administrative license cases or outside legal matters, even if those matters could hurt your career.

Few labor unions undertake these responsibilities, and if they do they frequently provide only non-attorney representatives with little to no experience in these cases. Communications between union members and non-attorney representatives are not confidential and legally privileged like communications between client and attorney. You need a highly experienced and skilled paramedic defense lawyer on your side.

DOES MALPRACTICE OR LEGAL INSURANCE ALREADY COVER THIS?

There are a number of consumer prepaid legal services available for general and limited legal matters, like obtaining form legal documents, drafting wills, sending demand letters, and reviewing real estate leases. Attorneys who sign up to provide services for these plans rarely have sufficient skill or experience to capably and expertly defend California paramedics. Many employer-sponsored plans of this type exclude employment-related matters from coverage.

Some malpractice insurance plans include reimbursement for licensing board defense with a deductible or to certain maximums—which may not be adequate—and often only if you use their designated attorney—who may have never before defended a paramedic.

DOES MY EMPLOYER ALREADY COVER THIS?

Rarely, if ever, will a public or private employer willingly pay a paramedic’s personal legal expenses relating to an investigation or discipline of her or his paramedic license or local accreditation, and employers have no general legal duty to do so.

California Labor Code section 2802 requires a private-sector employer to reimburse its employees for reasonable and necessary “expenditures or incurred losses” that are “incurred in direct consequence of the employee’s discharge of his or her duties, or obedience to the directions of the employer.” California Labor Code section 2802 does not expressly apply to public entities.

Paramedic license investigations and discipline typically arise when it is alleged the paramedic has failed to discharge her or his duties and failed to obey the directions of her or his employer, such as failure to follow local treatment protocols or engaging in professional misconduct. Routinely, paramedic license investigations and discipline also occur in the context of concurrent employment discipline or discharge for the same facts and circumstances.

No California case has ever held that employers must pay the legal fees and expenses of an employee holding a professional license who is under investigation by their professional licensing agency, board, or accrediting body.

California Government Code section 825 requires public entities to defend public employees “against any claim or action against him or her for an injury arising out of an act or omission occurring within the scope of his or her employment as an employee of the public entity” provided the employee makes a written request at least 10 days before the day of trial, and the employee or former employee reasonably cooperates in good faith in the defense of the claim or action.

However, administrative investigations and discipline by licensing agencies and boards are not claims or actions against the paramedic for injuries.

When paramedic license investigations and discipline arise, time is of the essence—there is usually only a very short time to respond (e.g. California paramedics have only 15 days to hire an attorney and respond to an Accusation issued by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority with a Notice of Defense).

Relying on the hope your employer may willingly agree to pay your attorney fees, where no court has ever held such a legal duty exists in the context of a professional license action, could lead to a separate, protracted legal dispute with your employer (or former employer) over reimbursement even as you are paying up-front out-of-pocket for legal representation during the paramedic license investigation and disciplinary appeals processes.

If you have doubts, ask your employer’s legal or human resources departments whether they would agree to pay for your legal defense if your paramedic license is ever investigated or disciplined by CalEMSA.

DOES JOINING THE ASSOCIATION MAKE FINANCIAL SENSE?

Absolutely! Joining California Paramedics Association makes great financial sense for at least five big reasons.

Firstly, at current pricing it would be more than 20 to 30 years before your subscription payments equal what you would typically pay an attorney to represent you in just one CalEMSA investigation or other covered legal matter.

Second, as soon as you join you are immediately eligible for discounts on non-covered legal services of between 10% and 20% depending upon which plan you choose.

Third, even if you think you may receive some union help or insurance reimbursement, membership is so affordable you can have important protection to fill the gaps, have more options, and get multiple legal opinions.

Fourth, you decide whether to sign up on a monthly or yearly basis, and you may cancel at any time at the conclusion of your chosen term with no further obligation.  Plus, you get 10% off our already economical monthly subscription when choosing to join for a full year.

Fifth, consider the economic value of your paramedic license, your earnings capability with it, and how much you stand to lose without it. A paramedic pay differential can be worth $4,000 to $12,000 per year, or more. If being a paramedic is a condition of your employment, your license could be worth $50,000 to $150,000 per year—that’s upwards of $3 million over a 20-year career!

WHAT IS THE NATIONAL PRACTITIONER DATA BANK?

The National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB) is a database operated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that contains medical malpractice payment and adverse action reports on health care professionals, including California paramedics. Hospitals and state licensing boards submit information on health care practitioners, including clinical privileges restrictions, actions against paramedic licenses, and medical malpractice payments that is kept in the NPDB database. Authorized users considering a healthcare provider’s application for employment, licensure, or practice privileges are permitted by statute to query this information in the NPDB.

Certain entries in the NPDB can result in exclusion of healthcare providers from federal or state healthcare reimbursement programs. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services publishes a NPDB Guidebook explaining the laws, regulations, and policies governing entries and exclusions.

The California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA) reports the filing of disciplinary accusation and decisions to the NPDB.  Entries submitted to the NPDB in error can be challenged for accuracy.

WHAT IS AN ACCUSATION?

An Accusation is an accusatory pleading issued by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA) against your paramedic license.  The Accusation sets forth the factual and legal allegations that CalEMSA enforcement staff and attorneys believe justify revocation or suspension of your license, placing you on probation for up to five years, and other disciplinary penalties.

You must respond to the Accusation with a Notice of Defense within 15 days to challenge the allegations and demand an administrative hearing or you will lose your case by default for failure to respond.

Accusations are public documents posted on the CalEMSA website soon after they issue.

WHAT IS A TEMPORARY SUSPENSION ORDER?

A Temporary Suspension Order (TSO) can be issued by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA) to temporarily suspend, for up to 18 calendar days without a hearing, a paramedic license when there are legal grounds to revoke the license or when permitting the paramedic to continue activity authorized by the paramedic license “would present an imminent threat to the public health or safety.”

If CalEMSA decides to continue the TSO beyond 18 calendar days, then CalEMSA must serve the TSO in writing together with an Accusation. A hearing on the TSO and the Accusation must be held within 30 day after the paramedic services his or her Notice of Defense.

WHAT IS A NOTICE OF DEFENSE?

A Notice of Defense is a responsive legal document that a paramedic must serve upon the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA) within 15 days after service of an Accusation or Temporary Suspension Order to challenge the factual and legal allegations against him or her, and to demand an administrative hearing to challenge the evidence.

WHAT IS THE CALIFORNIA EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES AUTHORITY?

The California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA, EMSA, or the “EMS Authority”) is an executive branch agency in state government, first created in 1980, that is one of thirteen departments within the California Health and Human Services Agency.

The California Legislature has delegated authority to CalEMSA responsibility for statewide paramedic licensure and operation of the EMS Central Registry, a public access database that provides information about licensing and certification status of EMTs and paramedics.

Paramedic programs were first established in California as a county option in 1971 by the Wedworth-Townsend Pilot Paramedic Act. Los Angeles County was the first county in California to train and provide paramedics. From 1971 until the early 1990s, paramedics were “certified” by counties but not licensed statewide. This led to the hybrid system existing today of statewide licensure plus local system “accreditation.”

WHAT ARE LOCAL EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES AGENCIES?

There are 33 local emergency medical services (EMS) agencies in California across 58 counties. Local EMS agencies, or “LEMSAs,” certify, investigate and discipline emergency medical technicians (EMTs), provide “accreditation” to and investigate paramedics, and establish local Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS) treatment protocols to be followed by EMTs and paramedics.

When paramedics fail to follow LEMSA treatment protocols in any respect, however slight, the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA) has authority to discipline the paramedic using penalties ranging from administrative fines of up to $2,500 per violation to license revocation. California Paramedics Association members receive legal help in these circumstances.

Seven of these local EMS agencies are regional agencies regulating EMS systems across multiple counties, while 26 are single-county LEMSAs.

Subject to constitutional due process requirements, LEMSAs have legal authority to temporarily suspend a paramedic’s local accreditation to practice, and to refer paramedic license complaints to the CalEMSA. California Paramedics Association members get help from a skilled EMS attorney when their local accreditations are threatened.

The origins of a hybrid system of statewide paramedic licensure plus local system “accreditation” are the history of the Wedworth-Townsend Pilot Paramedic Act, that provided for county “certification” of paramedics from 1971 until the early 1990s when responsibility for statewide paramedic licensure was delegated to CalEMSA. Another reason for this hybrid system is the desire for statewide paramedic licensure while retaining some local system control over ALS treatment protocols and EMS delivery.

DOES THE PLAN COVER QUALITY IMPROVEMENT OR OTHER INVESTIGATIONS BY MY LEMSA OR EMPLOYER?

Yes! The Advisor, Advocate, and Advocate+Plus membership plans all include remote attorney advice via telephone, email, or videoconference for for administrative investigations of your local paramedic accreditation by any one of California’s 33 LEMSAs and your California emergency medical services employer or healthcare employer for which your paramedic license is a condition of your employment.

Additional legal services are available to you at a discount of 10%, 15%, or 20%, depending upon whether you select the Advisor, Advocate, or Advocate+Plus membership plan, respectively.

Remote legal advice and counsel is limited to a reasonable amount of time under the circumstances in the professional judgment of the Association’s attorney (max. 1 hr./mo., max. total 3 hrs./rolling 12 mos.).

Read our membership subscription agreement for complete details.

WHAT IS THE NATIONAL REGISTRY OF EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIANS?

The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) is a non-profit organization established in 1970 providing nationwide accreditation of paramedics using a uniform process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent EMS practice.

The NREMT publishes a disciplinary actions policy under which it may bring discipline against paramedics its certifies for, among other reasons, certain misdemeanor or felony convictions, license discipline or limitations taken by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA), or the voluntary surrender of a paramedic license in connection with or in lieu of disciplinary action.

The NREMT may also summarily suspend a paramedic’s certification before an appeal hearing if the paramedic’s license is revoked or suspended under a Temporary Suspension Order, or the paramedic’s local accreditation is temporarily suspended, “based on the agency’s finding that the individual poses an imminent threat to the public and/or cannot practice safely and effectively.”

Under the NREMT appeals policy, Paramedics suffering an adverse decision by the NREMT may appeal within 45 days of transmittal to the NREMT Executive Director, followed by a further appeal to a NREMT appeal panel. Paramedics may be represented by legal counsel during the NREMT appeals process. Association members receive legal help during NREMT appeals process as a benefit of membership.

WHAT RIGHTS DO I HAVE TO CHALLENGE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST MY PARAMEDIC LICENSE?

Under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments’ Due Process Clauses, the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (and local emergency medical services agencies) must give you constitutionally sufficient due process—notice and an opportunity to respond to the charges—when revoking, suspending, or disciplining your paramedic license (or local accreditation).

California has adopted regulations setting forth certain administrative hearing procedures under which you have the right to:

  1. An administrative trial on the charges and allegations in the Accusation and petition for Temporary Suspension Order;
  2. Confront and cross-examine the witnesses against you at the administrative trial;
  3. Present evidence and to testify on your own behalf at the administrative trial;
  4. Issue subpoenas to compel the attendance of witnesses and the production of documents at the administrative trial; and
  5. All other rights accorded by the California Administrative Procedure Act and other applicable laws.

You have a right to have the administrative hearing audio recorded or transcribed by a court reporter, and a right to receive a copy (at your expense) of the administrative record (documents, transcripts, and exhibits) of the administrative proceeding if you wish to further challenge the decision in superior court under a legal procedure known as an administrative writ of of mandate.

You will need a skilled and experienced attorney at your side or representing you through these processes to achieve the best result. As an association member you will receive legal help either or covered or discounted attorney representation through these critical proceedings.

Read our membership subscription agreement for complete details.

IS MEMBERSHIP AVAILABLE TO EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIANS WHO ARE NOT PARAMEDICS?

Membership in the California Paramedics Association is currently available only to licensed paramedics because the statewide licensing and regulatory structure for paramedics differs from emergency medical technicians in ways that are significant to our plan’s coverage.

IS THERE A REFERRAL DISCOUNT PROGRAM FOR LABOR AND PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS?

Yes! If you are a labor union, association of employees, or professional organization, contact us about our referral discount program for members of your organization. We can establish a code that your members can to use to receive additional discounts on subscriptions to the California Paramedics Association LLC, providing a valuable additional benefit of membership for your organization.

IF I ALREADY HAVE A CASE PENDING CAN I STILL JOIN THE ASSOCIATION?

Absolutely! You can still join the California Paramedics Association even if an Accusation has already issued against your California paramedic license, you are currently under investigation by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA), you are the subject of a complaint, you were cited, arrested, or convicted in criminal court, or an unusual event has occurred that causes you to suspect one of these things may happen in the near future. Although coverage does not extend matters that are already threatened, active, pending, or arising from events occurring before initiation of your membership, you may still be eligible for a discount on non-covered legal services of  up to 10%, 15%, or 20%  when choosing the yearly Advisor, Advocate, or Advocate+Plus membership, respectively, so long as you maintain and renew your Advocate+Plus membership throughout the pendency of the preexisting matter.

A note from the founder

Dear California Paramedic,

I started my fire service and emergency medical services career in Los Angeles and Ventura counties in 1985, completing paramedic training at its birthplace in California—Daniel Freeman paramedic school—in 1988. I worked in the fire service for over 15 years as a firefighter and paramedic in both Southern California and Northern California until embarking on a legal career in 2001.

Unlike most lawyers, I know how tough it is to do your job in EMS, and it’s only getting tougher. I also know what it’s like to have your actions and patient care decisions in the field second-guessed from behind a desk. Since founding my employment law practice in 2004, I’ve successfully defended hundreds of public safety and healthcare professionals in really tough cases throughout our state.

Hiring a good lawyer is expensive and can cost thousands of dollars. Hundreds of paramedics suddenly face license investigations and complaints each year. Nearly all the paramedics I’ve represented over the years believed being in serious legal jeopardy would never happen to them. And their unions rarely offered paramedic license defense, or offered only non-attorney help. By joining here you’ll save thousands of dollars in legal fees when trouble strikes and get great quality lawyer advocacy.

I founded the California Paramedics Association to help protect paramedics like you against unexpected legal trouble threatening your paramedic license and livelihood, and to avoid massive unplanned expenses of defending yourself. Monthly or yearly membership gives you access to experienced EMS attorneys to promptly respond to your legal emergency when you need it most, and without busting your budget.

Membership in the California Paramedics Association is personal to you, regardless of other professional associations or labor organizations you may to belong to. Membership is voluntary. Monthly or yearly membership terms means you continue as long as you remain satisfied. I am excited to offer you the security and protection of membership. I invite and encourage you to join today.

Working with Joe Rose was nothing short of amazing. Joe was very personable and professional with the utmost integrity.Communication was instantaneous both verbally and through the online client website. I was terrified that I was about to lose my paramedic license and Joe walked me through every step of the process. I remember sitting in the courtroom watching him work and being so relieved that I had selected Joe to represent me as I cannot imagine going through this process with anyone else. Joe was extremely knowledgeable and answered every question I had about things that I could not understand. Joe was appropriately aggressive and I felt that he fought hard to help me keep my license. I remember thinking after the hearing and before the ruling that even if I did not get the outcome I was looking for, there is nobody in the world that I would want by my side through such a stressful process. In the end, I received the outcome I was looking for and got to keep my license. I am glad I hired Joe to represent me as soon as foresaw possible trouble and not any later. I will recommend Joe to any and all of my friends or family who may need his help in the future.

Jose Rose is the gold standard to have the back of Public Safety personnel. I consulted with and hired Joe. From the moment I first talked with him he was very knowledgable in dealing with public safety agencies and how they operate. He is very trustworthy and highly intelligent. He was by my side every step of the way and always confident and aggressive in his representation. Being a former Firefighter/Paramedic he is truly in touch with his clients and understands rigors of the job, decision making, and politics involved with government agencies.

I spoke with several other attorneys before settling on Joe and my first impression was that not only was he knowledgeable about labor law but he also understood the nuances of public agency. As important as his knowledge of the law was, I was impressed that he listened, he understood, and he gave me feedback that helped me understand what I could expect throughout the process. I appreciated Joe's collaborative approach and sound judgement as he worked through several scenarios to bring the situation to a successful close. I hope to never need another attorney for an issue like this but if I do, I would not hesitate to hire Joe again. It was a pleasure to work with Joe and I highly recommend him!

I called with questions regarding my specific case.Joe answered the phone and was very patient in taking the time to hear me and what i had to say. Unfortunately, due to the specifics or my case, There's no real solution to offer here.I am however impressed with Joe's ability to recognize that each call is important.I felt that, and should i have any further employment issues that i feel i need help with, I will call Joe First.Thanks again.

Jose Rose is the gold standard to have the back of Public Safety personnel. I consulted with and hired Joe. From the moment I first talked with him he was very knowledgable in dealing with public safety agencies and how they operate. He is very trustworthy and highly intelligent. He was by my side every step of the way and always confident and aggressive in his representation. Being a former Firefighter/Paramedic he is truly in touch with his clients and understands rigors of the job, decision making, and politics involved with government agencies. I would not be where I am with out him. He is the only Lawyer I have full trust in and know my best interest is his top priority. Thank You Joe!!!

Working with Joe Rose was nothing short of amazing. Joe was very personable and professional with the utmost integrity.Communication was instantaneous both verbally and through the online client website. I was terrified that I was about to lose my paramedic license and Joe walked me through every step of the process. I remember sitting in the courtroom watching him work and being so relieved that I had selected Joe to represent me as I cannot imagine going through this process with anyone else. Joe was extremely knowledgeable and answered every question I had about things that I could not understand. Joe was appropriately aggressive and I felt that he fought hard to help me keep my license. I remember thinking after the hearing and before the ruling that even if I did not get the outcome I was looking for, there is nobody in the world that I would want by my side through such a stressful process. In the end, I received the outcome I was looking for and got to keep my license. I am glad I hired Joe to represent me as soon as foresaw possible trouble and not any later. I will recommend Joe to any and all of my friends or family who may need his help in the future.

I hired Joe Rose to represent me in a wrongful termination case. Joe is organized, prepared and flawlessly presented my case with his vast knowledge and respect of labor laws. He was extremely efficient, impeccable with written briefs and presentation skills. He's honest, trustworthy, respectful and professional. Joe is sensible with his approach to handling witnesses but fearless with his cross-examination skills. He fearlessly held witnesses accountable to bring out the facts we needed the arbitrator to hear to overturn my termination. I have complete confidence in Joe Rose and without hesitation would call on him if I ever have any employment issues arise. If you are looking for a super lawyer, look no further. Joe is the best you can find.

Joe was an exceptional attorney during the tedious and aggravating case that the other side was creating for us. He was always on top of keeping everyone in the loop of what was going on, quickly replied to any questions we had, and kept things on a level that was easier to understand for those who don't follow all the law/court lingo. Definitely would hire again if needed

As a board member for our retiree association I approved the retainer of Rose Law. Joe directed the incorporation of our association and facilitated us obtainging our not-for-profit status. Although we did not go to trial our lawsuit resulted in multiple meetings with plaintiffs counsel and mediation. We eventually received a settlement that our board and members at large felt was relatively fair and definitely the best we were going to get. Without Joe's representation we would have received nothing. Joe always kept us abreast with developments in the case and gave us easy to understand advice on our chances, risks and odds of us prevailing. At no time did I ever feel he placed his firms interest above ours and am grateful for his honesty and integrity. Everyone at his firm was always courteous, prompt and professional. I highly recommend Rose Law.

Joe was always very honest and upbeat throughout the entire process regardless if we were up or down.

Updated review: Mr. Rose reached out to me directly regarding an experience I had yesterday and was very cordial, concerned and informative. He listened to my story and referred me to where I could find an attorney that was more able to tackle my specific case. He was knowledgeable about specific characteristics that pertain to a case like mine and was very helpful despite not being able to pick up my case at this time. It really speaks volumes when a person or business can address a concern with tact and grace and rectify it. Thank you Mr. Rose.

It is my privilege to recommend Joseph Rose, an excellent lawyer who represents my employee association. As a member of the employee association, I had the pleasure of working with Joseph. Unfortunately, due to economic constraints, my employer was forced to restructure the organization, leading to the elimination of my position and recommendation to be laid-off. As such, Joseph was tasked with successfully advocating for an unprecedented severance package, on my behalf, usually reserved for upper management and executives.Joseph has an exceptionally strong eye for detail that has been a benefit to the employee association on more than one occasion. Joseph also has a very calm, compassionate and approachable demeanor that was a blessing for my family and I during a very difficult year. Furthermore, Joseph Rose law firm is very organized with a user friendly web based account tailored to manage my file with all the corresponding documents and communications during the layoff and severance package negotiations period. Joseph is extremely attentive and makes himself available for any communications in a very prompt manner.Joseph is an extremely talented attorney who cares a great deal about his clients, the employee association and I am extremely grateful for the severance package he negotiated for me.

As important as his knowledge of the law was, I was impressed that he listened, he understood, and he gave me feedback that helped me understand what I could expect throughout the process. I appreciated Joe's collaborative approach and sound judgement as he worked through several scenarios to bring the situation to a successful close. I hope to never need another attorney for an issue like this but if I do, I would not hesitate to hire Joe again. It was a pleasure to work with Joe and I highly recommend him!

It was regarding an employment matter and he took the time to review my company’s MOU and guided me through the process. He was patient and answered all my questions. Hopefully we won’t have to get to the point where I would have to retain Joe but I am VERY confident in him if it would get to that point. THANK YOU!

I hired Joe Rose because I realized, after working with a company for a year, that they were not paying me or anyone I worked with overtime. They were taking advantage of the fact that most of their employees were a little younger, and that we didn't really know the labor laws of California. I attempted to get this situation resolved by myself with Labor Comissions, but they pretty much laughed in my face because I didn't have "sufficient evidence". This is when I decided to hire an attorney with another coworker, and I am extremely grateful I had made that decision. We were up against one of the largest real estate investing companies in all of Sacramento, so I knew it wasn't going to be easy. Luckily, Joe took us in, consulted our situation, recommended we get as many other employees as we could involved, then went to work to get what was rightfully ours. Joe was very attentive, and kept us updated almost daily as to the standing and progression of our case. Joe was extremely confident that we had a good case, and continued to work away through every objection that was thrown at us. The people we were up against, being very affluent in the Sacramento area, had hired and fired a couple different lawyers, who kept coming up with different defenses that were completely absurd. Finally, because they knew we were going to win the case because of how strong it was, the defense decided to settle, and me along with all of my coworkers at the time were compensated for the amount of work that we had put in, and more for the fraud and lies that we had to prove before we got there. I would highly recommend Joe Rose if anyone is looking for a lawyer who will be attentive, considerate, and completely honest throughout your case. He was clearly in it for the passion of his work, not just to get money out of people. Again, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thanks Joe for all of your help!!

Not only was I put in contact with the attorney right away but he had researched and found the answer to my problem within a couple of days. I don't expect all attorneys work on the weekend but this one got me my answer on a Sunday. I took the findings to work and it resolved the problem without any further incident. I've dealt with attorneys before his fees were very reasonable I hope to never need an attorney again for work but if I do I will give Rose law a call

I have to preface by saying I don't have that most experience with attorney interaction but from my limited dealings with attorneys I've concluded... Joe is the diamond in the rough! I met with Joe on a legal matter he was very candid about my situation which i very much appreciated, asked a lot of questions and is just generally a very personable guy. I haven't decided my next steps yet but if you're looking for an attorney who will actually listen to you and walk you through all your questions he's got my vote!

Mr. Rose was very professional and resolved my case as quickly as possible. He represented me to the board and we had a good outcome. There was no revocation, suspension, restriction, or years of probation on my RN license! God forbid I run across any more problems in the future but, if I do I would definitely hire Rose Law again. I would recommend Rose Law to anyone who needed a lawyer to fight the BRN.

The California Emergency Medical Services Authority maintains a searchable personnel registry of Advanced EMTs, EMTs, and paramedics licensed in California. Paramedic discipline is a matter of public record, searchable by prospective employers and anyone with an Internet connection. These searchable records remains published online indefinitely.

California's 33 Local Emergency Medical Services Agencies

Certification, investigation and discipline of emergency medical technicians (EMTs), accreditation and investigation of paramedics, and establishment of local basic life support (BLS) and advanced life support (ALS) treatment protocols across California’s 58 counties are the responsibility of 33 local emergency medical services (EMS) agencies. Seven of these local EMS agencies are regional agencies regulating several counties, while 26 are single-county agencies.

Local EMS agency officials have legal authority to temporarily and permanently discipline, suspend, or revoke an EMT’s certification, subject to constitutional due process and administrative appeal requirements. Local EMS agencies also have authority to temporarily suspend a paramedic’s local accreditation to practice, and to refer paramedic license complaints to the California Emergency Medical Services Authority (CalEMSA).
