A LEGAL TEAM
Chad Elder formerly worked as an attorney for the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure. During his five years as a lawyer for the Kentucky Medical Board, Mr. Elder acquired invaluable institutional knowledge of the Board, as well as substantial experience and skill in handling Board application and licensing issues, Board investigations, disciplinary hearings and administrative appeals to courts of law. His skills and experience acquired as a Medical Board attorney have enabled Mr. Elder to provide the highest quality defense to his doctor, nurse, dentist and other professional clients.
Brian Good has devoted years to providing the highest caliber license defense to his physician, nurse, dentist and other professional clients before their respective state boards and in courts of law. He has had license restrictions and suspensions overturned or favorably modified after board hearings. In addition, Mr. Good has successfully argued for injunctions against enforcement of board orders in courts of law, including orders of suspension and revocation. He also has substantial experience and skill in handling Board licensing and application issues, Board investigations, disciplinary hearings and administrative appeals to courts of law.
At one point in their legal careers, Mr. Elder and Mr. Good litigated Board disciplinary cases against each other. They negotiated settlements, as well as litigated hearings before the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure with Mr. Elder representing the Board and Mr. Good representing the physician. They also litigated against each other in courts of law relating to administrative appeals.
Several years ago, they joined forces to represent physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, lawyers, physical therapists, social workers and other licensed professionals before their state boards and in courts of law in Kentucky and Ohio. Together, they offer clients the experience, skill and perspective of both sides of a board action. Accordingly, Elder & Good, PLLC is uniquely positioned to offer outstanding legal representation for every issue that can impact a medical or professional license or career.
FORMER STATE FELONY PROSECUTORS
Before litigating against each other and before combining their experiences from both sides of a Board case, Chad Elder and Brian Good were prosecutors who handled serious felony cases. As former felony prosecutors, they are well equipped to provide effective criminal defense to medical and licensed professionals who face Board investigation, a formal Board complaint or criminal prosecution. Their experience in handling Board cases provides them with unique and invaluable knowledge of the impact a criminal conviction can have on a professional license and your ability to practice your profession.
