NCCPA PANCE ELIGIBILITY REINSTATED
Our client did not pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE) within the 6-year/6-attempts policy of the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) and was no longer eligible to sit for the examination. After our investigation, we discovered there was good cause to petition the NCCPA for an exception to policy. We contacted the NCCPA, prepared a legal argument, and scheduled a hearing with the Review Committee. After the hearing, our client’s eligibility to take the PANCE was reinstated.
DOG BITE INJURY SETTLED
Our client was bitten by a dog while delivering a package to a residence during the course of employment. The property owner refused to compensate our client. After our investigation, we discovered that another package delivery driver was also bitten by this dog in the past. We then filed a claim with the property owner’s insurance company. Despite a lengthy negotiation, we were able to settle the case for a satisfactory amount.
CHILD CUSTODY MODIFICATION DENIED
A petitioner filed a Request for Order to modify child custody against our client in Solano County. After reviewing the petitioner’s declaration and conducting our own investigation into the matter, we concluded that it was not in the best interests of the child for child custody to be modified. We filed a responsive declaration and prepared our client for the scheduled hearing. At the hearing, the judge denied the petitioner’s Request for Order to modify child custody.
A domestic violence restraining order was filed against our client in San Francisco Unified Family Court. After our investigation, there was reason to believe that the restraining order was filed as leverage for financial gain in the course of a marriage dissolution. We filed a response to the domestic violence restraining order, negotiated a non-CLETS peaceful contact agreement with the petitioner, and the case was dismissed at the hearing.
