Lawyers Against AHPRA

In Australia, the National Law governs the conduct and professional standards expected of many professional disciplines. This includes Doctors, Psychologists, Pharmacists, Nurses and many other fields of expertise.

AHPRA, who primarily act as the enforcement arm of the various National Boards, often bring proceedings against professionals who they believe may have acted inappropriately or in breach of their professional obligations.

Unfortunately, the process of being investigated is a harrowing one. In the words of Gary Fettke, who was pursued by AHPRA simply because he spoke out against the dangers of sugar, “the process is the punishment”. Many professionals have their lives and careers ruined by protracted investigations that do not necessarily have Truth at their core.

Many of these matters eventually end up in the administrative Tribunal, and the Boards are prone to ‘lawyer up’. Proceedings can be complex and strategy is important.

At Maat’s Method, as human rights lawyers we specialise in defending and supporting practitioners who find themselves embroiled in disciplinary investigations. If you find yourself in this vulnerable position, we can help.

Testimonials

“I could not have been more fortunate or more pleased to have Peter Fam take on my case against an ‘establishment bully’. From the outset, Peter’s meticulous “take one careful step at a time” approach, instilled great confidence in me that we had an excellent chance to bring justice to my situation. Peter displayed an amazing ability to explain the nuances of my situation and to sincerely and effectively involve me in the decision along the way. His dedication to humanity, truth and integrity was clear, and undoubtedly had the ‘bully’ on the back foot. Thus, we had a very good outcome. Maat’s Method: Outstanding excellent service!”

“My experience with Peter Fam was nothing short of special. His approach was unique because he was able to provide a comprehensive understanding of my situation and recommend an action plan. Any lawyer can quote and reference the law, but Peter stood out to me because of his ability to speak in my language and reference the things that mattered to me. His communication was clear and his advice came with no pressure. He understood the importance of different stakeholders and how even a positive legal outcome could have the potential to impact some parties negatively. He had a truly objective approach to my situation and had the grounded energy i needed to redirect my attention to where it was needed most. More than anything, Peter restored my hope in humanity because at a time when i had lost hope in people, he was there to show me that there are still good, honest truthful people in the world that value doing whats right more than doing whats profitable. Thank you Peter”

Carolyn Crowe

“Peter at Maat’s Method took on my human rights case against a large government agency and achieved a favorable outcome. Many other lawyers said it couldn’t be done however Peter’s dedication and effort made it happen. Peter is a great listener, honest, responsive and effective. I am exceptionally grateful that he was my lawyer.”

William Cartwright

“Peter helped me in a time of need. He was empathetic, supportive and professional from the first time we connected.

I contacted a number of lawyers who were more worried about payment, didn’t listen to my concerns and were cold and transactional. Peter felt like a friend from the start.

Peter very quickly understood my issue and provided logical advice and direction. He took the weight of the issue off my shoulders and became my voice and advocate – I felt like I could finally breathe in an extremely stressful situation.

Peter helped me achieve justice and I recommend him to everyone who needs legal advice. With Peter you get someone dedicated to your cause, someone who is truly independent and who will fearlessly stand up for justice and truth, no matter how big the opponent may be.

Thank you Peter.”
