Medical Disqualification Appeals

There are times when law enforcement agencies, such as the New York City Police Department (NYPD), New York City Correction Department (NYCD), Nassau County Police Department (NCPD), and other law enforcement agencies can impact your life when they disqualify your candidacy for a law enforcement position.

A medical disqualification is an taken against law enforcement civil service candidates by law enforcement agencies due to issues that arise during the medical evaluation process, such as orthopedic issues, vision issues, hearing issues, pulmonary issues and cardiac issues.

Mr. Robert B. Kronenberg specializes in medical disqualification appeals and provides the highest quality legal services to candidates who have received a medical disqualification from law enforcement and other civil service positions. In the case of a medical disqualification, you will be asked to obtain a second opinion from an independent doctor; this may be an orthopedist, neurologist, cardiologist, or any other licensed practicing doctor, depending upon the specific reason for disqualifuication.

If you do not prevail in an administrative appeal to the disqualifying agency, the New York City Civil Service Commission and/or the Nassau County Civil Service Commission, you can commence an Article 78 action in the appropriate New York State Supreme Court. Pursuant to Article 78, you may appeal a decision made by a municipality or government agency that you believe to be arbitrary and capricious. Typically, an Article 78 proceeding is an action commenced in a New York State Supreme Court to request the court's intervention to overturn the municipality's or governmental agency's decision, or to ask the court to order the municipality or governmental agency to perform a function that by law, they are mandated to perform. The Law Offices of Robert B. Kronenberg can help you determine if you have basis to commence an Article 78 proceeding. Mr. Kronenberg provides the highest level of disqualification legal services to ensure that your medical disqualification appeal is pursued as effectively and efficiently as possible.
