North Carolina Engineering License Defense Lawyer
North State Law helps Engineers of various disciplines in North Carolina who are facing licensing issues.
Going to school for and becoming a professional engineer in the state of North Carolina is no small task. It takes dedication, hard work, and sometimes very late nights.
Along the way, if you face licensing issues, it can be very concerning. When you’re facing the possibility of not being able to participate in the profession you worked so hard to obtain, you may get emotional.
As a licensed professional himself, North State Law founder Nick Dowgul fully understands the anguish and helplessness someone placed in this position may feel.
Additionally, Dowgul is the son of a professional engineer in Florida who has amassed over 40 years of experience in the field.
That is why Dowgul has dedicated his career to advocating for professionals facing issues with their licensing from state boards. This advocacy includes North Carolina Engineers in various disciplines and the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors (NCBELS).
If you’re facing licensing issues from the NCBELS, Dowgul can put his experience in your corner to protect all you have worked for in your career.
How can a North Carolina Engineer License Defense Lawyer help me if I am facing licensing issues?
No matter the type of legal matter, lawyers are hired to protect their clients’ best interests. Hiring a lawyer when you’re facing licensing issues is no different.
This type of law requires a keen understanding of administrative procedures. Even though engineers are highly educated individuals, the administrative licensing procedure is not taught while obtaining their degree.
Obtaining a lawyer to help you with your North Carolina Engineer licensing issues allows you access to someone who works daily with administrative law. A lawyer who has experience in this field will know what it takes to position an individual for the best result possible in their unique situation.
Additionally, they will be able to prepare you through the whole process. The power of the unknown is a mighty thing in a negative sense. It can cause individuals to slip up, make mistakes and sometimes wreck the defense of their license because they’re simply caught off guard.
With a lawyer by your side, you’ll be prepared for each step of the way. You will have the confidence of knowing that the person representing you has years of experience and your best interests at heart.
When should I hire an attorney to help me with my North Carolina Engineering Licensing issues?
If you have the resources, you should hire an attorney as soon as possible when facing licensing issues.
Licensing issues can affect your livelihood. Without your license, chances are very slim you will be able to make the same level of income.
The point is that these matters are significant. When something is this significant, it’s not best to wait around. Every hour and day that passes could be the time that your lawyer is building a defense to save your license.
Waiting too long may put your legal counsel in a bind. Would you operate better if you had months to prepare or a couple of days to prepare?
Getting a lawyer may be essential depending on the facts of your case, but obtaining a lawyer where they have time to build your defense is vital.

The first thing you should do is contact a lawyer who has experience handling administrative law matters.
If you’re in a situation where you’ve just received the news of a complaint or investigation into something you have done, you’re going to be worried. Emotions will be running high. You may get online searching for everything you can. You might even enter a frantic state. This is not good.
What you need is peace of mind. It would help if you spoke with someone who is calm and has faced administrative law before, who can give you an idea of what the future holds and actions you need to take to protect yourself.
Don’t make quick decisions in a frantic state. Reach out to someone with experience who is willing to help you.
