If you have received notice of a complaint or the Board that oversees your professional license has filed a formal complaint after an investigation, it is crucial that you contact an experienced professional license defense attorney as soon as possible.

What does a professional licensing defense lawyer do?

Professional Licensing Defense Lawyers, also known as Occupational License Defense Lawyers or simply Licensing Lawyers or Attorneys, help licensed professionals protect their license when facing the suspension or revocation of their license due to complaints, investigations, or disciplinary actions rendered by a state licensing board.

Why should I hire an attorney to help me with professional licensing issues?

When professionals receive notice of a complaint or feel like their license may be in jeopardy, they often think they can resolve the issue independently. Naturally, professionally licensed individuals are very highly educated, so navigating this problem may seem like another challenge in their career that they have to tackle head-on. 

Hiring an experienced licensing attorney gives you access to someone with a track record dealing with State Licensing Boards. The attorney will be able to clear any confusion you may have about the steps to take in the rigid process of protecting your license. Additionally, an experienced professional license attorney can prepare you for any hearings that may take place.
