Professional Licensure Defense

We understand the suspension or revocation of a professional license jeopardizes an individual and their family’s well-being. A suspension is disruptive and could irrevocably damage your practice. A revocation can be catastrophic to your livelihood. We have significant experience defending many different licensed professionals including dentists, doctors, securities broker-dealers, investment advisors, lawyers, accountants, engineers, pharmacists, nurses, teachers, and others before their licensing board, agency, or commission. In addition to licensed professionals, we also have experience representing a variety of law enforcement professionals, from state and federal corrections officers, to federal agents and officials with top secret, and higher, security clearances.

Each professional license is governed by its respective board, agency, or commission’s unique body of regulations, rules, and standards. This requires specific knowledge and experience in order to investigate, communicate, and defend effectively the license of an individual or business. Professional licensure matters can also be connected or affected by other parallel criminal or regulatory investigations. Navigating these types of sensitive matters requires a firm with unique experience to achieve favorable results. We are that firm. We know what works and what does not work in defending professional licensure matters and parallel criminal and regulatory enforcement matters. Our most important successes are ones that are never publicized.
