You studied and worked hard to qualify for your professional license — and it’s key to maintain this license for your future success. When a mistake or accusation endangers that license, however, it also endangers the future of your career. Because so much is at stake, you may want to reach out to an attorney with experience in professional license defense.
How can working with an attorney benefit help you protect your career?
An attorney can help you navigate your licensing board’s complaint process
More people than you may realize face formal disciplinary action during their career. In fact, many licensing boards are reluctant to release the number of disciplinary actions they investigate in a given year.
Still, this may be the first time you have had to personally navigate the processes put in place by your licensing board. An experienced license defense attorney, however, has navigated these processes before and can help you avoid pitfalls, missed deadlines and other issues that may negatively impact your situation.
Relying on an attorney’s experience can limit the emotional impact of license defense
You might rely on your own experience and knowledge in your daily work but navigating the complaint process may leave you out of your depth. By working with an experienced attorney, you can approach your case with greater confidence and limit the impact of stress on your work and daily life.
An attorney has experience presenting cases to the licensing board
Often, license defense relies on details. An attorney has the experience and skill needed to fully investigate the claim, determine which details are relevant, and present those details that give you the greatest chance for success.
If your conduct is under investigation or your license is in jeopardy, speaking to an attorney as early as possible may help you build a strong defense.
