Professional License Lawyer in Orange County

Defending Professionals Throughout Orange County, California

Your professional license can be investigated for a number of reasons, including criminal arrests, accusations of misconduct, or an allegation that you have failed to live up to your profession’s standards.

There are approximately 56 regulator and oversight boards under the umbrella of the Department of Consumer Affairs for The State of California, including the Board of Registered Nursing, the California Board of Medical Examiners, and the Dental Board of California. Each board has its own standards for quality care, and as a professional licensed defense lawyer, I have the knowledge and experience to defend you against nearly any accusation.

Has a Complaint Been Filed Against You?

An accusation or a formal administrative complaint can be filed against your professional license by any regulatory board in California. Typically these arise from criminal cases or based on an alleged moment when you did not live up to a high standard of professional care.

Under California administrative law, you do have a right to contest the accusation and request a hearing before the Office of Administrative Hearings for the state of California. Be aware that there are very specific time requirements that must be met with respect to your notice of the defense and your request for a right to a hearing.

I will personally assist you in any matter, investigation, inquiry, diversion, or intervention program offer and/or in response to or in defense against any formal accusation against your license.

Why a Professional Needs a Lawyer For License Defense

Professionals often require a lawyer for professional license defense for several reasons:

  • Complex Regulations: Professional licensing boards typically have complex regulations and procedures. Navigating these rules can be challenging for individuals unfamiliar with the legal intricacies involved. A lawyer specializing in license defense can guide how to comply with these regulations.
  • Legal Expertise: Lawyers deeply understand the legal system and can effectively represent professionals in license defense cases. They can analyze the specific circumstances surrounding the case, identify possible legal issues, and develop a strong defense strategy.
  • Investigation Assistance: If an investigation is initiated against a professional, a lawyer can assist in gathering evidence and information to support the defense. This includes obtaining witness statements, relevant documents, and other materials crucial in building a robust defense.
  • Communication Skills: Lawyers are trained to communicate effectively with licensing boards, administrative agencies, and other legal entities. They can present the professional's case persuasively and advocate during hearings or negotiations.
  • Risk Mitigation: Professionals risk severe consequences, including license suspension or revocation, fines, and damage to their reputation, if they face disciplinary action. A lawyer can help minimize these risks by crafting a strategic defense and negotiating with licensing boards to achieve the best possible outcome.
  • Appeals Process: If a professional receives an adverse decision from a licensing board, a lawyer can guide them through the appeals process. This involves preparing and filing appeals, presenting legal arguments, and advocating for a fair resolution.
  • Understanding of Administrative Law: License defense often involves administrative law, which is different from other areas of law. Lawyers specializing in this field are familiar with the specific procedures, deadlines, and legal standards applicable to administrative hearings.
  • Confidentiality and Privacy: Lawyers can help maintain the confidentiality and privacy of their clients during the license defense process. This is important to protect the professional's reputation and avoid unnecessary harm to their career.
