If you hold a vocational license then you have specialized training in a skill or trade. You’ve made a career out of your trade, and you have the credentials to prove it. Your clients depend on you to get important jobs done. Depending on your field, the quality of your work can have serious implications for your livelihood. A dissatisfied client or customer can jeopardize your license and reputation with a single complaint.
When a complaint is filed with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiner’s, the Texas Commission on Fire Protection, or any Texas vocational licensing board, the merits of the complaint are investigated. Even if you believe the complaint is baseless, it is critical that you take the complaint seriously from the start. Texas licensing agencies take an aggressive approach to investigation and discipline. If your license is in jeopardy, you need an experienced trade and vocational license defense attorney to protect your interests.
