Allegations of misconduct against a licensed professional are serious. You spent years earning your professional license and you've worked hard to build your reputation. When your professional license is in jeopardy due to allegations of misconduct, your career is at stake.
Regulatory and licensing boards have the power to revoke a license, suspend it, or put a licensee on probation. Any complaint against a licensed professional must be treated with the highest level of importance and should be handled with the utmost competence.
Don't Jeopardize Your Career by Going it Alone
If you have been notified of a complaint against you, you may feel equipped to handle the matter on your own. But beware - there are countless dangers in do-it-yourself license defense.
First, properly responding to and defending against allegations is time consuming and emotional. Second, the initial responses you make regarding allegations against you are critical. In many cases, well-crafted first responses have the power to get the allegations dismissed from the start. Third, you need someone who thoroughly understands the law and knows how to navigate the complaint process, gather evidence, question witnesses, and prepare powerful legal defenses against allegations of misconduct.
Hiring an attorney to help you mount a strong defense serves to protect your license, reputation, financial interests, and your career.
The Licensing Board Has Staff Attorneys, You Need An Attorney Too
The licensing boards in Texas have staff attorneys on their side. They know what they are doing, and they know the law. You need a competent, well-established attorney who is just as good, or even better.
A license defense attorney can guide you through the complaint process. Our firm believes that immediately consulting an experienced license defense attorney to review allegations of misconduct helps ensure the most favorable outcome in your case. Your attorney will be by your side to protect and assert your rights and to put forth a strong defense in your case.
