Professionals of all stripes operate under licenses granted by the state of Texas under the auspices of numerous boards dedicated to enforcing the rules of their forming agencies. This sub-branch of administrative law holds an outsized level of importance in the lives of many Texans, from doctors to electricians, who dedicate years of their lives to getting the education and training they need in order to pass muster to earn the licenses to practice their various professions. And then these professionals become subject to the oversight, enforcement actions, and disciplinary force of these same licensing boards.
Because the professions regulated by these boards are considered so important to consumers—and because these professions, if practiced wrongly, can at times result in great harm—many of these agencies and their boards have been created by the legislature with the explicit aim of siding with the public in any disciplinary undertaking. This can create what we refer to as a “prosecutorial bias” in even informal hearings. And professionals going into such scenarios without the aid of legal counsel are almost certain to find themselves at a decided disadvantage—and thus subject to the very real possibility of losing their licenses, an event which brings along a loss of livelihood and standard of living for themselves and their families.
This is why the attorneys here at BERTOLINO LLP have dedicated our own professional lives to the defense of professional licenses for our fellow Texans. When we are brought into the complaint and disciplinary processes soon enough, we are able to mount effective defenses to preserve the licenses and livelihoods of good people like you.
Through allegations of malpractice or malfeasance, and where a professional is having issues with obtaining or renewing their license, an experienced professional license defense attorney can help to protect a professional’s rights, help navigate the sometimes complicated processes inherent to complaint processes, and build a strong defense to aid a professional in keeping their license when it is under siege. It’s always best to contact a professional license defense attorney the moment one becomes aware of a complaint against their professional license.
