You worked hard to obtain your education, credentials, and license to do your job. When allegations of misconduct are lodged against you, your license, reputation, and career are at stake. We understand this is a difficult, even traumatic ordeal. We strive to assert your rights, protect your ability to work, and reduce your stress as much as possible when your professional license is under attack.
The Right to Defend Your License
You always have the right to defend your license. You always have the right to an attorney.
No matter which Texas licensing board, agency, or commission you are under investigation by, you have the right to an attorney. Hiring an attorney to help you mount a strong defense serves to protect your license, reputation, fiscal interests, and your career; it does not make you look guilty.
During any investigation, there are many opportunities to defend your license. Most investigations begin by requesting information from the license holder. At this stage, an attorney knowledgeable in license defense can help you prepare a strong Response Packet. When handled well, it is not uncommon for allegations to be dismissed at this early stage. We invite you to read a few of our success stories here.
If a settlement conference, show compliance proceeding, or other legal hearing becomes necessary, you have the right to be represented by an attorney at any of these proceedings. Your attorney will know how to navigate the complaint process, gather evidence, question witnesses, and prepare powerful defenses against allegations of misconduct.
However, we caution you on relying solely on your attorney to speak for you. At any proceeding, it is important that you speak on your own behalf. The licensing board may be swayed by hearing your side of the story directly from you. When you work with us, we will ensure that you thoroughly understand the facts of the complaint and are well-prepared to convey your story, answer questions, and refute any challenges made by the board.
