Professional License Defense
Los Angeles & Orange County Professional License Defense
Professional Licensees in the State of California can be brought up on disciplinary charges over minor matters which are inconceivable to the professional licensee. As a professional licensee you are subject to the whims of the State Licensing Board’s investigator and may be forced to participate in an administrative hearing prior to and or after disciplinary charges have been made in a formal accusation.
Some professional licensee’s may feel that they are being discriminated against by the person making the complaint or the State Board conducting the investigation, honestly believing that they have done nothing wrong and that the allegations are personal rather than professional. While this may be true you still must proceed through the administrative process to prove that you have not acted in a negligent manner.
Professional License Defense Overview:
Proceeding through the administrative hearing process can be challenging for the professional licensee due to the stigma placed upon the licensee until the final determination is made. In pursuing disciplinary charges against a professional licensee, the State Board’s may post the accusation on their website. The State Board’s also employ a take it or leave it tactic when conducting settlement negotiations with the professional licensee. A typical offer of settlement made by the State Board will require the professional licensee to accept all of the charges which are set forth in the accusation or force you to proceed to litigate the matter at an administrative hearing.
Even if you have proof that some of the charges are erroneous the State Board’s will typically not consider that evidence and will require you to accept discipline for all charges as set forth in the accusation before they will agree to probationary terms. No one should be required to accept discipline for outlandish and untrue charges and if you are unwilling to do so you should contact the Law Office of Sam Walker immediately. We will fight for you and help you to prove that the charges against you are untrue.
Professional licensees are most often charged with negligence, repeated acts of negligence, gross negligence or the violation of some other statute or regulation. The fear of proceeding to dispute the charges against you and losing your case at trial is enough to force most professional licensee’s to accept whatever charges are made and whatever discipline is demanded by the State Board. If you feel that you are being unjustly accused and/or investigated by a State Board or that you are not guilty of the charges you should contact the Law Office of Sam Walker for a free fifteen-minute telephone consultation. We will listen to your side of the story and advise you if it is feasible to proceed to a formal administrative trial/hearing.
