Whether formal proceedings have been initiated against you, or you know an investigation has commenced into your activities by a professional licensure board or agency, our attorneys have a proven record of success in protecting our clients’ livelihoods when their career is threatened. We routinely represent individuals who have been accused to violating professional standards of practice or are otherwise at risk of losing their license.
The attorneys in our professional license protection practice work closely with those in our white-collar defense & investigation, governmental investigations, and agency practices to ensure our clients receive the most thorough and effective representation possible. These claims can be brought based on alleged embezzlement, fraud, driving under the influence, intoxication in the workplace, malpractice, insurance fraud, dependency on controlled substances, etc.
Experience and success in a wide range of businesses
With decades of experience defending the reputations and livelihoods of professionals, our firm has been able to successfully represent clients facing suspension or revocation of their license in numerous fields, including:
- Doctors (Alabama Board of Medical Examiners)
- Nurses (Alabama Board of Nursing)
- Attorneys (Alabama State Bar)
- Pharmacists (Alabama Board of Pharmacy)
- Counselors (Alabama Board of Examiners in Counseling)
- Psychologists (Alabama Board of Examiners in Psychology)
- Real Estate Professionals (Alabama Real Estate Commission)
While we are often able to resolve issues surrounding licensing at informal and preliminary stages of an investigation, we know that sometimes formal proceedings occur and are ready to advocate on behalf of our clients. If the matter is not something that can be resolved at these early stages, we will aggressively defend your license in the appropriate forum so that your career and your rights are protected.
