Protection For All Licensed Professionals
Professional licenses are a source of pride and privilege, but they also come with greater responsibilities than jobs in fields that do not require certification and licensure. In addition to the risk of malpractice, administrative law issues can result in license revocation or suspension.
Winship & Friedrichs APC proudly represents a wide range of licensed professionals, including nurses, real estate agents, court reporters, doctors, dentists, chiropractors, pharmacists and others who are facing potential discipline that could threaten their licenses. The firm has decades of experience working with California’s licensing agencies to help our clients remain able to practice their skills or regain their licenses as quickly as possible.
Professional License Defense After Criminal Charges And More
Disciplinary issues can arise in several ways. Malpractice allegations will put your license in jeopardy, as will actions outside of your work such as criminal activity. Being accused of DUI, theft, causing a car accident that killed someone and other crimes could all threaten your professional license.
Our first step is to attempt to settle the matter before your administrative hearing. Our lawyers can help you and the other party reach a settlement, or “stipulation,” that is mutually satisfactory and saves you the trouble of facing a formal hearing. When that is not an option, we will tailor a legal strategy to defend your license before an administrative board. Our goal is always to seek reduced punishment for our clients – for instance, negotiating a suspension down to a fine or seeking a shorter suspension.
Protect Your License And Your Professional Reputation
Mistakes in your life outside of work do not have to endanger your ability to make a living.
