In recent years, government regulation of professionals and industries has become more pervasive and complex. If you or your business hold a professional license, or wish to apply for such a license, you must be familiar with both the agency or department that issues the license and the procedures for obtaining the license and keeping it active. If the licensing agency or department seeks to revoke or suspend your license, you must also be familiar with the procedures of contesting that action before the agency or department or an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). The failure to aggressively respond to a governmental agency’s or department’s threat to suspend or revoke a professional license can have serious repercussions to your business and your career.
At the local level, if you or your business are required to interact with city or county boards or commissions, it is important that you have an attorney experienced with those boards or commissions to effectively represent your interests. The importance of having experienced counsel when dealing with a city or county administrative agency cannot be understated.
