We work directly with you and the licensing agency to address your license application. We help to compile information necessary to prove license eligibility, and proactively address issues that may be a roadblock to licensure.
If your license application has already been denied, we will vigorously defend your right to get licensed, and fight any STATEMENT OF ISSUES filed by a licensing agency to formally deny your application.
Denials may be based upon prior discipline, criminal convictions, or other acts substantially related to the profession for which you seek a license. As your professional license and career are so crucial to you and your family, why risk not hiring an attorney to vigorously defend your right to engage in the profession of your choosing? You should consult an attorney as soon as you receive notice denying your license application, as strict time limits to file an appeal may exist.
Competent, compassionate and dedicated legal representation may be more cost-effective than you may think. Contact S J Harris Law and attorney Scott J. Harris to discuss your application for licensure or how best to defend against the denial of a license.
