Accountant License Defense Attorney

Accountants are highly regulated professionals, and a license from the California Board of Accountancy is necessary for all individuals wishing to practice Accountancy in the State of California.

Significant amounts of education, training, and skill are invested in becoming licensed as an Accountant, and the threat of an investigation, a disciplinary action by way of an Accusation filed by the Board of Accountancy, or the denial of a license after spending the time and energy in school and training by the Board, is a significant threat to an Accountant’s career and well-being.

Scott J. Harris, Esq. is an experienced attorney with the knowledge and background necessary to defend against the California Board of Accountancy.   In his prior capacity as a Deputy Attorney General, he was the Liaison Attorney between the California Department of Justice and the Board of Accountancy, and he advised and prosecuted on significant numbers of matters.
