Teacher Credential License Defense

License defense lawyer Scott J. Harris helps teachers throughout California protect their teaching licenses, their reputations and their livelihoods during disciplinary investigations and proceedings from our Los Angeles area office.
Teacher License Defense Attorney Serving California
The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing oversees teachers in the state of California. Contrary to what many teachers believe, the Commission does not exist to provide support to teachers. Instead, the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing monitors teachers, investigates accusations of misconduct and disciplines teachers.
If an allegation of misconduct is made against a teacher, the commission may either privately or publicly admonish the teacher, suspend or revoke the teacher’s license. Common allegations of misconduct include:
- Criminal Charges, including DUIs
- Substance Abuse
- Boundary Issues, including improper relationships with or punishment of students
- Any Other Unprofessional Conduct
If you’ve been accused of wrongdoing, your reputation as a professional may be irreparably damaged. At S J Harris Law, we do everything in our power to defend our clients against license revocation or suspension and save their reputation during license discipline proceedings.
