Professional License Defense
With years of experience representing state agencies and handling contested case matters, we represent licensed professionals facing complaints and investigations by their licensing agencies and boards. When you are notified of a complaint made against you in your professional capacity, the resulting investigation can be overwhelming, stressful, and all-consuming.
The investigator may, however, be friendly and the investigation seemingly benign. You may be encouraged to openly answer broad questions that seem unrelated to the nature of the complaint and turn over many documents even if seemingly unconnected to the complaint being investigated. Agencies may further discourage you from seeking legal representation during the investigation and any settlement processes after the close of the investigation. But you have a right to representation at all stages of the process. And early representation can be critical in understanding your rights.
At Williams Weyand Law, LLC, we encourage licensees to cooperative with agency investigations without giving up your rights. We guide you through the investigation, assist in negotiations with the agency, and represent you in a contested hearing if that becomes necessary to help protect your license and ability to practice your chosen profession.
