Laura provides administrative defense of professional licenses which so many careers and professions require, defending doctors, nurses and other health care workers, daycare centers, and other professionals like lawyers, real estate brokers, and contractors in administrative court actions attempting to revoke their professional licenses.
There are many points on which professionals are at risk for losing their licenses, and even if there are no criminal allegations or charges involved, there are still many circumstances in which people can lose them.
It is fairly common for people to represent themselves at administrative revocation hearings (where the state agency is trying to revoke a license), but don’t be lured into that mistake. Laura has often been contacted by licensees who had already lost a license they thought they could defend on their own. At that point, there is little that any lawyer can do apart from filing a motion for reconsideration.
If an Accusation is filed against you, the filer is serious about revoking your license, and the risk is real of it happening, so don’t fall into the trap of representing yourself at administrative hearings.
