Few things are as devastating as losing one’s career. That is what happens, however, when one’s professional license is suspended or if a professional board refuses to issue a license after having already met the qualification requirements. Such a suspension or denial means that years of education, experience, and hard work can be gone. Even worse, the licensee can be left wondering how they will support themselves in the future. It is crucial that you retain counsel should you find yourself in this situation. Our Phoenix license defense lawyer assists those facing suspension or disciplinary proceedings. We understand that you are facing a serious situation and our attorney will take it seriously. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation.
Bretton Barber assists several types of Arizona professionals who are facing discipline from their regulatory agency. Types of cases handled by our office include:
- Psychologist license suspensions
- Nursing disciplinary hearings before the Arizona State Board of Nursing
- Licensing issues faced by therapists & social workers the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners
- Disciplinary hearings faced by pharmacists
- The loss or denial of a real estate license by the Arizona Department of Real Estate
- Suspension hearings faced by doctors
- The suspension of a contracting license
- Other professional license issues
Such cases will be heard by first the regulatory board for the profession and, if appealed, the Arizona Office of Administrative Hearings. First the issue will be addressed, and hopefully settled, in a way that is agreeable to one facing a license suspension or denial by the board. Having an attorney during this period of time is essential. If an agreement cannot be reached, one can file an appeal and an Administrative Law Judge will preside over the case and the process will resemble that of a civil bench trial. You will be given the chance to present evidence, examine witnesses, and challenge the claims being brought against you. Bretton is experienced in handling such matters and works to provide you with the highest level of representation.
Our office was founded on the idea of providing the highest level of representation.
