Having one’s professional license suspended is an upheaval to their life. One may be left feeling like they have no options or perhaps that they should appeal the decision. While appeals are a good option in many situations there are also instances in which it may be better to file a Petition for Rehearing. As opposed to an appeal, which is heard by the Superior Court, a Petition for Rehearing is heard by one’s licensing board. If you have had your license suspended then it is crucial that you contact an attorney immediately. Our Phoenix lawyer handles such matters and is ready to assist you.
Phoenix licensing attorney filing Petitions for Rehearing after suspension by a board
Arizona professionals who have had their license suspended may wish to file for a rehearing. Rehearings differ from the appeal of a license suspension in multiple ways. First, an appeal would be heard by the Superior Court while a rehearing is heard by the licensing board. Second, appeals tend to be based more on legal issues, and arguing that the law was misapplied, while rehearings are more about asking for facts to be considered differently. Hiring counsel who understands how to re-present facts to the licensing board is crucial when bringing a Petition for Rehearing.
