What is a professional license appeals lawyer

In California, there are over 30 professional licensing boards. Every occupation from cosmetology to medical licensing requires approval from these boards. Unfortunately, issues can arise in your personal life, such as criminal convictions, and cause friction with your board. As a result, you could be facing an application denial. This is where a professional license appeals lawyer can help kickstart your career.

What do appeals lawyers do?

Professional license appeal lawyers are experts in administrative law and focus in helping those with occupational licenses. As a professional license defense lawyer, these attorneys can help you determine exactly what caused your license denial as well as appeal the denial. From the moment you receive a statement of issues from your licensing board, your license defense attorney can help gather the information needed to dispute the denial, help expunge any past convictions that are causing issues, and face the licensing board for you.
