Unlock your career
with Professional License Defense.
As professional license defense lawyers, we specialize in protecting your livelihood.
Unlock Legal is a law firm that provides representation specifically to California professionals who are facing the loss of their license—and therefore their livelihood. If your license is under threat or suspension because you have been charged with a crime, we will represent you in the state courts.
We will also represent you in front of your licensing board if your application has been denied, if your license has been revoked, or if it is at risk of discipline.
