A Smart Approach To Professional License Defense

Careers in medicine, law, teaching and other areas require professional licenses. A professional license may come under review or be suspended if the holder faces criminal charges or violates a professional code.

At Rob McGuire Law in Nashville, I represent professionals who face a disciplinary board or otherwise are threatened with the loss of their professional license. I represent doctors, nurses, dentists, psychologists, teachers, lawyers, accountants and other licensed professionals throughout Middle Tennessee.

In addition to licensing hearings occurring in conjunction with a criminal charge, one may occur as a result of a violation of a code of ethics, mental health issues, accusations of neglect, departing from minimal standards of professional care, false advertising, fraudulent billing and more.

I also represent Tennessee restaurants, bars and other hospitality establishments that face possible suspension or revocation of their liquor license by the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) of revocation of their beer permit by the Davidson County Beer Board as a result of a violation.

Why It Makes Sense To Coordinate Defense Efforts

If you face suspension or removal of a professional license in connection with a criminal charge, it is beneficial to have me represent you in both criminal court and before a licensing board. Steps taken in one facet of a case may have important consequences in the other facet. By handling both aspects of your case, I can coordinate the strategies and make sure missteps are avoided.

The same resources that I use to develop strong criminal defense cases often prove useful in professional license defense hearings. I can:

  • Interview parties involved in an incident
  • Help write a response statement
  • Serve as an intermediary between you and a professional licensing board
  • Advocate on your behalf in front of a licensing board
  • Hire experts who can testify on your behalf and support your defense
  • Review the terms of any agreement that results during negotiations with a licensing board

Prompt Action Is Important

It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible once you learn that your license to practice your profession may be at risk. Call or use my online contact form to schedule a free consultation.
