What actions should you take to keep your license?
Many architects do not take complaints seriously enough. You need to contact an attorney the minute that your architect license is in jeopardy. Building a good defense takes time, and you don’t have any time to lose. You should hire a lawyer that specializes in professional licensing cases.
There are many attorneys in North Carolina, but not all of them are familiar with professional licensing cases. Each professional licensing board is different, and your lawyer needs to be experienced to handle these exceptional cases.
What are some reasons to face disciplinary actions?
There are many laws in place that regulate any profession, and this is no different from architects. These boards are meant to protect the public from working, living, and going inside of unstable structures. If an architect is incompetent in their work, then they should be liable for their mistakes. You could easily have your license revoked if you have created dangerous structures or pled guilty to criminal charges.
Some violations that can result in you losing your license are:
- Falsifying safety reports
- Improper building code inspections
- Providing misleading statements about your background, capabilities, and previous projects
- Conviction of a crime that relates to architecture
- Conviction of certain types of crimes not related to architecture
- Not being registered
- Trying to obtain a license through fraudulent methods
Not every one of these offenses will result in the loss of your license, but they could. You need to aggressively defend your license from the beginning. Even after a decision by the board, you still have a right to appeal. Hiring experienced legal counsel improves your odds of keeping your license and makes the process much less stressful.
What should I do if I’m facing disciplinary action?
You need to hire an attorney that focuses on professional license defense. If you lose your license, you will have to find another career. You will face much negative fallout after your case. Don’t risk your license by handling your claim on your own. Instead, hire skilled legal counsel to represent you throughout the entire process.
