How to Hire an experienced contractor licensing defense lawyer
Not all lawyers have the same experience levels, and you can’t risk your defense. Most contractors lose their licenses because they have criminal convictions. So, it would help if you had a legal team that is familiar with handling these types of cases. If you lose your license, you will have to find a different line of work. How will you be able to support yourself and your family when you lose your career?
There are also cases where contractors lose their license because they are trying to work without a contract. Even home improvement projects are required to have contracts with contractors that have valid licenses. If you are found to be operating without the proper license, you could be facing criminal charges. Reach out to us today to discuss your case.
I’ve been convicted of a criminal offense. Will I lose my license?
Not always. We can’t determine what will happen in your case until you come in for a consultation. However, we have seen situations go either way. Having a legal team in your corner reduces the chances that you will lose your contractor’s license. Hiring a lawyer to represent you before you’re even convicted is your best option. It would help if you were proactive from the very beginning of your legal troubles, to ensure that your legal team can build the best defense for your case. Don’t lose your license if you can avoid it.
How do you handle these licensing cases?
We recommend contacting our offices as soon as you feel like your contractor license might be at risk. We thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case, to help protect your license. If you are facing criminal charges, we can assist you with your case. However, just getting your criminal case dismissed might not stop an investigation in a licensing case. So, it is better that you cover all of your bases before everything begins. There’s no such thing as being too prepared to fight for your license.
What types of criminal convictions can affect my licensing?
Some misdemeanors and felonies can affect your contractor license. Some of the more common are:
– Financial crimes (related to contracting)
– Sex offenses
– Serious crimes (rape, murder, grand theft)
Other crimes can also affect your license, even though they aren’t mentioned here. To understand the full repercussions of what you’re dealing with, you’d need to contact our offices and speak to an experienced attorney.
Don’t risk losing your license
Some contractors choose to tackle their cases on their own. This couldn’t be a more significant mistake. You’re not used to handling legal cases or representing yourself in hearings. Losing your contractor license will significantly impact your life. You could find yourself struggling to find a job and pay your bills. Take some of the risks out of your case by hiring an experienced legal team. If you or someone you know is facing the discipline or potential loss of their contractor license, contact us today. We will help you along the way with the goal to keep your contractor license so that you can move forward with your life.
