As you can see, there are a variety of reasons why you might face disciplinary action or have a board hearing. We have handled numerous cases, and we use this knowledge to build your defense. Contact us today to go over your options.
What are some grounds for disciplinary action?
Every case is different, but there are some similarities in cases. Some of these cases have resulted in disciplinary action and even loss of licenses:
– Conviction of any crime that involves moral turpitude
– Fraud or deceit in getting the license
– Substance abuse issues
– Physically and mentally incapable of safely practicing engineering
A DWI is a criminal charge that could result in the loss of your license. If you have received one DWI, then you might be ok, but a felony DWI is a different story. So, you can see how it is important to retain the best professional license defense lawyer possible. It would help if you didn’t risk losing your license when a lawyer improves your odds of being successful.
What happens with a board hearing?
Every professional licensing board is a bit different, but they also have similar practices. Once the board receives a complaint, they must follow through with an investigation. They will notify you that a case has been opened. You might not know the identity of the person that filed the complaint; this is up to the board. The minute that you find out there’s an investigation or hearing; you need to hire legal representation. Many engineers think that they are helpful in their cases by providing information. However, this information can be used against you in your hearing. Having a skilled attorney in your corner will help protect you during the process.
