Arizona Professional Licensing Board Defense

Professional Licensing Board Defense

Arizona Professional Licensing Board Defense may be necessary for a professional that wants to maintain an unencumbered license. A professional license is a valuable thing to have, usually indicating a professional standing in life and a career that has been years in the making. It is vital to ensure a license is preserved and kept intact because a lot of time and effort has been invested in it. When disputes arise or other circumstances create legal trouble with a license, it is important to know what to do.  Chelle Law has represented over 1000 licensed professionals before over 25 different Arizona professional licensing boards.

Professional Licensing Board Complaint

When legal trouble with your professional license rears its head, you know you need to get on top of it as soon as possible. It could be you were arrested or convicted of an offense in criminal court. Perhaps a complaint got your license suspended or revoked. A professional licensing board is there to protect the public, so they are not going to work in your best interests. You cannot rely on your licensing board to be lenient in any way. It’s best to hire an attorney who will work for you and with you to protect you and your license.  Some selected Boards we have assisted with include:
