Our Successful Track Record
Seattle Litigation Group, PLLC will handle all components of your professional license defense before a Washington state agency or board. Seattle Litigation Group, PLLC can represent your interests in the following areas:
1. The defense of an initial investigation either before or after a statement of charges is issued.
2. Case preparation and hearings before the agency director or the Office of Administrative Hearings.
3. Presentations and compliance review before your professional licensing board or agency regulatory officer.
4. Challenging license suspensions and revocations before the Office of Administrative Hearings and in Washington state courts.
We have a proven track record in successfully defending professional licenses against accusations. Our attorneys will leave no stone unturned to create a strong defense. Your livelihood depends on your professional or occupational license.
Accusations of professional misconduct or other wrong-doing pose a serious threat. If you face possible licensing suspension or revocation because of charges of record keeping violations or alleged violations of state agency rules or regulations, you should only consider hiring an aggressive professional licensing defense attorney.
The result of a disciplinary review or investigation can have lasting effects. It may seem like a meritless claim but you will not know until you are in front of the agency hearing officer, board of review, or administrative law judge. The state officers can be arbitrary and capricious in their determinations and may overstep their statutory authority. Small business owners cannot afford to spend months waiting for the state agencies to reinstate a license after a meritless charge. The choice of representation by a professional license defense attorney who can protect what is at stake can be the most important decision you can ever make.
If you face a disciplinary action due to unfounded allegations of unethical, illegal or substandard practices, everything you worked for could be in jeopardy.
