Professional Licensing Law
Simas & Associates, Ltd. is trusted as a leader in administrative and professional licensing law because of its years of success representing every kind of licensed professional. In representing these professionals – including real estate salespersons and brokers, accountants, engineers, contractors, social workers, insurance brokers, notaries, and fiduciaries – we have handled every type of licensing issue they have faced. This includes:
- Application review and auditing
- Accusations and Statements of Issues
- Requests for Modification of Discipline
Our most extensive experience and skill comes from our administrative law practice. Most professional licensing agencies use the Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”) and administrative hearings in professional license defense. Our attorneys have handled hundreds of case at the administrative hearing level and we know how to best prepare our clients for the administrative hearing process or strike the best terms through a stipulated settlement. Or, if need be, we can appeal the decision, non-adoption, or tactics of the licensing agency through a petition for a writ of administrative mandate. When facing reproval, penalties, fines, probation, suspension, revocation, or even a lifetime ban, you want someone you can trust representing your license and your livelihood.
In addition to guiding our clients through the licensing and disciplinary process, Simas & Associates, Ltd. works with our clients to navigating the consequences of discipline. As one can imagine, discipline in some form is sometimes unavoidable. In those situations, in addition to minimizing the terms of discipline, we can guide our clients through meeting their new obligations. This may mean additional education, credentialing, or therapy. We also educate our clients on the numerous collateral consequences for them and their employers, in order to minimize harm and hardship.
