Probationary License Granted After Initial Denial

When a veterinary student graduates with their Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree after many years of schooling, they often assume the process of getting their Veterinary License from the California Veterinary Medical Board will be (relatively) easy. This was not the case with one of our recent clients, who was denied his Veterinary License based on a criminal conviction he incurred as a youth over a decade prior. He reached out to Simas & Associates, Ltd., and, with our expertise and understanding of how to negotiate with the Veterinary Medical Board, we convinced the Veterinary Medical Board to offer our client a Probationary License. This was the outcome we desired, and ultimately allowed our client to finally begin practicing in the field in which he studied so hard.
