Advice on What Not to Do
When your license is in jeopardy or you are summoned by your professional board, experts agree on several things to avoid. Some of those include:
Providing inadequate documentation to the board
Taking a board investigation lightly or ignoring it altogether
Assuming that the board will find you innocent or that the claim lacks merit
Responding to a letter from the board before contacting an attorney
Discussing anything or holding any meetings without legal representation present
Venting about your stress about the board hearing/case to anyone other than an attorney, consultant, or spouse
Turning in documents, materials, or records to the board without consulting with an attorney first
Many of these actions can be easy to do in a moment of stress or even by trying to accommodate the board’s requests. Committing any one of them can greatly increase your chance of losing your license.
Experts within and beyond the legal field agree that you need to at least consult with an attorney before engaging in any sort of communication with the board presiding over your license discipline. If you’re in the unfortunate situation of being called before the board and are at risk of losing your license, contact Sandage Law today to learn how you can improve your chances of keeping your license.
