When your livelihood in Montana depends on you holding a valid professional license, it is vital that you get the help of an attorney who is experienced in this area of the law when your license is threatened. Too much is at stake for you to represent yourself or to trust a lawyer who has not defended these kinds of cases. The professional licensing defense attorneys at Silverman Law Office, PLLC have represented many professionals in matters related to obtaining and maintaining a license in Montana, and we can help you, too.
When Do You Need a Professional Licensing Attorney?
Any time you are at risk of losing your professional license, you should not hesitate to call an attorney to represent you. Our attorneys have represented professionals in all manner of situations, including the following:
- Obtaining and renewing a license. Many professional licensing organizations have complicated application and renewal processes, with strict deadlines and a requirement for completion of certain training programs and other hoops to jump through. Our experienced team can make sure your application is complete the first time and that issues with renewal are resolved in a timely manner to avoid any interruption in your ability to earn a living.
- Appealing denials. If you were denied a license by your regulating board, you can request a hearing with the Department of Labor (DOL) to review their decision and fight for a reversal. You are entitled to an attorney when you appear before the DOL, and we can prepare an appeal on your behalf.
- Defending against complaints or sanctions. If an individual has filed a complaint against you with the DOL, or your regulating board has issued a Notice of Proposed Action for violating professional standards, you have a right to a due process hearing before the DOL. Our attorneys are experienced in these hearings and will present evidence in your defense.
- Any other issue. If you have any questions or concerns about defending your professional license, our attorneys can answer them.
As licensed professionals ourselves, we understand how important it is to you to protect your license and your livelihood. We take professional licensing defense cases very seriously.
