Do I need an attorney for professional license defense?

The time and money you’ve spent to earn and maintain your license is an investment you made in your future. When your license is in jeopardy, so is your career and your livelihood. If you have been accused of professional misconduct, you may still face discipline even if it doesn’t seem justified by the allegation or complaint on its face. The Office of the Indiana Attorney General (OIAG) is tasked with fully investigating all consumer complaints. In the course of their confidential investigation, the OIAG has the power to subpoena records, conduct depositions, and task investigators, all prior to initiating a formal action against you or your license. Even if criminal charges against you are dropped or dismissed, they can still trigger disciplinary proceedings against your license. The burden of proof is lower in the licensure action, and the criminal prosecution is completely separate from the disciplinary action brought before the licensing board. With so much potentially on the line, it’s in your interests to be represented by a defense attorney with experience in professional licensing. At Dillon Legal Group, you can put our experience to work on your behalf. Whether your license is under threat due to consumer complaints or a criminal matter, let us put your legal interests first so that you can focus on your professional life.
