In Nevada many professions are governed by state laws requiring an individual obtain a license issued by a state professional licensing board before engaging in their profession. Often the license holder must also obtain additional certificates or registrations to properly practice in their field. The denial or revocation of such a license or other required certificate/registration can result in an individual being prohibited or restricted in their chosen career. Legal assistance is often needed to respond to licensing board investigations, defend against disciplinary matters, or simply obtaining a license under certain circumstances. When such assistance is required, it is crucial to retain counsel that has the right experience and knowledge to best assist the licensee or applicant.

Initial Q & A
“What do I do if I have received a letter notifying me I am under investigation from my licensing board?
Don’t panic. Most licensing boards are legally required to open an investigation upon receipt of a complaint against a licensee (assuming the Board has jurisdiction). This is your initial opportunity to provide the licensing board with information regarding the issue in question and to explain your side of things; this is not the time to mount an aggressive defense.
Do seek legal assistance as quickly as possible. While you may feel that you can respond to the letter on your own, legal counsel experienced in administrative licensing matters can help ensure that the response letter sent to the licensing board addresses not only all factual issues involved in the case, but legal issues, as well.
