I was notified that I need to appear before a licensing board before they will issue a license, what should I expect and should I have counsel?

Licensing boards are required to notify you of the reason why they want to meet with you, but often will reserve the right to ask you about other matters that may come up during your board appearance.  You should fully review your license application and any supporting documents prior to the meeting and should have a copy of your application and attachments with you at the time of the meeting.  While counsel is not always necessary at such appearances, it is advisable to consult with legal counsel prior to such an appearance.  The denial of a license for a professional license/registration can have far reaching consequences and often there is limited, if any, ability to appeal or request reconsideration of a denial so proper preparation and representation, when necessary, is absolutely required.
