Sound Legal Counsel for Those Seeking to Reinstate a California Professional License
In order to seek the reinstatement of your professional license in California you must wait for a specific period of time to pass and then present a strong case to your licensing board or agency which documents and demonstrates a substantial change in circumstances.
The professional license defense attorneys at the Watkins Firm will work with you to develop a strong reinstatement packet which documents the steps you have taken towards rehabilitation and mitigating the actions, circumstances or health issues which resulted in the loss of your professional license.
We will stand with you and represent your best interests at every point in the process. You can’t fight this process alone. We will help to present convincing evidence and compelling reasons for the California board or agency to approve your medical and healthcare license reinstatement.
Why Do You Need an Attorney to Seek Reinstatement of Your Professional License?
Seeking the reinstatement of your professional license is not an easy matter, nor is it an automatic process. Once the specified period of time has passed, the legal burden of proof for your reinstatement lies with you. You must present evidence of your “good conduct” during a probationary period and that you have not only engaged in but successfully completed appropriate “rehabilitation” established in your case or defined by the specific policies of the governing board or agency.
In addition, the Watkins Firm will work to gain the support of other professionals who might attest to your skill, character and worthiness for reinstatement. We must create a compelling case for your reinstatement.
Unfortunately, many applications for reinstatement are denied. If you have been denied reinstatement the attorneys at the Watkins Firm can request a legal hearing before an administrative law judge to prove your case and seek an order for the reinstatement of your professional license.
