Clearwater Professional License Defense Attorney
The prospect of losing a career that you have poured your heart and soul into, and being stripped of a title that you have worked incredibly hard to achieve, can be nearly as daunting as a criminal sentence. The years spent in medical school, the countless Excel spreadsheets scrutinized as a CPA, and the long evening and early morning hours as a broker can all be wiped away with one or two minor errors. Or, false allegations from a disgruntled client or unfriendly coworker can just as easily ruin a career and your future of ever practicing in your desired field again. Our attorneys represent doctors, engineers, teachers, realtors, brokers, CPAs, engineers, and architects who are facing disciplinary hearings and are at threat of losing their professional licenses. Even if the proceedings are in the initial phase or you have yet to be interviewed by an investigator, it is never too early to begin preparing a defense of your title. Before you talk with anyone formally or informally, you should discuss what you are going to say and talk about with an attorney beforehand. You have the right to an attorney present during your hearing as well, and although an attorney may not be allowed to speak for you during that hearing, their guidance is widely accepted as invaluable. Do not attempt to take this daunting process on alone. Call the Clearwater law offices of Roman & Roman today at 877-767-1032 to schedule an appointment with one of our Clearwater professional license defense attorneys as soon as possible.
High Skilled Jobs and High Pressure to Perform
Some of the most highly skilled occupations are the most coveted, as well as important. Many of these types of jobs have high rewards, some monetarily and some morally, because of the skill involved and the importance to society. These same jobs also have some of the highest penalties when it comes to making mistakes, and the pressure to log long hours and come up with positive results in impossible situations is a normality. Doctors, CPAs, engineers, teachers, and architects all fall into this category, and when one person makes a mistake and loses their position, there are dozens waiting eagerly in the background for their chance to fill that void. Florida is a hotbed for positions and education in the healthcare industry. In fact, registered nurses are the most sought after job in Florida, according to the Florida Department of Health. Losing a license or being unfairly dismissed can end a career. Because of this many professions, such as teaching, have strict regulations about licensure issues and dismissal. For example, according to statutes 1012.33 in Florida an educator can only be dismissed if they have been found guilty of committing:
- A crime of moral turpitude;
- Misconduct in the office;
- Gross insubordination;
- Wilful neglect of duty; or
- Underperformance on various numbers of performance reviews within a given amount of time.
There is too much at stake, and putting together a compelling argument to save your career is not something that should be taken lightly. Our attorneys will gather the evidence required to dispel the allegations against you by interviewing those you work with, clients, and other individuals that can assist your cause and show what kind of person you truly are. No matter what you did or what you have been charged with doing, don’t hesitate to act now.
