Professional License Disputes

The Florida Board of Medicine, Florida Board of Nursing, Florida Department of Education, and Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation issue and regulate the licenses of countless doctors, educators, tradesmen, and occupational professionals of many types. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation is the Florida agency charged with licensing and regulating businesses and professionals in the State of Florida, such as cosmetologists, veterinarians, real estate agents and many other professional and business licenses. When you receive a complaint, administrative charges, notice of disciplinary action, or discipline against your Florida professional or business license, your livelihood is at stake. It is important to ensure you receive due process rights, procedural rights, and a fair hearing when your license is in jeopardy with an administrative agency or when an administrative agency (such as the DBPR, DOE, BON, BOM or other agency of the State of Florida) has rejected your license application. You may have questions like, “What do I do when I get a DBPR notice of disciplinary action?” or “What are my rights when I am accused of misconduct by the Florida Board of Nursing?” Consulting and/or engaging a lawyer early in the administrative process is a prudent first step.
