Professional License Attorneys

Attorney on his office phone

The experienced lawyers at E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy have the aggressive legal approach needed to defend the rights of licensed professionals to practice their profession in New York State.

When a license is required in order for a professional to work, there is a great deal at stake when they are facing professional misconduct, criminal charges, or accusations of any kind.

Accusations, charges of professional misconduct, or criminal misdemeanor or felony charges could result in a professional license being suspended or revoked – essentially putting that professional out of practice or work.

Professional Conduct Defense in New York State

Being a licensed professional by New York State requires adherence to a set of additional responsibilities and levels of conduct and an obligation to follow accepted standards of professional practice as defined by state law, rules, and regulations.

Failure to perform according to these requirements is considered a ‘professional misconduct’ and when proven, typically results in disciplinary action. Any disciplinary inquiry – even if deemed meritless – should be dealt with seriously and quickly.

A professional found to have committed professional misconduct may have his or her professional license revoked or suspended, and may be subject to other disciplinary measures.

With so much at stake, hiring an experienced defense attorney is extremely important. A successful criminal defense attorney is highly qualified in protecting the rights of licensed professionals and ensuring the career and lifetime earning potential of professionals licensed by New York State.
