DuPage County Professional License Defense Attorney

Burr Ridge IDFPR hearing defense lawyer

Lawyer Defending Clients in IDFPR Investigations

For many individuals, a professional license is a requirement in your chosen career and receiving a license to practice is a proud achievement. A license lets people know that you can be trusted to provide quality professional services and that those services are monitored by the state. When a license is called into question and you are facing the potential loss of your license and ability to work in your profession, you need an experienced license defense attorney to help you through the process.

At Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C., we understand the threat to your livelihood and your family's financial well-being that you experience when you face a disciplinary hearing that could result in your license being suspended or revoked. Our skilled and knowledgeable attorneys can provide you with the vigorous defense you need to minimize the consequences to your career.

IDFPR License Defense

The Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation (IDFPR) governs professional licenses in the state. When the IDFPR investigates a complaint against a license holder, a hearing may be required to determine whether any disciplinary action is necessary. We can provide clients with legal representation in investigations and hearings for a wide variety of professional licenses, including:

  • Real Estate Brokers - Defending against complaints of escrow money violations, failure to properly use a contract, or other charges of unethical or unprofessional conduct.
  • Real Estate Appraisers - Demonstrating that appraisers did not violate Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
  • Mortgage Brokers - Defense against claims of improper record keeping, substandard mortgage brokerage practices, or violations of department regulations.
  • Accountants - Providing certified public accountants with defense before the Illinois Board of Examiners.
  • Funeral Directors - Defending against complaints of failure to file death certificates in a timely manner, failure to properly fill out a contract for services, or other substandard practices.
  • Cosmetologists - Demonstrating that beauty and barber professionals meet the standards of the Illinois Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and Nail Technology Board.
  • Pharmacists - Defense against claims of distribution of controlled substances, providing improper counsel to patients, improperly filling prescriptions, or other unprofessional or unethical conduct.

Criminal Conviction

Being convicted of certain crimes, such as DUI, sexual assault, domestic battery, possession of a controlled substance, or theft can result in disciplinary action by the IDFPR, including the suspension or revocation of a professional license. If you have been charged with a crime, you should be sure to secure the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help you minimize the consequences to your professional livelihood.
