For a licensed professional, finding out you have been accused of wrong-doing is a serious allegation. Such accusations carry potentially disastrous consequences ranging from administrative probation and public reprimand, to the loss of your license. The South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR) has jurisdiction over the licensing of many professions. Allegations against you before the board may involve substance abuse, felony convictions, drug charges, theft, crimes of dishonesty, misuse of medicine, driving under the influence (DUI), and even improper advertising. When your professional license is on the line, call Sansbury Law Firm.
Examples of professions that may face LLR disciplinary proceedings include:
Don’t face the LLR disciplinary board alone. You may have already been formally accused by the LLR regarding a violation, or you may anticipate that disciplinary allegations are forthcoming. Beyond the obvious representation before the board, an attorney can help advise you on whether you should self-report, how you should self-report, minimizing the collateral consequences of any criminal charges, and keeping your license to practice while LLR proceedings are pending. An enormous amount of strategy is involved when your professional license is on the line.
