Professional Licensure: Do Not Let One Mistake Destroy Your Livelihood
Licenses are required for many professions and businesses. Your professional license can be at risk, however, if you have been charged with a crime or if you are a defendant in civil litigation.
Many Florida statutes require professionals to report prosecution and litigation to the licensing board or agency. If you do not have a strong legal defense, your many years of hard work, sacrifice and money can be lost in an instant. But it does not have to be that way.
Representation by a skilled, experienced attorney will protect you from waiving any of your valuable legal rights. At Sheppard, White, Kachergus, & DeMaggio, P.A., we know what steps need to be taken to protect your right to practice your profession, and we are prepared to take those steps on your behalf.

We Help Individuals Obtain Licenses And Gain Admission To The Florida Bar
We also provide legal counsel for individuals who are trying to gain professional licensure. For example, we have experience helping people who are trying to gain admittance to The Florida Bar but have an arrest on their record. When this is the case, the applicant is asked to meet with representatives of the bar to explain the arrest. We work with the individual so he or she is fully prepared for the meeting.
Additionally, if you are applying to law school and have been arrested, we can advise you on how to handle the arrest on both your law school and bar applications. The sooner we can get involved, the more we can help you become a licensed attorney in Florida.
