Professional Licensing and Discipline

Legal Services for Your Professional Licensing Needs

At Carter Conboy, we recognize that nothing is more critical to a professional’s career than his or her license to practice.  We are acutely aware that the number of complaints against professionals has risen sharply due, in part, to the requirement that licensing bodies review every complaint received regardless of the source or merit.

Accomplished Professional Licensing Attorneys

Whether it is professional licensing, professional liability, or the defense of professional malpractice claims, the attorneys at Carter Conboy have the ability, experience, and competence necessary to guide you through the intricate, challenging, and often emotional process that accompanies professional licensing issues.

We are your advocates from the early stages through our rigorous representation before investigating committees.

Our goal is simple: protect your license, reputation, business, and livelihood.
