Representing Licensing Boards in North Carolina
Unique perspective. Proven experience.
As one of the oldest continuing law firms in Raleigh, we were one of the first private firms to represent State occupational and professional licensing boards in North Carolina. Attorneys in our firm have, in the past, represented the Board of Dental Examiners, the Board of Pharmacy, the Auctioneer Licensing Board and the Board of Barber Examiners.
Currently, we represent or provide legal services to the Private Protective Services Board, the Alarm Systems Licensing Board, the Board of Landscape Architects, the Veterinary Medical Board, and the Board of Funeral Service.* This experience gives our firm a unique perspective while representing you.
Over 110 occupations and professions in North Carolina require some type of license, permit, certification or registration. Given the complex law and administrative rules that govern these professions, it is easy for an individual to become the subject of an investigation or disciplinary action by one of the State’s occupational and professional licensing boards or by some other State agency.
Your livelihood is too important to go it alone.
If you are a licensed, permitted or certified professional in North Carolina and need help, please call us.
At Bailey & Dixon, LLP, our combined legal experience has gained us a reputation throughout North Carolina for vigorously representing our clients at hearings before State occupational licensing boards. Our attorneys are prepared to defend clients against allegations of professional misconduct, ethics violations, violations of fiduciary responsibility and professional incompetence.
Having represented State government agencies and boards, we understand how licensing boards operate and think. We will vigorously protect you in the application to practice, or in defense of your right to practice your profession. We represent:
An investigation and possible resulting administrative hearing is an adversarial situation. When your professional or occupational license is in jeopardy, you need a lawyer who can put years of experience defending professionals to work for you. We strongly urge you to seek competent legal counsel prior to responding to or appearing before your licensing board.
*Please note that Bailey & Dixon, LLP cannot represent you before any one of these five boards.
