Were you accused of practicing your trade without a license?

Federal and state laws provide the United States governments and state governments with the ability to enforce professional licensing standards. This means that certain regulated fields and industries may require that the individuals who work in them have special licensing.

Fields and professions that require licensing, for example, include: lawyers, psychologists, engineers, teachers, occupational therapists, social workers, tradesmen like plumbers, nurses, doctors, massage therapists, barbers and other professions.

In spite of federal and state licensing requirements for different professional workers, however, there are many individuals practicing in their respective fields without a legal license to do so. This might happen if someone fails to maintain their license by completing continuing education requirements. It might also happen in the case of a license that has expired. It could also happen in the case of an immigrant who moves to the United States and continues to practice his or her profession, but fails to obtain a professional license that functions in the United States.

A lot of legal challenges can arise over licensing disagreements and requirements from state to state and country to country. If you have a professional license to practice your craft, and you move to Ohio or away from Ohio, for example, it's important to understand how licensing standards may differ from state to state. If you're new to the United States, it is especially important that you investigate the new licensing requirements that apply to you.

If you've been accused of practicing your trade or profession without a license, you may require a professional licensure defense attorney to help you with your disciplinary action defense. Your attorney can help you fight the claims being brought against you, and also assist you with obtaining appropriate licensing if required.
