DuPage County IDFPR Defense Attorney

DuPage County IDFPR Defense Attorney

At 1818 – An Advocacy Group, our DuPage County IDFPR defense attorney is proud to represent clients facing professional license issues in the Chicago area. The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) is the office in charge of issuing – and revoking – many types of professional licenses, and these officials have the authority to alter your career path. If your license might be revoked or even suspended, you need legal defense representation right away. 

Professional Licenses in Illinois

Many people choose their career paths carefully, making sure to get the education they need and meet other requirements set by the state, such as passing medical boards or the bar exam. However, once you complete your education, you must obtain a license from the state to practice in certain professions. Our law firm regularly works with a wide range of professionals, including:

  • Acupuncturists
  • Architects
  • Cemetery managers
  • Certified public accountants
  • Cosmetologists
  • Court reporters
  • Detectives
  • Dieticians and nutritionists
  • Fingerprint vendors
  • Embalmers and funeral directors
  • Home inspectors
  • Massage therapists
  • Nurses
  • Pharmacists
  • Physicians and surgeons
  • Engineers
  • Real estate agents
  • Leasing agents
  • Roofing professionals
  • Social workers
  • Veterinarians and vet technicians

The IDFPR can deny an application for a professional license based on different factors – commonly, it involves past conduct that might indicate your inability to practice your profession in the best interests of the public. If your license application has been denied, contact a license defense attorney immediately. 

If Your License is Threatened

Once you have your professional license, different things might trigger an investigation by the IDFPR. For example, someone could file a complaint about potentially unethical or otherwise wrongful conduct that is not in line with the expectations or regulations of your profession. 

When the IDFPR launches an investigation, everything you say and do is critical to your case. You want the guidance of a license defense lawyer to ensure you do not do anything to jeopardize your investigation. You should respond to requests for information from the IDFPR, but you want to respond to them in the right manner. It is always wise to have all responses come directly from your attorney.

When you have legal counsel, the IDFPR will know that you take your professional license and your case seriously. Attempting to defend yourself in these highly personal matters can often hurt your future. There is a lot at stake – your career – so you should have the right law firm on your side.
