If You are Being Investigated by the IDFPR, Don’t Wait! Call a Lawyer Immediately

If you have been notified by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) that you are being investigated, you may wonder whether it is worth it to hire a lawyer to represent you.  The truth is, you can’t afford not to!

Professional licensees in Illinois may fear that hiring a good administrative law attorney to help them through an IDFPR investigation may make them appear guilty. Nothing could be further from the truth.  Immediately hiring an experienced attorney is the absolute best thing you can do. This is because the right attorney will help you with the investigation process right from the start. Having counsel represent you shows the Department that you respect the Government’s investigative process and that you are willing to cooperate; however, your counsel will also ensure that your interests are protected.

Sometimes a licensee who is under investigation might be afraid that hiring a lawyer to represent them in front of IDPFR might make Department administration members upset or angry.

The reality is that hiring an attorney early in the investigation process can only help things go better for you. With the right representation, the complaint against you may be handled swiftly and confidently, or even found to be without merit. After all, you’ve demonstrated your commitment to defending yourself against any false accusations, which will encourage the Department to handle your case more seriously. IDFPR knows that licensees who hire attorneys are seeking to handle the investigation process as professionally as possible, which can help expedite the entire process.

While hiring a lawyer is essential, finding a lawyer with IDFPR experience is crucial.  Most attorneys have not practiced before IDFPR, and with your professional license on the line, you should consider an attorney that has the experience and relationships with IDFPR.
