Professional Licenses

Administrative law includes regulatory and licensing laws of any local, state, municipal or federal agency or board. Many of these issue licenses and provide both regulatory and disciplinary functions. Our experienced administrative and real estate law attorneys have appeared before both boards and agencies and have assisted professionals with obtaining, protecting and retaining professional licenses. When real estate agents, appraisers and other licensed real estate professionals are involved in litigation or allegations of wrongdoing, they can be at risk for having their licenses suspended or revoked. The real estate professional has rights, including a hearing before an administrative law judge at the Arizona Board of Appraisals or the Arizona Department of Real Estate. This is an opportunity to present defenses and provide a strong argument for license retention. In some cases, findings before administrative law judges are admissible in civil litigation cases.
