Saving Professional Licenses

When you face the loss of your professional livelihood, you need help from an attorney who understands how these unique legal proceedings work.

At the Law Office of Zachary D. Wechsler, APC, Mr. Wechsler offers you more than 18 years of experience in professional licensing defense and state bar proceedings. On top of that Mr. Wechsler also holds extensive experience as a professional writer.

This rare combination of legal acumen and writing ability allows Mr. Wechsler to offer you the kind of legal representation best suited to protecting your professional livelihood. Many of these proceedings can be addressed through effectively drafted communications. Where they cannot, Mr. Wechsler can then draw upon a broad knowledge base in these professional licensing and state bar matters gained from service in a number of positions:

  • He was appointed to a four-year term on the Committee of Bar Examiners by the then Board of Governors of the State Bar of California.
  • He served as deputy attorney general for the state of California. During that time, he represented several state boards and agencies.
  • He was appointed special master by the State Bar of California to accompany peace officers in conducting searches for documentary evidence under the control of attorneys, physicians, psychotherapists and clergy members.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Successful representation of professionals and their licenses requires a different set of legal skills than those of a civil litigator or criminal defense attorney. Resolution of cases often involves working closely with clients, as well as with opposing counsel and investigators for the agency involved, understanding the culture of each particular agency and the specific application of the law necessary to achieve a particular outcome.

Mr. Wechsler's experience and accompanying skill set enable that exact approach. Therefore, if you are facing legal proceedings that will affect your ability to practice as a licensed professional in your field, contact the firm as soon as possible. The sooner you contact Mr. Wechsler, the sooner he can begin taking proactive steps in mitigation and gathering the necessary information and developing a successful strategy to save your license.

Take Advantage Of A Proactive Approach

Mr. Wechsler does not sit around and wait for charges to be filed before stepping into action. Usually, there are proactive steps to be taken to demonstrate mitigation and rehabilitation that can soften the blow of a disciplinary action. Often, the best defense is a good offense and that means knowledge of the law and of successful legal strategies that can best position you and your case, even before a charge has been filed.
