Eighteen Years Of Experience In Professional Licensing
An allegation of professional misconduct can seriously affect your reputation, your license and your livelihood. If you are a licensed professional facing an investigation or disciplinary charges from a state agency, you need advice from an experienced California professional license defense attorney. Let Mr. Wechsler help you obtain or defend and retain the license you have worked so hard to acquire.
As a former member of the California State Bar’s Committee of Bar Examiners and a respected leader in the field of administrative law and professional license defense, attorney Zachary D. Wechsler understands that the professional disciplinary process is different from the legal process involved in civil litigation or criminal defense.
The professional disciplinary process allows for a range of potential sanctions for an alleged offender, some of which do not rise to the level of formal discipline. Mr. Wechsler’s understanding of the broad range of available corrective and disciplinary options, as well as his familiarity with the cultures of numerous state agencies, often allow him to negotiate more favorable resolutions for his clients than they would have received on their own.
At the Law Office of Zachary D. Wechsler, APC, Mr. Wechsler works closely with clients to provide them with an honest assessment of their exposure, a straightforward evaluation of their defense options and an intelligent strategy designed to maximize their chances for a beneficial outcome. He also advises clients on remedial steps they should take to demonstrate their accountability and to prove they have been rehabilitated. Mr. Wechsler’s experience demonstrates that state agencies respond best when clients show they have changed course, rather than promising to do so. He also believes clients deserve zealous representation when the charges against them are inappropriate or the proposed resolution offers an unacceptable outcome. More importantly, Mr. Wechsler knows when each approach is appropriate.
Even if you are a licensed professional who has already received some form of professional discipline, Mr. Wechsler can help. Attorney Zachary D. Wechsler has successfully assisted clients appealing disciplinary decisions and seeking reversal of the imposed penalty.
