Most professional license investigations are handled by the board’s enforcement unit. Investigations are normally triggered either by a criminal conviction (possibly disclosed on a first-time or renewal application) or by a report to the board alleging unprofessional conduct and/or fraud. At this point, the board’s enforcement unit or division of professional practices may contact the licensee or license applicant requesting additional information about the alleged misconduct. It is crucial that the licensee retain the services of an experienced professional license defense attorney like Jonathan Turner right away. It is also advantageous if the professional license defense attorney is located near the offices of the licensing agency or board. Most California licensing boards and agencies including the Department of Consumer Affairs are based in Sacramento, California.
