Q: What is the Accusation I received from my licensing board?

A: The Accusation is the charging document used by your licensing board or agency to take an adverse action against your professional license. The Accusation sets forth all the factual allegations the licensing board or agency is basing its action on, the California statutes and agency regulations relied upon in taking the adverse action, and the proposed penalty – i.e., probation, monetary fine, license suspension, license revocation, etc. The accusation is usually prepared by an attorney for the agency. It is imperative that you respond promptly to the Accusation in the time required to preserve your administrative appeal rights. Hiring a California license defense lawyer to prepare your response is recommended.

Q: What is the Statement of Issues I received after applying for licensure?

A: The Statement of Issues is the document used by your licensing board or agency to deny your application for a California license. The Statement of Issues sets forth all the factual allegations the licensing agency or board is basing its denial on, and the California regulations and statutes relied upon in the denial of your license application. The Statement of Issues is usually prepared by a lawyer for the board. It is imperative that you respond promptly to the Statement of Issues in the time required to preserve your administrative appeal rights. Hiring a California license defense attorney to prepare your response is recommended.

Q: What is the Notice of Defense?

A: The Notice of Defense is your legal response to either an Accusation or Statement of Issues, depending upon whether you are already a license holder or are applying for a license for the first time. The licensing board or agency is legally required to serve you with a blank Notice of Defense form to use in responding to the Accusation or Statement of Issues. The blank Notice of Defense form the agency provides typically contains only the bare minimum information necessary to request an appeal hearing, but does not preserve many of the legal objections and other rights you have in the appeal process. Hiring a California license defense attorney to prepare a more legally comprehensive Notice of Defense, asserting all your available legal objections and protecting your other legal rights, is recommended.
