Administrative / Professional Licensing Hearings

Welcome to the Law Office of Jacklyn Bentley, serving the entire San Francisco Bay Area. I have years of experience providing legal representation and guidance for Administrative Licensing Hearings in California. Whether you are facing a license denial or have received an Accusation, I am here to protect your rights and help you navigate through these challenging situations.

I offer comprehensive legal assistance for two main types of Administrative Licensing Hearings:

1. License Application Denial Cases:

If you have applied for a professional license through the State of California and received a denial or a communication asking you to apply for an “exemption,” this is the time to contact an attorney.  I have worked on many cases like this, and I will carefully review your case, identify the reasons for the denial, and provide guidance on the best approach for appealing the decision or getting the exemption you need.

My goal in representing potential license holders is to present a strong case to the licensing board and show them why you deserve to pursue the career of your choice.  You worked hard to get to this point, don’t let the licensing board stop you from pursuing your goals.

2. License Revocation Cases:

If you have received a notice, typically titled an “Accusation,” regarding your professional license, you should contact an attorney immediately.  You have a limited time to respond to the notice you have received, and you need to respond properly to protect the license you worked hard to get.  Contacting me can start this process off right and make sure you respond by all deadlines.

I will explain the situation you are facing and help you build a strategy to protect your livelihood.  This all starts with properly preparing a “Notice of Defense.”  From there, you need an attorney prepared to vigorously defend your license and strive towards achieving the best possible outcome in your case.
