I'm a Speech-Language Pathologist licensed by DHP in Virginia and have my CCC current by ASHA. I was audited and am short CEUs for that time period. It was an honest mistake. I thought the national requirement of 30 in 3 years was the same for state. Before I respond, should I hire an attorney to minimize the reprimand? Or does it even make a difference? What can attorney do to help the situation?
Dear Virginia Beach - Your question is posted in the "DUI & DWI topic, which seems inappropriate, so i changed it to "licensing." You almost always will be better off talking to an attorney with experience in the area where you need assistance. The preference would be to find someone who has practiced in front of the Board in charge of your license. The AVVO find a lawyer feature is often helpful. Good luck!
You may lose your occupation licensing? Of course hire an attorney to mitigate the problem. I will suggest another area as this is not A DWI of Driver's License issue.
