Professional Licensing Defense Attorneys for State Bar in California

At Kosnett Professional Licensing Defense, our Los Angeles attorneys know even lawyers need legal advice, guidance, and representation — especially when their legal license is the subject of adverse action.

The California State Bar has strict ethical guidelines for practicing lawyers and Rules of Professional Conduct set forth by the California State Bar Act. When the Bar is alerted to any potential wrongdoing, the attorney’s license may be in jeopardy.

Whether their legal needs involve license applications, investigations, disclosures, denials, disciplinary proceedings, appeals, reinstatements, or other related legal matters, our Los Angeles County license defense attorneys are here to help prevent potential approval issues, fight for the accused, and appeal unfair decisions.

If you have been contacted by a State Bar investigator, it is crucial that you contact our leading California state bar licensing defense attorneys right away to ensure your rights are protected from the start of their inquiry and investigation.

Any statements you make to an investigator can become admissions that can be used against you later in court. Our skilled state bar defense lawyers in California will proactively address all agency concerns and facilitate communication between you and the State Board in a managed, documented, and controlled manner.

When Do I Need a California State Bar Defense Attorney?

If you have received a Notice of Disciplinary Charges or have been contacted by a California State Bar investigator, you need a defense attorney by your side to ensure your rights are protected going forward.

Your California State Bar license is your livelihood, and the possibility of losing it can impact your personal and professional life in unimaginable ways.

Notices must be responded to quickly, and investigations will move forward without your inclusion, so delaying or ignoring these matters will only further jeopardize your ability to practice law.

We can help.

  • Adverse history disclosures on license renewal forms.
  • Attorney trust account violations.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty.
  • Discipline against other licenses, including insurance or real estate licenses.
  • Discipline against out-of-state licenses.

  • Failure to cooperate with State Bar investigators.
  • Initial or renewal license denials.
  • Moral turpitude violations.
  • Negligence complaints.

No matter which stage of the licensing process you are in — whether you are applying, just starting out, or have been in good standing with the California State Bar for decades — you should never face a disciplinary notice or investigation alone.

Your current livelihood and future success rely on remaining in good standing with the California Bar Association. We can help protect your rights, and ensure you understand the allegations against you, so you can make informed decisions about your case. Contact us today to learn more.
