Hiring an Attorney to Defend A Complaint Against Your South Carolina Social Work License:

Defending your South Carolina social work license begins at the investigative stage.  The investigator assigned to your Board of Social Work Examiners complaint will contact you to learn more about what occurred.  This step can be invaluable to your case. Don’t risk the chance that the investigator is simply looking to affirm the allegations that have been presented to him or her.

You may possess information that is helpful to your position and may influence how the Board perceives your case.  Don’t take the chance of proceeding with an incomplete file. Let us prepare a statement on your behalf. We routinely prepare statements for clients defending SC LLR Board Complaints.  Although LLR must prove that you violated the Social Work Practice Act and governing regulations in order to impose disciplinary action, we firmly believe that advocating your position in the investigative stage can impact the disposition of your case.  It is important that you prepare a vigorous defense of your name and license.

Appearing before the SC Board of Social Work Examiners

Our SC social work board complaint defense attorneys will meet with the attorney assigned to your case, review the evidence, advocate your position, and if necessary, request a board appearance. You are entitled to appear and have your case heard.

We frequently appear before SC LLR boards and will advocate on your behalf to protect your right to continued practice. We also routinely represent clients called to appear for an application or license renewal hearing. Proper preparation is critical. Our professional license defense attorneys will work with you to ensure that you are prepared and ready for your appearance.
