Knoxville Professional Discipline & License Suspension Lawyer
What is Professional Discipline?
Professional discipline is the process by which an employer or other professional entity governs individuals based on standard accountability & ethics in a professional setting. If repetitive infractions take place individuals are disciplined by revoking the license necessary to complete their work.
If you require a license to hold your job, such as a childcare license or medical license, then your career could be put into jeopardy if you are facing disciplinary action. Professional disciplinary organizations often use license suspension as their primary form of penalty. This could put serious strain on your finances and future career opportunities. At Eldridge & Blakney, our Knoxville attorneys represent professional license holders in disciplinary hearings.

Why Was My License Suspended?
Disciplinary hearings for professionals often occur when a license holder has been convicted of a crime, even if that crime has nothing to do with their license or work. The circumstances that lead to an arrest or conviction can vary a great deal, but the licensing board will usually want to hold this proceeding out of concern for how this conviction reflects on your professional standards. It is important to make it clear to these boards that any outstanding criminal concerns in no way impact or influence the work that you do.
Our firm frequently represents professionals in the following professions:
- Real Estate
- Commercial driving
- Funeral services
Even if you were not convicted of a crime, a licensing board may order a disciplinary hearing to learn more about the details of your arrest. It is important you have an experienced litigator representing you so that your side of the story can be told clearly and without obfuscation.
