Appealing Disciplinary Actions And License Denials

If your licensing board has already taken action, such as a citation, suspension, revocation or license denial, you may still have recourse.  At the Law Office of Nicole Irmer we have successfully reversed, modified, or appealed adverse decisions by an agency.  This was accomplished by either working within the appropriate agency, challenging an agency decision at hearing, or appealing by means of a Writ of Mandate.
