Advocating for the Certified Public Accountants before the California board of Accountancy

Defending your license against an Accusation, Investigation, or Adverse Action by the California Board of Accountancy can be stressful. As a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), your license is necessary to support yourself, your business, and your family. At the Law Office of Nicole Irmer, we understand the complexities of defending a CPA license, and we understand the immense amount of time, money, and energy it took to achieve your Accounting License. A threat against your license can bring substantial administrative licensing and/or criminal consequences, and jeopardizes your practice, your reputation, and your livelihood. Whether your licensing problem arises from a criminal matter, an Accusation of professional malpractice, or an Ethics Complaint we can assist you in protecting your license.

The California Board of Accountancy monitors the Accounting Services provided by Certified Public Accountants for ethical and professional violations. The California Board of Accountancy’s mission is to “protect consumers by ensuring only qualified licensees practice public accountancy in accordance with established professional standards.” Under the California Accountancy Act and/or California Board of Accountancy regulations, a Public Certified Accountant may be disciplined for:

  • Fraud, Dishonesty, or Gross Negligence in the Performance of Accounting Services
  • Violating the Felony, or a Misdemeanor Involving Fraud or Dishonesty
  • Conduct Indicating Lack of Fitness to Serve as a Certified Public Accountant.

The California Board of Accountancy may take action against a Professional’s license, for violations of applicable statutes or regulations, by revoking or suspending his/her license, by imposing probation or restrictions on the Licensee, or by denying an Applicant a license. At the Law Office of Nicole Irmer we are committed to ensuring that you understand the process, your rights, your options, and the steps necessary to protect your interests.
