There are many businesses and professions that require Florida licenses to comply with Florida state laws. Operating a business without these licenses could jeopardize your venture and derail your career. That said, even people with the proper qualifications run into trouble while navigating the complex state application and renewal processes. H. Richard Bisbee P.A. can assist you in resolving issues with the State of Florida licensing agencies.
If so, these are all matters we are prepared to handle for you. We will look over your application and communicate with the appropriate state or county licensing agency to get to the bottom of these complications. After we determine what went awry, we will work with you to rectify the issues standing in the way of your license.
An “administrative case” begins with a state agency’s Notice of Denial (of an application) or administrative complaint (to discipline a licensee). To challenge an agency’s action, you have 21 days to file a petition for an “informal” or “formal” hearing — otherwise, you lose that right. If the alleged facts are not in dispute, you are entitled to an “informal hearing” before an informal hearing officer is appointed by the agency. If facts are disputed, you are entitled to a “formal evidentiary hearing” conducted before an administrative law judge who issues a recommended order to the agency, which then enters a “final order.” Since its inception, H. Richard Bisbee, P.A., has represented numerous applicants and licensees in both informal and formal hearings and is ready to assist you should you require knowledgeable legal representation.
