We help professionals applying for licenses and appealing license denials. Navigating professional licensing application requirements and forms can be overwhelming—whether you are applying for the first time or renewing an existing license. Regulatory rules are not always clear, and some agencies require compliance with long-term policies that remain unwritten. You may be uncertain whether you meet all licensing requirements or unsure how some information bears on your application. With years of experience dealing with Kansas licensing authorities, JHC’s Topeka professional licensure defense lawyers can help you to understand your board’s application requirements, what information from your past may be cause for concern, and how to demonstrate that you are not only eligible, but suitable, for Kansas licensure. If your application or renewal submission has been denied, JHC’s Topeka professional licensing lawyers can advise you regarding your appeal options, help you appeal, or help you get it right the next time around.

We defend professionals during administrative and disciplinary investigations. JHC’s licensure defense attorneys advise and defend professionals during each step of the disciplinary process, including the initial investigation. We have managed regulatory and disciplinary investigations for numerous professionals governed by various Kansas boards, so we know exactly how to protect your interests while facilitating your cooperation. We will do everything in our power to ensure the investigation process is fair and just. We will advise you regarding how you can provide context that works in your favor. And we will work for the dismissal of unsubstantiated claims at the earliest possible juncture.

We help professionals resolve their administrative and disciplinary matters. In the event a complaint has merit or extended litigation would impair ongoing business concerns, JHC’s Topeka professional licensure defense attorneys can help you explore the possibility of a reasonable settlement. We always aim to negotiate terms that work for you, your practice, and your business while balancing your desire for a prompt resolution. We counsel our clients thoroughly to ensure they understand and appreciate each option’s risks and benefits—both legally and practically.

We represent professionals in formal administrative and disciplinary proceedings. When a formal disciplinary action is filed against you or your business, you need a licensing lawyer with extensive experience handling these types of cases. While the paperwork and proceedings may look similar to general civil litigation at first blush, administrative proceedings are truly unique. Specific procedures and standards apply that are much different from civil proceedings, making the administrative hearing process challenging for inexperienced attorneys to navigate. The regulatory board will present evidence (documents, witness testimony, etc.) to support a finding of misconduct, non-compliance, or deviations from the standard of care. Disciplinary options include, but are not limited to, remedial training, public censure, suspension or revocation of your license. JHC’s Topeka professional licensure advocates regularly handle these matters, and we do it with ease. We know how to challenge adverse evidence and how to build your case. With our track record of success, you can trust us to handle any disciplinary issue you are facing.

We appeal from adverse agency actions. If an adverse ruling is entered and action is taken against your license, an appeal may be in your best interest. JHC’s Topeka professional license defense lawyers have ample appeal experience and know how to defend your license at this next level.

If you need a professional licensure lawyer in Topeka, look no further. JHC’s experienced licensure defense attorneys can guide you through any licensing or disciplinary matter you face.

Topeka Liquor License Lawyers

JHC’s licensure lawyers also assist individuals and businesses in need of counsel and representation for liquor licensing issues. In Kansas, the production, dissemination, and sale of alcohol is regulated by the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Division (ABC). Any business that depends on alcoholic beverage sales needs an ABC license and must comply with myriad laws and regulations.

Our Topeka licensing attorneys also represent clients facing ABC administrative proceedings. We defend against any unfounded claims, determine whether identified issues can be rectified without substantial impairment to your license, and advocate for fair and just outcomes.


I am an insurance broker who holds a non-resident license in Kansas. Do I need to report discipline from another state in Kansas?

Does the Kansas Real Estate Commission require realtors to self-report arrests?

Realtors licensed by the Kansas Real Estate Commission must report your arrests, criminal charges, and criminal convictions to the Commission within 10 days of any such occurrence. A realtor who does not report as required may be disciplined by the Commission for that alone—even if the charges are ultimately dismissed. For help defending your Kansas real estate license, contact JHC’s professional licensure defense lawyers.

Will I be disciplined if I do not timely renew my accounting firm’s registration and CPA permit?

Kansas accountants and accounting firms must maintain current registrations and permits with the Kansas Board of Accountancy.

For representation regarding any disciplinary issue before the KSBOA, contact JHC’s professional licensure defense lawyers.
