Attorneys Protecting The Licenses Of Accountants

The Pennsylvania State Board of Accountancy is serious about enforcing the rules and regulations related to professional licensure. Some accountants run into roadblocks in procuring a license. Others have a license but find themselves in a situation where the board is threatening to suspend or revoke it. In these types of scenarios, an accountant can benefit greatly from working with attorneys who understand professional licensing issues.

Caldwell & Kearns, P.C., is a Harrisburg law firm with extensive experience in advising and representing accountants on matters related to their professional licenses. This area of our practice is led by James L. Goldsmith, who has handled license defense and related issues for accountants in Pennsylvania for many years. Additionally, the firm has in the past represented the Pennsylvania Association of Certified Public Accountants. Our level of experience and understanding in this area of law is of great value to our clients.

When To Call A Lawyer

The State Board of Accountancy and the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs (BPOA) conduct investigations into accountants whose professional capabilities or practices have been called into question. Often, the issue is related to chemical dependency, criminal activity or mental impairment.

In such situations, a complaint may be lodged against the accountant and the Professional Health Monitoring Program (PHMP) is notified. The PHMP is likely to send you an application asking you to participate in the program.

Call our Harrisburg CPA license attorneys before responding. The application and any related forms may, in fact, limit some of your rights. It is important to speak with a lawyer experienced in professional license defense before you move forward with any paperwork.
