I am applying for a license and I have a criminal record. Will they license me?

This is a complicated matter and is at the heart of a great many licensure disputes and disciplinary actions brought against licensees. Generally, sex offenders have the hardest time getting licensed, as do individuals who have a fiduciary crime or a crime that involves moral turpitude on their record. The burden is not necessarily insurmountable, but it is a process that is best handled by an attorney with experience in this area. Many agencies will issue probationary, provisional, or restrictive licenses after an initial hearing on the applicant’s current moral character and fitness. It is wise to have counsel to help you prepare your application and advocate for you throughout this process through the gathering of mitigating and rehabilitative evidence.
