Protecting Your Professional License

If you are an attorney, a doctor, or any other highly trained professional, you have built your profession by obtaining your license. You devoted countless hours and resources to complete your degree. You studied to pass the most difficult Bar exam in the country. Your license is invaluable. So is your reputation. You can’t work in your profession without protecting both.

When your license is on the line, call Erin, who spent over 18 years as a State Bar prosecutor. She has the experience you need to guide you through the sometimes Byzantine State Bar investigation process. Erin has experience in licensing matters involving attorneys, doctors, EMTs and paramedics.

Don’t make the mistake of responding to the State Bar (or any investigating agency) on your own. Too many times, professionals create more problems with their responses than they faced at the outset. With almost 30 years of experience, Erin Joyce has helped professionals throughout Los Angeles, Orange County and Southern California avoid arbitrary and inequitable sanctions, keep their licenses and reestablish their careers through the reinstatement process.

Ethics/reinstatement My husband was a lawyer who referred cases to a law firm which gave him referral fees. I was a lawyer as well but I became inactive several years ago, When my husband passed away, there were many remaining cases that he had referred but had not been settled. The firm said I could receive a portion of those fees but only if I was reinstated as a lawyer. Their theory was that you cannot pay referral fees to a non-lawyer, which is usually the rule. I called Erin Joyce who immediately said those fees were an asset of his estate and that I did not need to be reinstated. She wrote me a comprehensive legal memo to that effect which I presented to the firm. I received the fees (they insisted on a lesser rate) without being reinstated. Erin Joyce and her firm were thorough and communicated with me to be sure they had a full understanding of the facts. They were extremely helpful in tho comprehensive legal memo they sent to me so that I received what was rightfully mine, I highly recommend her firm to anyone with similar issues.
Amazing Advocate Erin Joyce is an amazing lawyer and advocate. Every attorney and legal professional on her team are highly skilled at their jobs. I felt truly heard and my case was handled better than I could have imagined. I highly recommend the Erin Joyce Firm!
