Minnesota Real Estate License Defense Attorney
If your real estate license is in jeopardy because of alleged misconduct, you need a real estate license defense lawyer who is dedicated to achieving the best result for you. Fabian Hoffner has experience facing licensing Boards in the state of Minnesota, defending clients against allegations that they committed some kind of misconduct within their profession.
While there are times that the allegations are true, that does not mean the end of an individual’s professional career. Even if there is merit to the accusations, facts can be revealed to the Board, showing that the individual should not lose their license. Many times, mistakes are made and they can be shown as just that. A single mistake does not make a real estate agent a bad one.
Real Estate Agent Conduct
One of the most common allegation types is that involving conduct. This is conduct while on the job and conduct while off-duty, such as substance abuse or a criminal charge or conviction of any kind. Any action that is perceived as something that reflects poorly on the profession can leave the real estate agent subject to sanctions. These sanctions can involve the suspension or revocation of the real estate license. Other consequences involve fines, educational courses, civil lawsuits against the brokerage, and others.
We have represented real estate agents that have been accused of fraud, misrepresentation, practicing without a license, conflicts of interest, failure to disclose seller affiliations, escrow misappropriation, and crimes of moral turpitude. We can also represent you if you have applied for your real estate license and you are appealing a denial.
Building Your Defense
When you are facing allegations of misconduct, Fabian Hoffner will present objections to the allegations against you, conduct discovery on your behalf, use strategies to reveal the facts in your case, and also represent you throughout the administrative trial process. If you feel you need to appeal to overturn the Real Estate Board’s decision to suspend or revoke your license, we will appeal.
To build this strategic defense, it is ideal for you to contact our office as soon as you find out you are under investigation for misconduct. You will usually receive a letter that informs you of this investigation and it is likely some kind of response will be required from you. You should not submit your response until your real estate license defense lawyer has seen the letter and can advise you on how to respond.
