Accounting License Defense Lawyers

South Carolina Accounting License Defense Attorneys

The practice of Accounting in South Carolina is regulated. Title 40 of the South Carolina Statutes expressly provides for the creating of the South Carolina Board of Accountancy. The Board is tasked with administering and enforcing the law as it applies to a Certified Public Accountant (“CPA”) and/or Public Accountant (“PA”). If you or a loved one is under investigation with the South Carolina Board of Accountancy, you need an accounting license defense attorney.

As a licensed South Carolina CPA or PA, your accounting license is vital to enable you to support yourself and your family.

Despite your best efforts to work diligently and ethically on behalf of your clients, the reality is that a disgruntled client, colleague, or employee can file a complaint against you with the South Carolina Board of Accountancy. This will prompt an investigation and possible disciplinary action, which may bring lifelong consequences.

Similarly, despite your best effort, your request for a South Carolina Accounting License may be denied.

Many professionals feel that they can handle a South Carolina Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (LLR) investigation or request for an initial license on their own. Often, this is not the case. The Strom Law Firm, LLC, is happy to offer assistance and proudly defends South Carolina professional licensing complaints.

Above all, even if the investigator tells you that he or she simply wants to hear your side of the story so that he/she can close the case, you should proceed with caution. Remember, the investigator works for LLR, and is not necessarily looking out for your best interest. Therefore, don’t risk your professional livelihood or your reputation. Contact us today to hear how we can help.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
A Winning Team at Strom Law Firm!
John Alphin was great. We basically worked together for 22 months. Bakari Sellers was also on the team and together those 2 guys were fabulous. Won the case and I’m still a client of Strom law firm. Thank you and awesome law firm.

Strom Law Firm was really great and professional. I had a great experience with Mario as my attorney and his paralegal, Brian. These two are amazing, they worked very hard on my husband’s workman’s comp case and we were very pleased with the services and results 👍.
