We have successfully represented clients before various departments, boards and bureaus, in order to help defend & restore their professional licenses.
We’re proud to have represented many clients over the years, successfully defending them against the loss of their professional licenses and also petitioning for license reinstatement. Here are a sample of client reviews we’ve received recently:
Thank you to Lucy and her Crew
“I wanted to start by introducing my situation, I had already gone through the Administration process and about to have my license probated by the courts and probably going to lose my business altogether. Not only was I ashamed and disheartened but I was very much exhausted and had completely given into the despair and guilt. I had heard of petitions to file for modifications in the past, but these were a lost cause and pretty much a relic of someones cruel joke on the real world. However My Disciplinary order had no effect on Lucy or her team. They went to work and told me to sit back and enjoy the show (I did not have to move a muscle) these gals took it to them and not only did I receive a modification, we found so many errors and mistakes that the professional licensing board had to reinstate my license altogether. AMAZING!!!!!! Thank you Lucy for everything.”
“I needed legal support for a case dealing with the Board of Psychology (BOP). A year after I had made a formal sexual harassment claim against my supervisor, I received an aggressive letter from my past employers claiming I had been deceitful regarding a registration issue during my tenure. This claim was aggressive and felt retaliatory in nature. From my first phone call with Lucy, I felt she had my back. Her experience with licensing boards was incredibly helpful during my legal battle. She took on the responsibility of communicating with the BOP which lessened my day-to-day anxiety immensely.
I was promptly updated after each contact she had on my behalf. She was happy to communicate via cell phone, office phone and email which made her accessible during emergencies or time-sensitive matters. During an intensive 2.5 hour interview that was a major determining factor in the outcome of my case, Lucy was diligent in pointing out holes in my opponents claims and speaking on my behalf when I was too overcome with emotion to do so myself. She was tough and thorough in the interview, leaving no stone unturned. I would not have wanted to be on the other side of the table. I would have been completely lost and overwhelmed had I not had her solid support during that experience.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of working with Lucy was dealing with her staff. Much of my contact was through them and I was consistently impressed with the level of care and detail to attention they showed. They answered endless calls and emails from me and never once acted impatient or annoyed. It made my experience during this stressful time much easier to handle. In the end, we won my case and no evidence was found to support the claim made against me. It was a long process that ended in the best way possible. I am thankful for the legal support that helped me move on with my life and my career.”

Back in the Swing of Things
“My family and I own, manage and operate a thriving business in upscale San Francisco. Recently I was put in the predicament of having to shut down my 10 year operation due to the fact that my license was about to be revoked, for what we believed to be a competitor wanting to fuse us out of the market share, however we contacted Lucy who after 14 days of going back and forth on our behalf was able to keep us in business. I really believe that it was her and not circumstance. She fought hard for us!! Thank you Lucy. BTW- Lucy worked 14 days and still gave us pricing based on her expected 5 day commitment.”

“I received an Accusation on my professional license. The Board wanted to revoke my license. When I initially talked to Lucy, I knew that she was going to be my best advocate. Lucy was so supportive during this stressful time in my life. I was so scared of losing my license, my livelihood. I am thankful that my case ultimately settled and I got to keep my license. I highly recommend Lucy McAllister if you want someone who will believe in you and fight for you. Note: she can help you anywhere you live, as long as your license is in CA! Thank you, Lucy!!”

“I had a few questions that I needed answered but didn’t really know what my options were or whether it was really worth it to hire an attorney. I contacted Lucy and she was great. She really cared about my case and took the time to go over all possible options with me.
I had sooo many questions but she was patient with me and continued to assist me until I was comfortable and I had all my questions answered :). So glad I gave her a call!”
