  • Licensing applications and denials: There are specific requirements you must meet to attain your General Contractor’s license. The key to an approved application is a well put together application packet. If you do not meet the requirements or submit a subpar application packet, you risk having your license application denied. We can assist you in obtaining the required documentation and creating a diligent application packet.
  • Licensing renewals: To maintain your General Contractor license, all licensees must comply with post-licensing or continuing education requirements. Also, all licensees must pay the necessary renewal fees.  
  • Delinquent Licenses: Is your license status delinquent? The requirements above apply to delinquent license holders.  Let us help you get your license reinstated and get you back to work! We do not want you to go through this process alone. We can guide you through this process and can assist with difficulties that may arise.
  • Complaints/Administrative Complaints: You may find yourself on the wrong end of a complaint filed against your license with DBPR. Has DBPR issued an administrative complaint against your license? Many licensees ask: Should I ignore the complaint? Should I talk to the Department’s attorney? Should I accept the first settlement offer? Should I handle the situation alone? Or Why is this happening? Our firm can help guide you through answering these difficult questions. We understand this can be a difficult time, let us work on your behalf to pinpoint the issues and assist you throughout the complaint process. We will assist you with responding to the complaint and appear on your behalf for trial at the Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH). Your license is too important to risk any further disciplinary action. Howell, Buchan & Strong, Attorneys at Law can help you.
