Representation For Engineering Professionals

Are you in need of legal assistance for applying for a professional engineer or design firm license? Do you have questions concerning the status of your license or do you need to renew it? Zimmerman Law Offices can help you navigate your case whether you need support with applying for a license or whether you need support with defending the license you have.

Assistance In Applying For A License

Within the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR), the Division of Professional Regulation ensures that professional licensure qualifications are properly evaluated, and that regulations are accurately applied and vigorously enforced. You can become licensed after passing an examination, or by endorsement if you hold an unexpired license to practice engineering in another state. If you need assistance applying for your license, attorney Thomas Zimmerman will work diligently to navigate your case.

Defense When You Need It

If you have been falsely accused of negligence or improperly affixing your signature or seal to plans or documents, you need an experienced lawyer who has experience managing a case like yours.

Professional Engineer Denied Licensure for Lack of Experience

The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) denied a man’s application to become a licensed professional engineer because he did not have the required number of years of experience after graduating from college and prior to taking the Principles and Practice of Engineering (PPE) examination. We appealed the IDFPR’s decision to the circuit court, and argued that the IDFPR had not identified the factual basis for its decision to disregard certain experience that could not be verified. The circuit court agreed, and remanded the matter back to the IDFPR with an order that the IDFPR hold a formal hearing regarding the applicant’s experience. We won on remand, and the IDFPR issued the license.
