FCC Licensure & Authorizations Practice

Maldonado Law has practiced before the FCC in obtaining telecommunication and broadcast licenses, renewals, special temporary authority (STAs), transfers (pro forma and as a part of acquisition), assignments and surrenders for over twenty years. In that time, the firm has interfaced with various bureaus of the Commission including the International Bureau, Media Bureau (Audio, Visual, and Engineering Divisions), Wireless Bureau (Mobility and Broadband Divisions) as well as the Enforcement Bureau to clear licensure for our clients and their business and transactions before the Commission. Maldonado Law assisted a wide array of clients in the communications and media sectors both large and small. We have handled both complex licensing scenarios as well as simple new entrant applications. Maldonado Law takes pride in the fact that we are an alternative for our clients to the large law firms that may be out of reach or unaffordable to some. Our fee structures are straightforward and reasonable based upon the nature of the work and competitive legal service offerings throughout the county. We also maintain a sliding-scale for non-profit community radio broadcasters and small-sized upstarts.

We invite you to review our practice specific areas of experience for FCC licensing. This includes FCC International 214 Licensure; FCC Class A Television, Television translator, and LPTV station license renewals; FCC FM & AM licensure and renewals; FCC LPFM licensure and renewals; and FCC VSAT licensure for data and commercial use pages for more information specific to your industry and FCC licensing needs. Also, should your radio broadcast station be near a renewal window, and you have a past NAL or NOV pending from the Commission, please see our FCC Investigations – FCC Enforcement Bureau, and FCC Investigations – Field Office Violations pages for helpful information on how we can help resolve those issues and secure your license renewal.
