Don’t Leave Your Client’s License Behind Bars

When defending a licensed professional of any stripe in a criminal investigation or lawsuit, it is important that the defense attorney consider the above prior to taking any action in the client’s defense. That is because many licensed professionals’ livelihoods are often reliant upon maintaining a current, unrestricted license.

However, a criminal conviction or plea bargain can jeopardize the professional’s license. This is the case whether the crime alleged is within his or her field of practice or is something seemingly unrelated—such as common crimes like driving while intoxicated, possession of illegal substances, theft, or domestic abuse. That is because the scope of whether a crime is substantially related to the underlying profession is often much wider than could ever be reasonably anticipated.
