A DUI Could Threaten Your Professional License

You worked hard for your professional license, whether you are a pilot, a truck driver, a nurse or one of any number of other professionals. If you have been charged with a DUI, OWI or DWI, your license may be at risk. Not only are you facing the legal consequences of your drunk driving charge, but your career may now be at stake. As a former prosecuting attorney, I know how to help you protect your license and your livelihood. Contact me at Hansen Law Offices, PLLC, for a free consultation.

Different licensing boards have their own regulations, but many require annual reporting. Those reports often ask about criminal charges and even arrests, no matter the outcome. The important thing to remember is that the board expects you to know and follow the reporting rules for your profession.

The Importance of a Strong DUI Defense

When your professional license is in danger, you have more to lose than a simple fine or even a few days in jail. You need a strong defense. Possible defenses to a DUI case include:

  • Challenging the field sobriety test or blood alcohol test
  • Arguing the police lacked probable cause
  • Fighting for a reduced penalty
  • Challenging the Miranda warning you received

As your lawyer, I can help you with your communication to your licensing board. In some circumstances, you may be able to explain mitigating factors, or explain that charges were dismissed or lowered.
