Driving Under the Influence

Driving while intoxicated is a serious charge for anyone. It can be all the more severe for a professional who relies on a clean record to keep his or her professional license. If you are charged with DUI in Texas, your state licensing board will initiate an investigation into your case to determine what licensing penalties should be brought against you. Having a license defense lawyer who understands how criminal law fits into professional licensing standards can be a major benefit for your defense.

DUI and Your Professional License

The effect of a DUI arrest on your professional license will depend on several different factors. You could be facing a temporary suspension or the permanent revocation of your license. The action taken by your licensing board may depend upon:

  • The type of professional license you possess
  • The regulations of your licensing board
  • Your criminal history
  • The circumstances of your criminal case
