Criminal Convictions and License Defense

If you are a licensed professional and have recently been convicted of a crime, you are likely facing the risk of losing your license. Professional licensing boards, including the Texas Medical Board, typically classify a criminal conviction as grounds for license suspension or revocation. Depending on the circumstances, however, you may be able to save your licensing privileges.
