Felony Conviction and Your License
The impact of a felony conviction on your professional license status can be significant. Such an offense may even put you at risk of having your license permanently revoked. Few professionals consider the ramifications of a felony offense because they do not see themselves ever being in such a precarious situation.

Types of Felonies
A felony offense is a severe charge that often carries heavy penalties, including prison time, if you are convicted. A number of different crimes can qualify as a felony in Texas, including:
- Bribery (either bribing or accepting a bribe)
- Federal drug offenses
- Tax crimes
In addition to the penalties issued by the court, you may also face a number of licensing penalties from your state professional licensing board. Many licensing agencies do not tolerate a felony conviction and may see it as grounds to suspend or revoke your license altogether.
However, with a proper legal defense, it may be possible to reduce the penalties against you even if you are convicted of such a charge. An experienced license defense attorney can negotiate with board officials to seek alternatives to a revoked license so that your practice and your career are preserved.
