Applying for a License with a Criminal History

The requirements for receiving a professional license can be particularly strict when it comes to approving those who have unique pasts. Unfortunately, even a minor criminal offense lurking in your past could hurt your chances of becoming a licensed physician, nurse, or other professional. At the Leichter Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping those who are qualified to receive a license but have a past that may prevent them from being approved by a state licensing board.

Representing Your Case

Our Texas professional license lawyers understand how important the approval of your license application is for your livelihood and your career. If you have a criminal offense in your past, you may be concerned that your license application will be denied. We at the Leichter Law Firm can help you fight for the licensure you need if you have a history of:

  • DUI/DWI
  • Alcohol or drug offenses
  • Petty theft
  • Other misdemeanor offenses


If you have a criminal record, you likely know that a single event in your past can limit your current and future opportunities. When it comes to license applications, the most important point to address is that you have been rehabilitated since your conviction and do not present a risk to patients, coworkers, or others. Our Texas license application lawyers can help you build your case to show that you are prepared to work as a capable, responsible licensed professional within your field.
