Client Guide – How will this impact my nursing/teaching license?

Written by Reynolds Defense Firm

On April 3, 2022

We do one thing, and we do it very well. We specialize in representing good people facing DUI charges. Sometimes people call us for the exact things we can assist them with, and sometimes, they call us for legal help that is outside our DUI law specialty. Regardless of the reasons why people call our firm, bottom line, we know they need help. So, we do just that. We help them. If any situation falls outside the scope of things our team can handle, we have a list of referral partners who can help.

One common concern we hear often from the good people we represent, is what effect their DUI arrest will have on their professional license. To address this concern, we sat down with one of our associate attorneys, Anthony Li.

RDF: How will this impact my nursing or teaching license?

If you are subject to professional licensing requirements, it may be necessary for you to disclose the fact of your arrest, charge, or conviction to the licensing body, or to provide details about the case during any application for renewal.

While the fact of having been arrested, charged, or convicted may have an effect on professional licenses, this largely depends on the specific licensing body at issue, the nature of the charges, and whether your case results in a conviction.  For more information on the professional effects of being arrested, charged, or convicted of a DUII we recommend you consult with someone well-versed in the procedures and policies of your specific licensing body, and we are happy to recommend individuals who are qualified to assist you in that arena – just ask your attorney.

To learn more about whether or not you are required to let your employer know about your DUI arrest, visit our other blog. For more DUI FAQ’s, visit our website and continue reading through our ‘Client Guide.’

As always, we hope you never need to call us, but if you or a loved one has been arrested for DUI, contact us today, at (503) 549-4590to start getting questions answered about your unique situation.
