What is Licensing?

Whether you are a doctor, dentist, insurance agent or a licensed taxi driver, your career could be at stake if you are not represented by a lawyer with the necessary skills and experience to secure your freedom and reputation. A compassionate San Francisco criminal defense lawyer has the skills and techniques necessary to resolve the problems that may be threatening your license. Even lawyers sometimes face trouble that could put their professional license at stake. If you have a professional or occupational license in the state of California and are convicted of a crime, your life will be impacted substantially. Our San Francisco criminal defense attorneys will evaluate your case in order to determine a swift and effective course of action.

If you are facing licensing issues or professional discipline in California and your professional license is in jeopardy, you need an experienced San Francisco attorney on your side. Depending on the offense committed, you could lose your license. We believe that everyone deserves a second chance. At Bay Area Criminal Lawyers, PC, our team of skilled San Francisco criminal defense lawyers will work aggressively to protect your rights and reputation.

You might assume that if you plead guilty you will not be convicted of a crime. No matter how others try to convince you that you should plead guilty, a dedicated San Francisco criminal defense attorney skilled in licensing issues can protect your career and help prevent the loss of your license. If you are convicted of a criminal offense, the legal system will make certain that the licensing authority where you obtained your license is notified. In some cases, you may be required to notify the licensing yourself. Why risk losing your career when our San Francisco criminal defense lawyers will help protect your future?

Licensing authorities are often harsh and show little lenience when it comes to those who are licensed committing crimes. Often, the seriousness of the crime can be diminished when it can be proven that there were mitigating circumstances during a disciplinary hearing. An experienced San Francisco criminal defense lawyer knows that it takes a professional with vast expertise and knowledge in criminal defense law to provide the necessary evidence so that a license authority will offer a bit of lenience where your license is concerned.

Doctors, nurses and dentists are particularly susceptible to issues that threaten their license. Depending upon the type of crime committed, a nurse may no longer be allowed to be around controlled substances; a pharmacist found guilty of trafficking drugs is likely to lose his/her license. At Bay Area Criminal Lawyers, PC, our highly capable San Francisco criminal defense attorneys have what it takes to protect your future and your career. Call us for a free consultation today.
