While most people realize that a conviction for a DUI in California can result in fines, potential jail time and other penalties, many do not know that it can also affect their professional license. For nurses, doctors, real estate agents, insurance brokers, and the like, there are certain consequences involved.

DUIs for Doctors and Nurses

For nurses, a single DUI can result in the discipline of your license along with strict probation. The period of probation may require random bodily fluid tests, abstaining from all alcohol and drug use, and attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. The same is true if a doctor is facing a second or subsequent misdemeanor DUI or it is their first felony DUI.

Having a DUI on record can also inhibit healthcare professionals from being able to be approved MediCare or MediCal providers. DUIs can also keep nurses and doctors from finding employment. If you are medical professional facing charges for a DUI, having an attorney defend these types of cases before the California Board of Registered Nursing and other medical boards, you may be able to have disciplinary actions appealed.

DUIs for Insurance Brokers and Real Estate Agents

The Department of Insurance and the Department of Real Estate both argue that receiving a DUI reflects on the agent's character and overall judgement. As such, DUIs have often been linked to disciplinary action, including completely denying or revoking licenses in some cases. If you are currently in this field or are seeking to obtain a license, get the defense you need from your DUI. Allow a qualified Orange County DUI lawyer to protect your rights and your career.
