Professionals Charged With Crimes
Many of the individuals prosecuted for white collar crimes hold professional licenses. White collar defense lawyers represent many types of professionals such as healthcare professionals, lawyers and real-estate professionals. If you are a professional, a felony conviction will almost certainly result in the loss of your license. At the very least your professional board will suspend your professional license.
If your white collar defense attorney is not experienced in appearing before your particular licensing board, it is strongly advised that you and your lawyer consult with such counsel as soon as possible. If you are a lawyer facing criminal charges, it is highly likely that your state bar defense attorney will be well-versed in state bar procedures and professional ethics as it relates to your particular criminal action and its potential consequences.
