Consequences for Professional Licenses
Your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)
Minor traffic offenses (driving without insurance or careless driving) will harm your right to drive for a living. Make sure you are represented early in the process for any traffic violation or a DWI. The Department of Public Safety has strict standards and a vast bureaucracy to wade through. An attorney retained early in the process can help save your right to drive. Jennifer Pradt has helped thousands of drivers throughout her career.
DHS and Health and Human Services
Day care workers, nurses, home health care aides, personal care attendants, teachers, psychologists, licensed social workers, and other professionals depend on their professional licenses to make a living. Attorney Jennifer Pradt can advise and defend professionals facing license revocations or disciplinary proceedings from alleged misconduct.
Many misdemeanors have consequences for your license. Make sure you have an attorney that can navigate the legal system and help you stay licensed. For nurses or PCAs, even a first time DWI or Disorderly Conduct can have negative consequences.
Don’t wait until investigators call. It’s essential that you begin defending your rights with an attorney.
