As a California licensed professional, receiving a DUI can add many complications to your career. Not only will you be dealing with criminal charges, but you will also have to face your professional licensing board. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you could lose your license.
Several of our clients were dealing with the impacts of a DUI conviction. This is how our team of professional license defense attorneys saved their careers.
Drinking and Driving
In 2019, the California Highway Patrol arrested over seven thousand people under the influence. Our client was one of these drivers. After attending a holiday event, he was pulled over and arrested for a DUI. Not only did he have to spend the night in jail and have his driver’s license suspended, but he also had to report his conviction to his licensing board. Our lead attorney, Miranda McCroskey, and our team of license defense attorneys stepped in to help him prepare for his administrative hearing and protect his professional license.
“Miranda went above and beyond to help resolve my case. She was attentive, hard-working, and extremely thorough from our initial consultation.” – Client
As a result of our team’s work, this client did not receive harsh disciplinary action and was able to keep his license.

Recreational Marijuana Use
Although marijuana is legal in California, driving while under the influence is still a crime. One of our nursing clients recently consumed cannabis and then got behind the wheel. While driving, a police officer pulled her over and brought her in for a DUI. Knowing that the California Board of Registered Nursing does not take DUI convictions lightly, she contacted our team right away. We helped her prepare her documentation to share with her licensing board and prepped for a potential hearing for her case.
“Miranda and her team are very professional and responsive. They patiently worked with us until the case was resolved.” – Client
Throughout the entire length of her investigation with the nursing board, our team took care of every request. As a result, she attends a diversion program but was able to keep her license.
