Will I lose my professional license if I get convicted?
Hello, I am Tycha Kimbrough. If you're a professional with a license and you are arrested and subsequently convicted of a crime, you may be wondering whether you will lose your professional license? Well, it depends. It depends on when the crime that you're charged with and your industry standards. The Texas Occupational Code allows for licensing authorities to revoke as well as suspend one's professional license if they are convicted of a crime in addition to a suspension or revocation. If a person isn't even licensed yet, and they're convicted of a crime, this may prevent them from later on being able to obtain that professional license. If you need legal counsel, definitely give us a call. We're happy to help.
