Professional and Occupational License Defense Lawyer
In Pennsylvania, certain Professions and Occupations require obtaining a license first before entering the Profession or Occupation. Obtaining these licenses can be challenging or impossible if you have a criminal record; you can also lose the license if convicted for certain crimes while active in the Profession or Occupation. In addition to criminal conviction challenges, violations of the Rules, Standards, and Procedures within your Profession or Occupation can risk the loss of your license or other penalties assessed before any licensing or disciplinary board.
A wide range of criminal convictions can impact Professional and Occupational licenses. Significant crimes/felonies such as Murder, Rape, Arson, Burglary, Robbery, and Kidnapping will negatively impact a license. Lesser crimes such as DUI, Drug Possession, Traffic Offenses, Summaries, and Misdemeanors relating to Minors, and Theft or Fraud can threaten your license.
Many Licensing Boards simply list lack of “Good Moral Character” or commission of “CRIMES OF MORAL TURPITUDE” will disqualify or lead to a suspension of one’s professional license.
Some Professional and Occupational Licenses in Pennsylvania qualify you as a “MANDATORY REPORTER” which brings added responsibility and oversight, as well as exposure to additional criminal sanctions for failure to comply.

Most Professions and Occupations requiring licenses in Pennsylvania have licensing boards and officials within Pennsylvania. The boards and officials may have yearly educational requirements, random inspections or audits, monthly/quarterly/annual performance requirements, and if applicable, facility standards. A Criminal Conviction or violation of the board requirements can result in your appearance before the board to answer to charges, citations, and accusations. If not handled properly, you risk the loss of your license, which will lead to an inability to work in your Profession or Occupation and lose your primary source of income. Not to mention wasting years of hard work, commitment, and money, as well as the collateral impact to your family, employees, and customers/clients.
