Why is it important for any Michigan-based healthcare provider — whether a physician, pharmacist, chiropractor, pain management specialist, nurse/nurse practitioner, or mental health professional— to turn to Chapman Law Group to handle criminal infractions like DUI, DWI, OWI, and accusations of domestic violence?
Because criminal charges can put your healthcare license in severe jeopardy. You could have your license suspended, even revoked, by the Board of Medicine, Board of Nursing, Board of Pharmacy, or other administrative board. The one thing you worked so hard to earn, the one thing that allows you to do what you do, will be blemished.
Yet, healthcare professionals don’t always take the professional licensing side of things into consideration when hiring a local, all-purpose lawyer — the kind who post ads on billboards and on TV saying they handle criminal law cases — to handle their DUI or related criminal case.
The healthcare licensing ramifications are huge; so many healthcare careers have been lost because these general attorneys would rather have their clients plead guilty, without comprehending what medical providers face on the healthcare licensing end of things if they do plead.
The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) and professional licensing boards — such as the state Board of Medicine, Board of Nursing, Board of Dentistry, Board of Pharmacy and Board of Chiropractic Medicine — see licensed health professionals with DUI/DWI/OWI offenses as risks to the public.
