Health Care Professional

Facing DUI Charges

If you are a doctor, nurse or health care professional facing DUI charges for drunk or drugged driving, you are faced with the prospect of professional discipline from the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs upon conviction of the underlying criminal offense. Consequently, any doctor, nurse or health care professional facing DUI / OWI charges would be well advised to seek the counsel of an experienced Michigan DUI lawyer who can guide them through the complexities of the criminal and regulatory process.

At Duke Law Group, we have successfully advocated for and represented many doctor, nurses and health care professionals facing DUI / OWI drunk driving charges who sought sound and effective legal advice in preserving their livelihood and professional standing in the face of criminal prosecution for an alcohol or drug related traffic offense.

We only accept a limited number of cases so that we can give each client’s case the time and attention it deserves.

In Michigan, health care professionals, as expansively defined under the Public Health Code, face a mandatory reporting obligation to the appropriate licensing board upon conviction of qualifying offenses. At Duke Law Group, if you are a health care professional facing DUI charges, we will discuss with you all reporting requirements and how to minimize the impact of the underlying criminal case on your professional livelihood. For example, we will review the scope of the Health Professionals Recovery Program (HPRP) and discuss how participation in the program may be used to mitigate damage to your career. The HPRP is a confidential program that seeks to encourage doctor, nurses and health care professionals to engage in pre-emptive treatment before their impairment harms a patient or causes career damage through regulatory or disciplinary action.

IF YOU ARE A DOCTOR, NURSE OR HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONAL FACING DUI CHARGES, HIRE AN EXPERIENCED LAWYER TO DEFEND YOUR CASE!

It is important to keep in mind that if you are a doctor, nurse or health care professional facing DUI charges for drunk or drugged driving, you can take steps, with the assistance of qualified counsel, to minimize the impact of prosecution and conviction on their professional standing and careers.
