Can a DUI affect a teacher and their credentials? What to do if you are arrested for a DUI in San Diego county? Dui Defense Attorney Lawyer

Unintended Consequences.  Two words that are tied with a DUI arrest here in San Diego county (and California).  Most people with their first DUI realize when they get out how far reaching a DUI conviction can be.  License suspension, custody, and impacting a job.  This includes professionals who have a license with the state.  I cannot tell you how many nurses and teachers find themselves facing a DUI.  The key is to get the best resolution you can in your case before you bring the matter to the licensing agency.  To do this the key is to be proactive and choose an attorney who has experience to help you.  As a son of a teacher (mom) and being a former educator myself (I almost chose to be a HS history teacher and varsity football coach as a career) teachers are near and dear to my heart.  I wanted to talk a bit about teachers and DUI cases.
