Aggressively Defending Threats To Professional Licenses In Illinois

You have worked hard to obtain and maintain your professional license. For many professionals, their licenses are essential for their continued success. In Illinois, an arrest, criminal investigation or charge can threaten your career. Therefore, it is important to take any threats to your livelihood quite seriously.

A Criminal Charge Can Lead To The Loss Of Your Professional License

In Illinois, a high number of professions are regulated by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). Certain misdemeanor offenses and any type of felony offense — including a felony drunk driving charge — can cost you your license even if you are not convicted in a criminal court.

Whether your presence is requested by the IDFPR or you are required to appear in court because of a criminal matter, do not hesitate to contact an attorney at The Law Offices of Steven R. Roach. We are experienced with professional license defense matters and assist professionals throughout the state from our Chicago, Schaumburg and Wheaton office locations.

Common Violations And Potential Consequences

If you are arrested or facing a criminal charge, not only are you subject to prosecution by local, state or federal law enforcement agencies, the IDFPR has the authority to impose additional penalties, including:

  • Termination, revocation or suspension of your license
  • Monetary fines
  • Probation
  • Denial of your license application
  • Public reprimand and censure
  • Other disciplinary actions

Common violations that lead the IDFPR to remove a person’s license include:

Additionally, some license holders are required to self-report. Failure to report that you have been charged or convicted of a crime may lead to even worse consequences in certain professional industries, such as the medical and health care fields.
