Pharmacists in California are regulated by the California Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The board is usually concerned with convictions of crimes that are substantially related to the qualifications, functions and duties of the licensee. While a felony conviction for a pharmacist and trigger an automatic license suspension, a misdemeanor may not have any repercussions for the licensee. Understanding your rights is essential to protecting your professional license. The board is, at times, given broad discretion in disciplining licensees convicted of crimes. Our team of experienced DUI defense lawyers will help you understand your rights and the compulsory reporting requirements for all pharmacists.
Every member of our DUI defense team will help you fight any charges against you through the criminal court or through the California Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Many DUI cases are not crimes that are substantially related to the qualifications, functions or duties of pharmacists. We will help you prove your case to the licensing board and stop any action against your right to practice. No matter what the circumstances of your case, you need to consult a leading DUI defense lawyer immediately after arrest. Remember, in addition to any criminal proceedings you have only ten calendar days from the date of arrest to request an administrative per se hearing through the DMV. Call our offices today.
