Protect Your Professional License

Nearly all drivers realize their licenses may be at risk after a DUI arrest or conviction, but this is especially critical in the case of a commercial driver’s license.

Protect Your Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

If you need CDL legal protection in a DUI situation in the Chickasaw County area, contact me, defense attorney Gene Barton.

You may be justifiably worried about how you will continue to drive a truck for work or even a church bus as a volunteer after you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Perhaps you have never been charged with a crime before. As you may have already discovered, even the presence of legally prescribed drugs such as Lortab in your body can result in DUI charges. Whether it is a first-time arrest or an alleged repeat offense, the sooner you consult with me, the more options I may find to help preserve your CDL privileges.

Protect Your Nursing License Or Other Professional License

It may not be a commercial driver’s license that is at risk because of a criminal matter, but rather, your professional license as a nurse, anesthesiologist, medical doctor or any type of health care worker such as a physical therapist. If your license is up for renewal, you may need legal help if you have a conviction on your record to report.

The best way to protect your professional license is to defend yourself vigorously before a conviction goes on record. As a practicing Mississippi (MS) prosecutor and a defense lawyer with 40 years of experience, I am well-qualified to serve as your strong advocate.

Note: I cannot defend criminal cases in the city where I am a prosecutor, which is Okolona. I can defend cases in greater Chickasaw County and surrounding counties throughout Mississippi, as well as in federal court.

Contact Me To Learn How I Can Help

Even if you already have a conviction on record, contact me. I will help you review options for keeping your professional license if at all possible. Call 662-260-6646 or send an online inquiry to schedule a free consultation.
