Godoy Law Office in Chicago provides assertive criminal DUI defense for health care professionals charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI). A medical professional who is convicted of DUI in Illinois can lose their license, job, career and reputation – and be sentenced to jail time. Doctors, nurses, chiropractors, dentists, dietitians, therapists and other healthcare industry professionals have much to lose when they are charged or convicted of DUI.
Licensed health care professionals in Illinois fall under the guidelines of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR), which can suspend licenses and invoke fines of $10,000 or more. The Medical Practice Act of 1987 (225 ILCS 60/), says that IDFPR may
“revoke, suspend, place on probation, reprimand, refuse to issue or renew, or take any other disciplinary or non-disciplinary action as the Department may deem proper.”
