Anyone can make a mistake and find themselves facing a criminal charge. For medical professionals, the stakes are especially high. In addition to potential fines and jail time, doctors, nurses, dentists, chiropractors and other health care professionals also must think about the affect a criminal conviction will have on their career.

- Driving under the influence (DUI) or other traffic violations
- Drug possession
- Domestic assault/battery
