OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS AND DUI

 

The Board Of Occupational Therapy oversees licensure and discipline for Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapist Assistants.

An Applicant for licensure and a Licensee seeking renewal of their license must disclose any Misdemeanor convictions including DUI to the Board.

 

Business & Professions Code (B&P)§490,with specified exceptions, enables any licensing board to discipline a licensee who has been convicted of a crime that is “substantially related to the qualifications, functions, or duties of the business or profession for which the license was issued.”

Business & Professions Code §480 authorizes licensing boards to deny a license to an applicant based upon a conviction of a crime. A “no contest” plea or expungement order pursuant to Penal Code §1203.4 does not relieve a licensee from discipline or prevent denial of a license due to a conviction.

If you are an Occupational Therapist, or intend to seek licensure through the California Board of Occupational Therapists, and you have a pending DUI or other misdemeanor and/or felony charge, you need a qualified attorney who not only specializes in DUI defense, but also has the necessary training, experience and qualifications to represent you before the California Board of Occupational Therapists.

Your best chance to avoid license discipline by the California Board of Occupational Therapists is to have the best qualified lawyer to represent you for your DUI case.  At the Law Office of Barry T. Simons you can be assured of the strongest commitment to the defense of your DUI charge coupled with experienced representation before the Board if necessary.  Our goal is to avoid discipline by avoiding a conviction.
