Individuals who provide professional services to others are generally required to act in a “professional” manner that aligns with their chosen field. Professional behavior is usually viewed as being ethical and in the best interests of clients, patients, or customers, as well as the public good. Professional misconduct is seen as negligent; improper; harmful to the safety, health, or welfare of others; or unlawful. Accusations of professional misconduct can lead to criminal arrests and charges that can ruin reputations, lead to serious criminal consequences, and result in the loss of one’s professional license.
Anyone, from an investment counselor to a police officer to a teacher, can be accused of misconduct that requires the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
