A drunk in public charge is not only embarrassing, it can have a long-term impact on your professional standing. Public intoxication is a misdemeanor, which means it has to be disclosed to future employers. A conviction can also impact your ability to qualify for professional licenses, like a nursing certificate or commercial driving license. Professional legal representation can help you mitigate the damage and perhaps lessen the impact of a conviction on your professional and personal future.
