Character and Fitness w/incident

Postby jillyaz1 » Fri Jun 30, 2017 1:47 pm

Does anyone have any experience with going through Character and Fitness with a fairly recent misdemeanor DUI? No other criminal or financial missteps other than this really stupid mistake. Should I look into hiring an ethics attorney? What proactive steps should I take other than paying fines/fees and completing counseling? I don't have a history of substance abuse other than this isolated instance. Have applied for the bar but have not heard yet if or when I'm going to have an informal/formal hearing. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

This is going to be state specific.
Probably worth researching on your own/contacting a lawyer in your state that handles these issues.
