The Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists governs civil engineers in the State of California. The Board has the right to suspend or revoke a civil engineering license if certain types of criminal convictions are made. The Board may also deny the issuance of a professional license based on a person’s criminal record.

If you or someone you know were arrested for driving under the influence in Southern California and you hold a civil engineering license, then you need to contact a qualified DUI defense attorney who can help protect your professional license from being suspended or revoked.


The Board governs the following professionals:

  • Civil Engineers
  • Structural Engineers
  • Geotechnical / Soil / Soils Engineers
  • Land Surveyors
  • Electrical Engineers
  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Geologists
  • Geophysicists

Any of the professionals listed above are required to report a criminal conviction that is considered to be substantially related to the qualifications, functions, and duties of a licensee. Hiring the right drunk driving defense lawyer can be essential to maintaining your professional licensing.


There are a number of factors to consider when deciding which attorney you should retain. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable with the representation you are receiving.
