Professional License Defense Attorney

2 Nurses who might need a professional license defense attorney You worked very hard to become a nurse, and your role is critical in the lives of the patients you serve. Along the way, you made sure to pass through all the requirements necessary to be able to get to work and help those who need it most. Still things can and do happen and – be it through complaints others file with the state licensing boards, discipline for an on-duty violation or for an off-hours incident like a DUI – you may find your professional license on the line. If this has happened to you, then you have no time to waste in obtaining the help of a nurse attorney in Sacramento. There are several reasons that this should be your first step in response to this situation.

If you’ve already received notification that your license is being investigated by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) or Board of Licensed Vocational Nursing, you are probably panicking, as these notices are obviously intimidating. Having your professional license disciplined can be devastating to your career but losing your license can devastate your entire way of life. A nurse attorney in Sacramento can help you protect your legal rights.

In conjunction with RN Guardian, Goyette, Ruano & Thompson’s professional license defense lawyers have advised thousands of Nurses and LVNs, maintaining a staggering record of 98% license retention.

Our nursing license defense lawyers have been successful in having entire cases dismissed by the BRN, but we also help with the smaller steps along the way including: disclosures of DUI, representing you during your investigation, applications for licenses for new nursing school grads, responding to formal accusations, appealing denials of licenses, petitions for reinstatements of your nursing license, hearings and more.

RN DUI Attorney Experience

Our License Defense Lawyers have a 100% success rate in defending Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs) for first time DUI’s. Just like when a complaint is filed, success can hinge on acting immediately if you’ve been arrested on suspicion of DUI by seeking the help of a attorney specializing in representing nurses in Sacramento, or experienced to serve state-wide like GRT. Giving in to the stress of the situation and doing nothing, even for a short amount of time, can be devastating to your position.

Our license defense lawyers have been successful in negotiating settlements; getting probation in lieu of revocation or suspension of licenses for issues like diversion of medication, gross negligence, incompetence, failed drug tests and more.
