Nursing License Defense

If you’ve received a letter from the Oregon State Board of Nursing, outlining a complaint that’s been filed against you, this could be the beginning of a legal process that has the potential to jeopardize your nursing career.

Although you might be tempted to go it alone, in all likelihood, you’ll receive a better outcome if you have an experienced nursing license defense attorney at your side.

Common nursing license violations range from practicing with an expired license to substance abuse, poor patient care, falsifying documents, criminal arrests, dishonesty, and fraud.

If you’re in trouble, we can help you through all stages of the nursing license defense process, including:

  • allegation
  • investigation by the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN)
  • settlement or discipline
  • administrative hearing
  • Oregon Court of Appeals

Testimonial

"I was hit by a nuisance attack to my nursing license and Kevin handled it beautifully. He guided me smoothly through the investigator’s interview and the Board’s interview. Nursing is my livelihood so I was pretty worried about what could happen. Kevin knew the process and knew the people so it turned out perfectly. I recommend him wholeheartedly. I hope I’ll never need him again, but if I did, I’d call him immediately. No question."
