License Defense For Nursing
Nursing License Defense
If you have questions about your nursing license or need help defending it, please call for a free legal consultation, (503) 232-9280.
If you've received a letter from the Oregon State Board of Nursing, outlining a complaint that has been filed against you, this could be the beginning of a legal process that has the potential to jeopardize your nursing career.
Although you may be tempted to go it alone, in all likelihood, you’ll receive a better outcome if you have an experienced nursing license defense attorneyat 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 are in trouble, we can help you through all stages of the nursing license defense process, including these:
- investigation by the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN)
- settlement or discipline
- administrative hearing
- Oregon Court of Appeals

"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."
