Professional Licensing and Administrative Hearings

Experienced Professional Licensing and Administrative Law Firm

There is much at stake should your professional license be challenged by a professional board and you should not go through the process alone. Our attorneys can help you understand your case and help you frame the best approach. We will apply our extensive experience in dealing with professional boards and administrative agencies to help you settle your case. We have a positive track record of substantially reducing disciplinary actions taken against professionals.

It is important to hire legal counsel to assist with professional licensing or administrative law matters. We have a high degree of knowledge and experience in dealing with the complex rules and procedures in administrative cases. Professionals are often unaware of the extent of their rights, the documents and information discoverable, and the rules and regulations applicable to their cases. Our attorneys will provide effective and streamlined strategy for presenting your case and obtaining a reasonable settlement, or prevailing at the administrative level.

We specialize in representing nurses facing complaints and potential discipline from the Arizona Board of Nursing. Our attorneys will quickly identify the issues in your case, advise you on steps you can take to mitigate discipline, communicate on your behalf with the Board of Nursing, negotiate settlement terms, and obtain positive results.

Our experience with professional nursing boards will give you an advantage in dealing with your disciplinary complaint. We will explain the steps the board will take to investigate your case and be your guide as you go through the process. We will listen to your side of the story and strategize the best approach to take given the unique circumstances of your situation.

    Responding to a Nursing Board Complaint 

    If you have received a complaint against your nursing license, you have a limited period of time to respond to the Board and state your position. Do not hesitate to contact our office and schedule a consultation so that we can begin assisting you immediately. In our experience, the Board appreciates nurses who respond promptly to complaints and maintain consistent positions from the start.  

    Allegations which may subject a nurse to discipline include the following:

    • Drug or alcohol intoxication or impairment
    • Errors in documentation
    • Incompetency or negligence
    • Criminal conviction
    • Failure to respond to a Board of Nursing complaint

    Do not fall behind when dealing with a disciplinary complaint. Early and thoughtful responses are rewarded with more reasonable disciplinary terms. Let us help you get back to what you do best: practicing nursing—without restrictions.
