Chapman Law Group has teams of attorneys dedicated to certain areas of health care law, including licensure, criminal and negligence. This allows our lawyers to gain a great deal of experience and knowledge of specific areas of law that impact nurses. Given that most legal issues against nurses will have some effect on licensure and employment, our teams of criminal defense, negligence and licensure lawyers work together on each case to ensure that the initial legal issues are handled in such a way as to minimize the negative impact on your career. We believe this dedication to specific areas of health law and collaboration of our lawyers will better protect you.

Licensure

As a nurse, we know that you invest a significant amount of time and money into your education and training and rely on your professional license to earn a living. When a disciplinary, employment or criminal action is taken against a nurse, it jeopardizes your license. Therefore, our attorneys fight aggressively to help you protect your license, career and freedom.

Our licensure attorneys assist hundreds of nurses yearly with disciplinary matters that threaten their license and represent nurses daily before the nursing boards, administrative courts and state licensing departments (LARA, DOH, ODH). Our attorneys have significant experience with common disciplinary matters, including:

Our licensure attorneys also have experience handling more complex disciplinary actions against nurses, such as criminal prescription fraud and drug distribution charges. We also help nurses who have difficulty obtaining or renewing a nursing license. Often these issues are related to prior criminal convictions, disciplinary action or relinquishment.

Criminal Defense

Our criminal defense lawyers are unique in that they only represent health care providers. Their combined knowledge and experience in criminal law and health care law allows them to handle the most complex cases against nurses. Our attorneys represent nurses facing felony charges related to health care, such as drug trafficking, drug diversion, criminal health care fraud and sexual misconduct involving a patient(s). We also defend against DUI, assault, shoplifting and other criminal charges that can threaten a health professional’s medical license, DEA Registration and CMS enrollment.
