Lawyers for Nurses

You Worked Hard for Your Nursing License. We at Chapman Law Group Work Hard to Help You Keep It.

Your license as a nurse is everything. You’ve worked hard to earn it. You’ve put a lot of time and money into your education and training. But when a disciplinary, employment or criminal action is taken against you, your license is put in jeopardy. Our lawyers for nurses will fight aggressively to protect you from losing your license, having your career ruined and your freedom compromised.

Chapman Law Group has been representing nurses for 35 years throughout Florida and Michigan. We have assisted thousands of nurses in private practice, hospitals, and state and federal correctional facilities on such matters as:

  • Disciplinary actions: Suspensions, revocations, restrictions, administrative complaints, Board of Nursing and Administrative Law Judge hearings, investigations, appeals and modifications
  • Licensure issues: Denials, renewals issues, difficulty obtaining a license, reporting convictions
  • Criminal actions: DUI, drug diversion, prescription fraud, theft, assault
  • Impairment program matters: Health Professionals Recovery Program (HPRP)Intervention Project for Nurses (IPN)
  • Professional liability: Negligence
  • Correctional health care issues: Deliberate indifference, malpractice
  • Employment issues: Employment contract review, credentialing, termination, harassment claims, disciplinary action, retaliation
  • Business matters: Practice startup and acquisition, contract review

Our lawyers for nurses are dedicated to specific areas of health care law, including licensure, criminal matters and negligence. This allows our lawyers to gain a great deal of experience and knowledge of specific areas of law that impact nurses.

We know that most legal issues against nurses will have some effect on licensure and employment, and nurses can’t have one without the other. So our teams of criminal defense, negligence and licensure attorneys work together on each case to ensure the initial legal issues are handled in such a way as to minimize the negative impact on the nurse’s career. It’s this dedication to specific areas of health law and collaboration of lawyers that better protects nurses and allows for cost savings.


Chapman Law Group’s licensure lawyers for nurses assist hundreds of nurses yearly with disciplinary matters that threaten their license. Our attorneys represent nurses daily before the Board of Nursing, administrative courts, and state licensing departments (LARA, DOH). We have vast experience with such common disciplinary matters as:

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


Our negligence lawyers have significant experience defending nurses and physicians accused of negligence and malpractice in locations including Detroit and Miami. Our lawyers have also collaborated with many of the leading malpractice insurers to defend health professionals against malpractice actions.
