Nursing License Defense Lawyers in Pennsylvania
Experienced Nursing License Defense Lawyers
Pennsylvania nurses must obtain specialized licenses to practice their craft. A criminal conviction, and in some cases even criminal charges, can cost nurses everything they worked so hard to obtain.
For instance, a conviction for driving under the influence charge (DUI) or drug possession could result in a suspension of your professional license. Allegations of a sex crime could lead to professional disciplinary proceedings. And some charges or convictions could result in complete forfeiture of your ability to practice as a nurse.
Make sure to hire experienced nurse licensing defense attorneys to advise you of your rights and your best course of action throughout the process.
