Overcoming Adversity: Personal Stories

We’ve worked with many nurses who have regained their licenses over the years. While the process may not always be instant, we wanted to share these with you to give you hope. If you’re facing a current legal challenge regarding your nursing license, give us a call, and we’d be happy to help you. 

 Long Process Made Quick

“Thank you! Nicole was the greatest! I was in a pickle and she got me out of it real quick! After talking to a few lawyers and getting nowhere, I discovered her. What should’ve been a long process got resolved quickly and promptly! She was there every step of the way and always got back to me super quick with any questions I had! 10/10 recommend!” – Daniel

Complete Dismissal of Case

“Exceeded expectations. I came to meet Ian after dealing with a complaint from 2017. The BVNPT had decided to make a formal accusation in 2021. Ian guided me through each and every step of this anxiety-filled situation and answered every question and concern I had with honesty, professionalism, and kindness. His knowledge of the laws and attention to detail proved invaluable as he was able to secure a complete dismissal of my case with no marks to my license and no costs to pay. His inspiration for standing up and fighting for what you believe in gave me the strength to do just that, and my personal and professional integrity was kept intact. Ian is an attorney who truly believes in justice and will go above and beyond to make sure his clients know he is fighting for them and will not back down. He truly exceeded my expectations, and I am forever grateful.” – Rhonda

Supportive Environment

“Super supportive. Going through an accusation on your license is possibly the most stressful thing that can happen in your career. It almost killed mine. But I know for a fact I would not have gotten through it without the support and professional assistance of Nicole Valentine. Nicole went above and beyond for me, learning the delicacies and language of my specialty; a very arduous task, indeed. The documents Nicole provided in my defense were top-notch, and I can honestly say if I had not had Nicole as my lawyer, I would not still be a practicing nurse today because this entire process would have driven me to quit. But she stood by me and defended me, and she made it possible for me to continue to be the best nurse I can be for my patients. I hate that nurses are dragged through the mud often to placate systems or physicians, but if the system gets you and you need support, don’t think twice. Hire Nicole Valentine.” – Anonymous
