Five Star Review: Outstanding Support

April 6, 2023

The client referral review expresses the desire to help other nurses who have experienced similar situations and to prevent others from facing similar challenges. The writer shares their own experience of being blindsided by the board and district attorney and not being taught what to do in the event of any kind of possible reprimand against their nursing license. According to the writer, providing education to nursing students about how to handle such situations can decrease the likelihood of license revocation or denial. The writer’s passion for nursing and career is evident, and they express a willingness to help others in Southern California.

I want to help other nurses facing the same situation I had to face. I was blindsided by the board and the district attorney who pretended to have my best interest at heart. I want to help nurses that have been in my shoes prevent being in my shoes to begin with. Nursing schools do not show you or teach you what to do in the event of any kind of possible reprimand against your license. They show you what happens when a complaint is filed but do not show you what to do after. I believe that education with nursing students will not only help them if any situation were to arise, but will help decrease incidences of license revocation or denial. I would like to help in any way I can, I have been dealing with issues with the board since 2016 for a DUI in 2012. I wish someone would have informed me of the many repercussions when I surrendered my nursing license. Thanks to Nicole Valentine I was removed from the exclusion list (Medi-cal) and am able to work in the state of California. I have been licensed since 2003 as an LVN. I worked really hard to get my license initially and to get it back. Nursing has been my passion and career since I was 17 years old and I have seen unfair treatment of wonderful nurses all because they were not well informed. I have considered obtaining a law degree just for that sole purpose. If there is any way I can help in Southern California, I am more than happy to help.

Five Star Review: Outstanding Support

Our client required a letter of consequence for her case. She reached out to us for support and guidance. Nicole helped her immediately by blocking out the time necessary to compose a detailed letter that supplied essential details to support her case. She was pleased with the outcome and recommended Nicole 110%.

Five Star Review: BRN Representation

September 20, 2020

When you are under investigation due to an accusation or complaint filed against you, it’s crucial to have a team of legal experts to guide you through the entire process. Last year a client of ours received a letter from the BRN that he was under investigation due to a work incident. Nicole was available to answer questions and provide the advice needed to proceed. Our client mentioned that she walked him through each step and found she was very knowledgeable about the BRN investigators and the BRN process. The case was closed without intervention or any disciplinary action. Our client was pleased with the results and professionalism Nicole demonstrated throughout the entire process.

BRN investigations can be stressful and overwhelming, and our lawyers provide the ultimate support to ease our client’s stress by preparing them for what’s to come during the BRN investigation. During this process, it’s crucial to have representation from the beginning because our legal professionals will provide legal advice and what to do during each step of the investigation. In this case, our client was prepared and ready to take on the BRN process with Nicole’s help and expertise. Our client was happy to hear that his case was closed without intervention and was satisfied with the support and advice from Nicole and the result. If you are going through a similar situation, reach out to us immediately. It’s not ideal to face the BRN alone. There are a lot of different factors to know during this process, and we are here to save your license and get the results you want.

Five Star Review: Reduced Conditions

“I am leaving this review for anyone out there who needs an attorney that will help do everything in her power to achieve the best outcome possible! I am so grateful and overly excited that Nicole was able to get me a public reproval!!! I was so afraid I was going to be put on probation for 3 years…. but having Nicole as my lawyer, that didn’t happen! She was professional, sympathetic, understanding, knowledgeable, caring, and available to talk/always calls back. Nicole also has a great sense of humor, and kept me laughing, especially at times when I really needed it! I highly recommend Nicole to anyone and everyone! Nicole- I can not thank you enough for everything! You have forever changed my life!”
