We Represent Nurses Facing Disciplinary Matters

At the New York City law firm of Rivas Goldstein, LLP, our attorneys represent nurse practitioners (NPs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered professional nurses (RNs) in all types of licensing defense matters.

A nurse whose license is threatened by a New York State Education Department, Office of Professional Discipline, disciplinary proceeding should immediately seek out an attorney who understands the processes and personnel involved.

If you are contacted by an agency investigator, it is imperative that you seek representation immediately. Our lawyers have decades of combined experience assisting nurses, physicians and other medical practitioners with administrative licensing matters, and use that experience to defend nurses against the New York State Education Department's Office of Professions (OP).

Defense Against A Wide Range Of Alleged Misconduct

Our New York nurse licensing attorneys advocate for clients who face disciplinary actions because of misconduct allegations such as:

  • Unprofessional conduct
  • Failing to adequately maintain patient records
  • Drug or alcohol issues
  • Alleged drug diversion
  • Failing to maintain the proper standard of care
  • Criminal conviction

Having an experienced attorney who understands what is at stake can often be the difference between losing your nursing license and retaining it. Our lawyers provide a strong license defense to nurses at all stages of the complaint process, vigorously working toward positive outcomes.

Our clients are often able to keep their licenses because we demonstrate that the allegations were incorrect or unfounded, or that there were mitigating circumstances. We investigate the matter and identify colleagues and patients whose testimony will strengthen a client's case. We have also been successful in obtaining dismissals and lesser penalties, such as remedial education or fines.
