Raiser & Kenniff, PC is a premier criminal defense and license defense law firm. We’ve helped clients in cities all over the USA – Los Angeles, NYC, Austin, and more, protect their license. In some cases, a license defense issue can start as a simple issue of misconduct – but can escalate into a criminal matter. For example, one of our Los Angeles nurse license defense lawyers recently handled a case – where not only was there an issue of possible professional negligence, but it escalated into a criminal issue. It’s possible that something which threatens your license can remain an administrative issue, and not involve the authorities – depending on the type of crime that was committed.
For example, if you’re accused of diverting medicine – that can turn into both a professional and legal issue. If that medicine is found to be sold across state lines, now that can be a federal issue. In a situation like this, not only will your license be impacted – but you’ll also face investigations by the DEA, FBI, and other state and local agencies. This will be in addition to the fact the State Nursing Board will investigate your conduct, and suspend your license.
