Have you been charged with a crime or received a letter from the Alabama Board of Nursing concerning potential disciplinary action against your license? If so, you need to hire an attorney immediately because you do not want to say or do anything that could negatively affect your nursing career. An attorney will explain your options, discuss likely outcomes, and help protect your interests.
If I consult an attorney before I'm charged, doesn't that make me look guilty?
Any arrest including those for traffic offenses (DWI, DUI), drug offenses, and even misdemeanors can affect your ability to practice nursing. In Alabama, only arrests that do not result in convictions (or arrests that end with you being cleared) can be removed from your record, so whether you are accused of a violation of the Alabama Nurse Practice Act, the drug laws of the State of Alabama, a traffic offense, theft, or any other violation, you need to hire an attorney right away.
You will look guilty to the public, but not to the Alabama Board of Nursing or the prosecutor's office. The Board and prosecutors know that you are not a legal professional and that it is in your best interest to hire an attorney. You may need to seek legal counsel if you are aware of an investigation or receive a subpoena to testify in a case, even if you are not the target and have done nothing wrong. You cannot predict the future and what may happen, so it is best if you are guided by an experienced and knowledgeable nursing defense attorney.
