The majority of nurses work and practice as at-will employees. Therefore the legal services department of your employer exists to service the needs of the HCO not the individual employees. As a nurse if you want or need legal advice, you should consult with a nursing law, nursing practice, or licensure defense attorney.
The Law Office of LaTonia Denise Wright, LPA offers appointments. (telephone or in-person) and legal consultations to nurses in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
Why do you charge for legal consultations?
Payment of the fee establishes an attorney-client relationship between attorney and the nurse. In the context of a legal consultation, although this is one-time meeting between attorney and the nurse, an attorney client relationship is established, the nurse receives counseling and advise on a particular matter, and attorney is paid for providing a valuable service to individual nurses.
On average, Ms. Wright has 5 to 30 legal, workplace, or career consultations each and every month with LPNs, RN, APRNs, nursing students, or NCLEX-Applicants who need legal information, advice, and counseling on a variety of situations ranging from professional boundaries to scope of practice to criminal issues to State Nursing Board investigations to probationary and suspended license questions.
