The Case of Lisa B.


The Board of Nursing (BON) instituted proceedings against my client’s license for making a false statement on her original application (made decades ago) related to a DWI case and for failing to report a later criminal charge that was ultimately dismissed.

Case Overview

I was able to get the dismissed case expunged from her record, and I presented the BON with a history of DWI law (there was a time you could get deferred adjudication for a DWI) which supported my client's assertion that she wasn't hiding anything but was simply mistaken as to the outcome of her old case. The BON referred my client to an education course and took no further action against her nursing license.

Outcome: Not Guilty
