Drug and Alcohol Complaint Defense Before Missouri Board of Nursing

The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley protects the licenses of nurses who have received a complaint involving drug or alcohol use, improper possession of drugs or narcotics or allegations of drug diversion. Whether you have been charged or convicted of DWI or accused of diversion of prescription medication, attorney Kevin J. Dolley has the ability to defend against such charges levied by the Missouri Board of Nursing. Such defense includes representation before the Administrative Hearing Commission and before the Missouri Board of Nursing. Whether you have received notice of a drug or alcohol complaint, failed a drug test or accused of a probation violation, Mr. Dolley has significant experience defending such cases.

Defending Nurses in Chemical Dependency Cases

The firm's involvement in each nurse's case is different. Representation may involve the review of a proposed settlement agreement, probation violation defense or successfully defending against a Complaint pending before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission.

Mr. Dolley handles cases in which there are significant questions as to whether a drug or alcohol complaint rises to the level of a violation of the Nursing Practices Act, to cases involving significant potential criminal liability, to cases involving review of substance abuse counseling and treatment to allow a nurse to maintain his or her nursing practice. Mr. Dolley understands that there are often mitigating circumstances relating to chemical dependency and that each Nursing Board complaint must be evaluated based upon the particular facts and circumstances of the case.

Missouri Board of Nursing Standards in Drug and Alcohol Cases

In drug and alcohol abuse cases, the Missouri Board of Nursing has a consistent practice of maintaining and requiring significant drug and alcohol testing in order for nurses to maintain a nursing license. Mr. Dolley counsels and advises clients on such settlement agreement terms and the appropriate course of action for each case.

Many nurses still continue to represent themselves in drug and alcohol cases. When you are notified of a nursing board complaint, complaint before the Administrative Hearing Commission, or charged with a probation violation, Mr. Dolley encourages nurses to contact him directly to discuss possible representation. Mr. Dolley works with nurses in evaluating cases and explaining the factors upon which the Board of Nursing evaluates drug and alcohol cases.

The Missouri Board of Nursing and DWI Cases

A DWI does not necessarily mean that your Missouri nursing license is subject to discipline. If the Board accused you of a "moral turpitude" violation relating to a DWI charge, it is far from a certainty that the Board will be successful in establishing a violation of the Nursing Practices Act. In such cases, Mr. Dolley advises that you contact him directly to discuss the Board complaint and/or any proposed settlement agreement from the Board of Nursing.
