How to Find a Nurse Attorney

Posted Nov 18 2008 3:15pm

I often get inquires from nurses in other states looking for an attorney to represent them before their state’s nursing board. Since I can only represent nurses before the Texas Board of Nursing I wanted to give some hints for nurses to find an attorney in their state. The area of law involved is Administrative Law, so you want to look for an administrative lawyer, not a family law lawyer, not a criminal defense attorney, not a medical malpractice attorney, and on and on. Look for recommendations from –

· State nursing association
· The American Association of Nurse Attorneys referral line (1-866-807-7133)
· State Bar
· co-workers, supervisors (if appropriate)
· sometimes even the Nursing Board will provide names of attorneys that frequently practice before them

Search
· online
· yellow pages (although most attorneys seem to be placing their advertising money into internet advertising)
· professional journals
· articles
