Lucy S. McAllister is uniquely qualified as a professional licensing defense attorney and a criminal defense attorney to attack the errors in your arrest and therefore control the outcome to protect your RN/LVN license. These unique crossover cases between two areas of law require a specialist in both.

The evidence need in criminal court is not what the BRN wants to see. Understanding the BRN disciplinary guidelines requires the unique legal expertise that Lucy will bring to your defense.

With over 30 years of DUI defense experience, Lucy only represents professionals whose career is on the line. For first time DUIs, she has a record of 100% in professional license retention.

To defend your professional license, an attorney will need all of the documentation from your criminal case, including the police report, the complaint, etc. As a professional licensing attorney, Lucy can provide the District Attorney with a “Collateral Consequence Letter” – a negotiation tool uniquely established by attorney Lucy McAllister to convince the District Attorney in your criminal case to respect your professional license.

When Lucy has negotiated a favorable settlement or dismissal of your criminal case, this win will then allow her to convince the BRN that the criminal charge has been contained.

The right decision financially and emotionally is to hire one trusted attorney to handle both your criminal defense and professional license defense means you can be a nurse with a DUI.
