Steps of Formal Disposition in a Contested Case
If you are disputing the findings of an Alabama Nursing Board investigation, you will be scheduled for an administrative hearing. Information regarding this hearing will be received at least 20 days before your hearing date. You may not have professional representation yet, but this is the time to obtain professional expertise to assist you through your case. Kreps Law Firm has the skill and dedication that you need to obtain the outcome you need at your Nursing Board hearing
The first step that can be taken on your behalf is filing a motion for dismissal. Kreps Law Firm has substantial experience in obtaining successful results from filing dismissal motions and will work tirelessly to minimize the work that you have to go through to settle your dispute. Having a case dismissed at this point is the best case scenario.
Pleadings, requests for subpoenas, and requests for continuances must be filed previous to the hearing date. Kreps Law Firm will ensure that the proper documents are completed and filed as the Nursing Board requires to ensure that problems do not arise due to noncompliance with Board requirements.
A Board hearing officer presides over the hearing, which is recorded and transcribed. Recordings used and evidence allowed are the jurisdiction of this hearing officer. Since Kreps Law Firm has experience with Nursing Board hearings, they are prepared to cope with each element of the case.
At the conclusion of the hearing, the Board hearing officer has the ability to dismiss the case, render a not guilty verdict, or move the case forward with a guilty verdict. In the case of a dismissal or not guilty verdict, your case is considered complete. Kreps Law Firm specializes in obtaining these favorable hearing outcomes for our clients who are participants in Nursing Board hearings and proceedings.
