The importance of telling your lawyer the truth.
When I represent Nurses before the Minnesota Board of Nursing, one of the first things I tell those Nurses is to tell me everything and tell me the truth. Administrative Law practiced before the Minnesota Board of Nursing is very different from criminal law, unless that Nurse is charged with a crime, i.e. Diversion of Medicine. In Administrative Law before the Minnesota Board of Nursing, it is much easier for the Board to get information about the background of the licensed Nurse. Consequently, when a nurse appears before the Minnesota Board of Nursing, in order to represent them effectively, your attorney needs to know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, before any response is made. All information told to your attorney is absolutely confidential and the Minnesota Board of Nursing will never ask about or question what you told your attorney.
Tell your lawyer everything before he responds to the Minnesota Board of Nursing. For any further questions contact Fabian Hoffner at The Hoffner Firm, Ltd. 612-206-3777.
