DHS & HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Day care workers, nurses, home health care aides, personal care attendants, teachers, psychologists, licensed social workers, and other professionals depend on their professional licenses to make a living. At The Law Office of Jennifer Pradt we advise and defend professionals facing license revocations or disciplinary proceedings stemming from alleged misconduct.
Many misdemeanors have consequences for your license. Make sure you have an attorney that can navigate the legal system and help you stay licensed. For nurses or PCAs, even a first time DWI or Disorderly Conduct can have negative consequences.
Don’t wait until investigators call to speak with you. It’s essential that you begin defending your rights with an attorney.
ARE YOU A NURSE FACING CRIMINAL CHARGES?
If you are a nurse facing criminal allegations or accused of violating ethical standards at work, obtain experienced legal help. Everything you have worked for can be lost based on the Minnesota Nursing Board’s recommendations. Years of hard work can be taken away by DHS and the Nursing Board. An aggressive defense, and corrective measures can protect your career.
At the Law Office of Jennifer Pradt, we are experienced in counseling nurses facing administrative and criminal allegations. This is a battle on two fronts: legal and administrative. There are criminal penalties and considerations and what happens in court will impact what you could face with the Nursing Board.

HANDLING MALTREATMENT INVESTIGATIONS AND HEARINGS IN MINNEAPOLIS
If you are accused of maltreatment, your professional license is at risk. The Department of Human Services (DHS) will investigate to determine if there was serious maltreatment. Based on its findings, officials can recommend license revocations, suspensions or disqualify you from working. You want an attorney with you from the earliest steps of the process to help you through every part of the investigation, and to help bolster the defense of your license and livelihood.
YOUR COMMERCIAL DRIVER’S LICENSE
Minor traffic offenses (driving without insurance or careless driving) will harm your right to drive for a living. Make sure you are represented early in the process for any traffic violation or a DWI. The Department of Public Safety has strict standards and a vast bureaucracy to wade through. An attorney retained early in the process can help save your right to drive. Jennifer Pradt has helped thousands of drivers throughout her career.
