Jessica M., Sept 2020, Rating: 5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
When I set out to attempt to get an initial nursing license despite having multiple legal issues from partying as a younger adult, someone told me Robert Chelle was THE attorney to hire. Many other people told me, “have a backup plan.” I never had a backup plan, so it was extremely important for me to obtain a nursing license. I made the decision early on that I would not go before the board alone. I knew from a past experience that dealing with licensing boards while representing oneself was risky. I failed to obtain a real estate license, representing myself. Unsure where to turn after that, I decided to head back to school for nursing, which had been my dream career. I previously believed it was unavailable to me and gave up 16 years ago. With Mr. Chelle’s help, I was able to realize that dream: I am an RN today with a promising career ahead of me. I am eternally grateful to Chelle Law as they were able to assist me in starting a new life as a nurse. A few months before I was about to complete my BSN, I contacted his office and met with him within the week. He immediately put my mind at ease. He told me he would actually be able to help me. This was such a relief; I was unsure if my situation could be helped by anyone, even the best of the best. Today, I am an RN, I have a full-time job as an RN, and I am practicing nursing. I am on probation with the board, but that was to be expected. I was not seeking representation to avoid probation, but if that is what you are seeking, I know others whom Mr. Chelle has helped to reduce or eliminate the probation terms that the board may want to implement. During the process, I was never alone. I never had to speak to the board without his help. He and his assistant, Memory, guided me through the whole process. I expected this situation to be the most stressful experience in my recent life; I am so happy to be able to report it was not stressful at all. This is because I had the best help I could get in this situation. I highly recommend Chelle Law if you anticipate having an issue getting (or keeping) your nursing license. You’ve got so much invested in your career to risk representing yourself. In my case, I had invested 2.5 years of time and tens of thousands of dollars on school before I contacted Mr. Chelle. He and his team were able to provide me results that were essential to being able to start my career..”
