What our Clients Say

I needed an attorney to handle my nursing endorsement application with the Nevada State Board of Nursing, which I had a previous criminal conviction. With his knowledge and expertise, I was able to get my license unencumbered with no restrictions.
I am very fortunate that I found Atty Craig Perry to represent me to the Board of Nursing. He fought for me till the end and it was the best feeling when I heard from him that our battle was over with good news

Mr. Perry and his team came through for me when I desperately needed help to fight and to save my nurses license, and he didn't do it just to take on another case. He really believed in me which is what a person needs when you are going up against the nursing board
