“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..”

“Mr. Chelle represented me in my application process with my Registered Nurse License. I feel very confident referring his mitigating abilities. He was able to offer positive direction in obtaining my license. Throughout this four month process he would follow up with any new information and would check in even if there was no new information. The information that he was able to provide during the application process was bar none the best I could have expected. At the end of my process, we were able to get my self complaint removed and have no action taken against my license. I have kept his contact information just in case there is anything else that he may be able to help me with. The greatest aspect of Rob was his honesty!! I would rate his services a 5/5 due to the timeliness, the actions received from the board, and the overall collaborative effort in achieving the best outcome for me. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of any help. ”

My case concluded very quickly and with a better than anticipated outcome. The speed at which my case started moving forward was impressive, concluding in less than two months. I will recommend Rob to anyone in need of state board representation. He is professional and seems well respected by the board members. I am confident that the result of my case was directly related to the representation I received from Mr. Chelle.”

“Robert Chelle is one of the most amazing Health Care Attorneys in the state of Arizona. I was having a great amount of legal difficulty with my schooling and he was able to reprimand the situation in less than a week. Thanks to his fantastic legal help I will be able to move on with my dreams in becoming a Registered Nurse. Robert Chelle is not only able to help in cases of professionals currently working in the health care field, but he also takes time out of his busy work schedule to help professionals trying to come into the health care field. There is not any other lawyer in Arizona I would go to if I was having a problem with my license, and I hope that future clients will find the same joy in his great and honest work.”
“Mr. Chelle proved to be exactly who I needed to represent me during my hearing with the Board of Nursing. Initially, I had not planned on hiring an attorney, thinking that I was able to handle my case on my own. The thought of representing myself alone in front of the Board was stressful, so I sought some professional advice. I was told that anytime you are defending your professional license before the governing board, that you should have legal representation. Mr. Chelle was able to present my case clearly and concisely within a few minutes, and won my case for me. He knew what the Board wanted to hear, and how brief he needed to be, in order to win a favorable outcome. Mr. Chelle was well worth what he charged, for representing me honestly and positively. I am forever grateful for his help and support.”
“Mr. Chelle represented me regarding a complaint filed against my R.N. License. He met with me immediately and kept me informed of the process and time it would take to resolve this complaint.He and his office staff were attentive and kept me updated. He accompanied me to my meeting with the State Board of Nursing Investigator and was reassuring of a favorable outcome. The case was dismissed, without prejudice, and closed. Mr. Chelle is truly THE attorney you would want to represent you. Thank you”
