Testimonials / What Our Clients Say

  • My case was unique in an array of ways as I was utterly shocked, dumbfounded, and did not ever expect to be reported to the CTC for educational misconduct. In the initial proceedings, I had thought that my case would be closed, but that unfortunately did not happen. My case ended up going to formal proceedings and requested to have a hearing with the committee of credentials. I was initially very concerned about finding the “correct kind” of representation for my case. Thankfully, I came across Jonathan Turner and after having my initial conversation with Jonathan, I was immediately impressed with his professionalism, experience, and knowledge. In addition, I was most impressed by Jonathan’s prompt responses to all my emails and questions as I was going through the process. Jonathan helped significantly with building a strong case on my behalf. At the hearing, I was a nervous wreck, but Jonathan walked me through the entire process ahead of time and provided the perfect closing statement on behalf of my case. About a week after the hearing, Jonathan emailed me to let me know that my case was closed with no adverse actions taken against me. Although this whole experience was stressful and elevated my anxieties, I would not have been able to get through the process without Jonathan’s help. I am indebted to Jonathan and everything he did for me.

    C.P., Registered Nurse
  • I hired Mr. Turner after, my first attorney left for another job without notification and only suggestions for new attorneys. I looked online, contacted a few but went with my gut and chose him. Mr. Turner didn't waste my time, and asked me to get ahold of him once my Accusation from the board came. Once the Accusation came, he was thorough about his approach, the outcome we both wanted was agreed upon. He was very responsive and professional with emails, personal calls and detailed in what we needed to do to present the case. When I got notification from him that the State Board accepted our proposal, I was in shock and completely delighted that the outcome was exactly what we wanted. I can not thank him enough, and highly recommend him to any nurse or profession whom may face a disciplinary action and needs professional help.
