Our newest associate, Mr. Matthew Truong, recently assisted a client with disclosure of a felony conviction to the Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians. The client plead guilty to felony vandalism and misdemeanor battery in late 2016. Two months later, Mr. Truong helped the client gather mitigation and rehabilitation evidence to present to the Board as part of the client’s responsibility to disclose the criminal convictions to the Board.
Although the client served jail time and was required to report to a probation officer, the LVN Board elected not to pursue disciplinary action against the client. Mr. Truong’s counsel and presentation to the Board was instrumental in keeping the client free from any professional consequences, and the client remains employed.
