Review John Bishop

    After being involved in a Medicare scheme case with an old employer and getting a FEDERAL FELONY due to it I thought I would lose my nursing license for sure. After hearing stories and reading articles of how easy it is to lose your license in the state of CA I thought, "Ok if I get a felony then I've got to work like hell to keep my license" Of course when you start looking for a lawyer you want one with decades of experience and expertise. Well, don't let John's age or years of experience fool you. You'll think to yourself "What's 5 years compared to 20+ years?" But, he is very knowledgeable in his line of work and is very reasonable with his fees so you don't burn a hole in your pocket. (I've consulted with many other licensing lawyers and their fees were astronomical). In my case I was very fortunate since he mainly deals with healthcare and knows the ins and outs of the Nursing Boards. He knows what they want and expect from you as a licensee and the steps to keep and save your license. Throughout the whole process I just thought worst case scenario that I would lose it. But his calming demeanor and reassurance made me feel so much better. Of course he can never promise or guarantee things but with his expertise he will work with the boards to get the best outcome possible. With John's expertise he was able to get me 3 years probation and after I successfully complete that I will have a clear license. With a federal felony, what's a better outcome than that? I would wake up every morning stressed out thinking about how I would provide for my family since nursing is my livelihood. Now I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can finally breathe. Because of John I am able to keep doing what I love and keep my job. There isn't enough thank you's in the world for what he has done for me and my family. So thank you a million times John. I'll never forget what you've done for me. I'd also like to add, it wasn't hard at all for me to refer a fellow nurse to him..my outcome spoke for it all. That's how good he is. So if you're thinking about hiring him, don't second guess! Take my word for it, you won't regret it.

    If you need a lawyer for your State license I highly recommend John. He can work miracles. I had a felony conviction and the state was trying to take my license away. I spoke to many attorneys before I called john and all of them told me I had no chance of keeping my license. Thank god I found John. I have dealt with attorneys before but John is the best in every way. He actually takes his time to talk to you unlike other attorneys where once they take your money rush you off the phone and don't answer your phone calls anymore. He is the most knowledgeable and professional attorney I have ever dealt with. there was two of us on the same felony case the other person got his license taken away by the state because he didn't hire John. Thank god I hired john and I got to keep my license. As long as I live I will never forget what John did for me. My life would have turned upside down and I would have lost my license which I have more then 16 years if it wasn't for John. The way he carries himself in the courtroom and the respect he gets is unbelievable.. So if you find yourself in a situation where you need to save your license and livelihood without a doubt hire John he will work miracles. The other guy that didn't hire John got lost his license is regretting every day. John I want to thank you again and wish you the best in life. Always know that you have saved me and you will live in my memories forever. I will forever be grateful to you and God bless you. If I could give you 10 stars I would.

    I had to send an application to the state board before being able to sit for the esthetician exam and explain a conviction that occurred 10 years ago. It was a very difficult criminal case that started from a felony conviction to an expunged misdemeanor. There were jail time involved including multiple probation violations. Attorney Bishop helped me put together my application and I am so glad I went to see him ! He's an expert in what he does and he helped with some revisions in the short amount of time I had. Despite the severity of my case, he helped me get through it in a profession manner and in the best possible way. My application was approved with no notices required for additional information. I honestly don't believe I would have been approved without attorney bishops help!

    The Dept of Insurance was trying to revoke my license and John Bishop saved me. He clearly explained the steps that we were going to take, explained the expectations and went to work. I really felt that he cared and the results showed. I highly recommend John Bishop.

    Alright so the District's accusation was bogus and predatory but it was VERY VERY REAL. John walked me through the process and wrote me a letter that ended up with getting the investigation closed down with no adverse consequences to me at all. Don't go it alone folks get yourself a lawyer who specializes in license law and protect your huge financial and professional investment in your career.

    John was an amazing lawyer for me. He helped me obtain a full/clear license with the department of Insurance after I was denied. He walked me through the process step by step and helped me understand what to expect and what needed to be done on my part. I would highly recommend John for anyone who would need help through the process of trying to obtain and professional license.

    John is a great Attorney! He wrote a letter of explanation for me to send to the state BRN. It was impeccable, professional, and so clearly written. I would never be able to put together such a finely written letter. I would highly recommend him to anyone with licensing issues! Well worth the cost to save your license!

  • Clear License from the BVNPT / Multiple Criminal Convictions

    John Bishop represented me in a license denial case against the Board of Vocational Nursing & Psychiatric Technician. After been denied I contacted several licensing attorneys who quoted me an astronomical fee just to review my case. I decided to go with John Bishop because he gave me a flat rate fee which made me feel comfortable and not like I was being taken for every nickel and dime that I had. My license was denied due to SEVEN conviction on my background check ranging from prostitution to petty theft to assault on a peace officer. During our first meeting John let me know that the best that we could hope for would be a probationary license and that he would do all that he could to win my case. John was hands on during every step of the process. I never met with anyone else but him and when I called he always returned my call promptly. He handled all communication with the state and kept me informed every step of the way. John personally reviewed all of my character letters and helped prepare not only myself but my witnesses as well for the board hearing by conducting mock interviews which really helped. John Bishop went above and beyond and he gave me more than his best. Not only did he win my case but I was given a license with a clear status and no probation.Currently I am enrolled in an RN program and before I submit my application to the BRN I will surely be in contact John Bishop requesting his legal representation.

    John Bishops service was hands down the best investment I've ever made. He is a very intelligent and honest attorney (I know rare to have both qualities in the same attorney ). He did everything that we asked him to do and more. He never doubted our integrity or desire. Thank you for the future you and your services allowed me to provide for my family.

Thank you for the kind words, Shane, but you deserved all of your success. I was fortunate to be associated with your case.”

    There was a possibility of losing my RN license or at least being placed on probation by BRN because of a misdemeanor. It was very stressful to work thinking that I may lose the career that I've always loved. I consulted Frederick Ray's Law office and Mr Bishop was assigned to handle my case. I was disappointed at first because I thought he wasn't experienced enough to handle the case. But Mt Bishop proved me wrong. He handled my case very well, kept me informed of what's going on with my case and how he's working everything out with the board. He handled my case all the way to trial. And I was very impressed how he defended my license. The judge didn't impose any discipline against my license and the decision was adapted by the BRN. Now I can work without any fear that I may lose my license because of an incident that happened in the past. I highly recommend Mr John Bishop. I couldn't thank him enough.
