Welcome to the Law Office of Kelly J. McDonald where we specialize in matters involving health care professionals and their respective licensing boards. A health care professional himself, Kelly J. McDonald has been a registered nurse since 1982, holds an active license in the state of Arizona, and has been practicing law for over 20 years.

Expectations of a Healthcare Professional

As a licensed health professional, you are held to a higher standard of conduct. This means that actions that would simply lead to discipline or termination of a typical employee can lead to the loss of a career for a health professional. Additionally, matters that would be typically kept private can lead to the loss of livelihood for the health professional.

Because consequences are so serious, and the process may be confusing and complicated, the defense of your professional license deserves the attention of someone with experience and understanding of your situation. With over 20 years of legal experience, 18 years representing health professionals in front of their professional boards, and an active RN since 1982 Kelly J. McDonald has the experience and knowledge that you deserve and need.
