Administrative Law & Hearings
An “administrative case” begins with a state agency’s Notice of Denial (of an application) or administrative complaint (to discipline a licensee). To challenge an agency’s action, you have 21 days to file a petition for an “informal” or “formal” hearing — otherwise, you lose that right. If the alleged facts are not in dispute, you are entitled to an “informal hearing” before an informal hearing officer appointed by agency. If facts are disputed, you are entitled to a “formal evidentiary hearing” conducted before an administrative law judge who issues a recommended order to the agency which then enters a “final order.” Our firm since its inception has represented numerous applicants and licensees in both informal and formal hearings and is ready to assist you should you require knowledgeable legal representation.
