Louisiana Administrative Law Attorney Protects Your Due Process Rights
Experienced representation for agency hearings and appeals
Administrative law is composed of the rules, regulations and procedures established by federal and state agencies to accomplish their missions. While these “regs” may be created with the best intentions, they may seriously threaten your Constitutional right to due process. I have 48 years of experience appearing before numerous municipal, parish and state agencies. When you face an administrative hearing, you need the assistance of a skilled attorney who has experience with the specific agency involved.
Guarding against unchecked power
While agency regulations carry the force of law, elected representatives of the people do not vote to enact them. Rather, appointed officeholders create “regs” under basic guidelines in the federal Administrative Procedure Act or a state equivalent. Moreover, federal and state agencies have the power to adjudicate, so citizens in dispute with an agency may have their cases heard by a central office of administrative hearings or before the very department with which they are in conflict. In a system where an agency functions as the executive, legislative and judiciary all rolled together, you need a strong advocate at on your side.
Defending professional and business licenses before state boards
Whether you are a restaurateur, a surgeon or an architect, your license is your livelihood. I have represented physicians, engineers, dentists, insurance brokers, architects and many other professionals in hearings before Louisiana state boards, such as:
- Architects Licensure Board
- Contractors State License Board
- Dental Board
- Department of Insurance
- Liquor Control Board
- Medical Board
A disciplinary hearing is a serious matter for any license holder. As soon as you have notice of a licensing board investigation aimed at you, contact a capable administrative law attorney immediately.
