In general, our clients come into contact with the government when they are seeking a permit or approval, or when action is being taken against them. Whether the body is a city, county or any of the administrative branches of government, we are equipped to help our clients. Our work may begin when an organization requires a permit, zoning or variance license. We will help to prepare the application and represent the organization in appearances before the appropriate administrative body. Should a client be wrongfully denied at this level, our next step will be to seek all applicable rights and remedies in an administrative law proceeding. Finally, we can bring the matter for judicial review, usually in a court of appeal.

Our lawyers have represented a diverse array of clients on a broad scope of complex regulatory issues involving federal, state and local authorities. We have experience in all aspects of administrative litigation and government regulation. Our attorneys provide legal advice and representation in a wide range of substantive areas, including the following: insurance regulation; professional licensing; rule making and challenges; bid disputes; and public record law disputes.
