Administrative law is composed of the rules, regulations and procedures established by federal and state agencies to accomplish their missions.

Administrative litigation is litigation before government regulatory agencies, generally when those agencies seek to enforce regulatory obligations against private clients.  

Administrative practice has many differences from traditional judicial litigation. Procedures vary from agency to agency and each has its own rules of procedure and evidence.  

Whenever your business or occupation requires a license, your license is your livelihood. 

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.

In addition, agencies are required to consider the interests of affected stakeholders when developing regulations. If your businesses may be affected by regulations under development, you should consider participating in the rulemaking process.

At Fagelbaum & Heller, our attorneys have years of experience practicing before government agencies as regulatory enforcement attorneys, in the U.S. Attorney’s office, and in private practice representing heavily regulated industries.  As a result, they know the ins and outs of administrative practice and effectively represent clients with government regulation issues. By the same token, we bring the same rigorous approach to administrative practice as in our judicial litigation, seeking the best possible results for our clients.

Among the government agencies before which our attorneys have practiced are:

  • U.S. Federal Communications Commission
  • U.S. Federal Trade Commission
  • U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
  • U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • California Bureau of Automotive Repair
