Administrative Procedures And Hearings
Legal issues are not always resolved in a courthouse. Significant amounts of legal actions take place in the settings of government agencies. These settings are often even less familiar for parties than the courtroom, meaning that parties have a difficult time discerning if the agency is asking them for help or if the agency is investigating them.
Just because you aren’t walking into a courthouse doesn’t mean you don’t need a lawyer. Disciplinary boards, investigation committees, grand jury and arbitration hearings are still be venues where you need advice and counsel of an experienced attorney to defend and protect your interests. What you and others say during such procedures, investigations, and hearings can have serious, life-changing results.
