administrative law

Administrative law is the body of law that governs the activities of government administrative agencies. Federal, state, and local government agencies have their own set of processes, generally modelled on the Federal Administrative Procedure Act, for resolving agency disputes with the public and among members of the public. Administrative procedure involves a more nuanced and flexible balance of rights and protections than is typical of more straightforward civil actions. This is because regulatory agencies often deal with entitlements and licenses that get less due process protection than more fundamental rights like life, liberty, and property. Legislatures and courts generally give government agencies more discretion to make decisions about the regulations they are created to administer. This means that dealing with government agencies requires more nuance and sometimes more cooperation than what is required in a typical civil suit. At Hutchings Law Group, we understand the complexities of navigating administrative processes and can help you accomplish your goals.
