What Is Administrative Law?
Like it or not, government plays a significant role in our everyday lives. Government agencies at the local, state and federal level assure that we have safe food and water, roads to drive on, protection for our parks and forests, help for the disabled, and many other services that allow our society to function.
In order for government to function and enforce policies, laws are created that affect every one of us on a daily basis. And while these laws are generally created for the greater good of society, how these laws are enforced can often be open to interpretation by the government, private citizens, businesses and organizations. Inevitably, there are conflicts between how government attempts to enforce these laws and how they affect you or your business. This area of law is known as administrative law or regulatory law.
If you feel your rights to government services are not being interpreted correctly, or that the government is unfairly enforcing a law against you or your business, you may need to hire an administrative law attorney. An attorney who specializes in administrative law has in-depth knowledge of government rules of regulations and understands how to interpret them to the benefit of their clients.
