What are Administrative Hearings?
The state and federal government have created administrative agencies to carry out many governing and regulatory tasks. These agencies make rules; enforce regulations; and take actions against people and companies. Administrative agencies in Riverside include:
- The Department of Motor Vehicles (the DMV)
- The California State Bar
- The California Bureau of Consumer Affairs
- Licensing boards for healthcare professionals, accountants, and attorneys
- The Department of Insurance
- Alcohol and Beverage Control
You could be required to attend an administrative hearing in many situations, such as if you are accused of violating your professional obligations or if you refuse to take a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test with reasonable cause.
The outcome of these hearings can have a significant impact on your life. You could lose the ability to do your job, run your business, or drive your vehicle.
How a Riverside Administrative Hearings Lawyer Can Help You
In some cases, such as when your license may be taken due to a BAC test over the limit, you must request an administrative hearing. If you don’t request a hearing, action against you can be taken automatically and you can be deprived of your rights, including your right to drive for as long as three years depending upon your past convictions.
You must understand the power administrative agencies have, as well as your obligations for responding to administrative action. A riverside administrative hearings lawyer can help you to understand the rules and regulations that apply to you and can assist you in taking the steps necessary to protect yourself.
