San Bernardino Administrative Hearings Lawyer
While most San Bernardino residents are familiar with criminal law, few are familiar with administrative law, and even fewer still could give you an accurate description of the matters falling under administrative jurisdiction. In fact, the body of administrative law and the circumstances it covers is larger than ever, and affects nearly every individual, company, and industry. If you or your company is facing an administrative proceeding relating to an alleged infraction, it may be time to consult with an attorney specializing in administrative hearings like the ones at Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP.
California Administrative Law
Administrative law deals primarily with state licensing administrations, for example matters involving the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), the Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control (ABC), and the Bureau of Consumer Affairs (BCA), among many others. Administrative proceedings can be launched for a variety of reasons, but most frequently involve infractions against the guidelines and requirements of a certain business or professional organization. Attorneys with Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP have assisted clients facing allegations relating to the following, among many others:
- Driver’s license suspension
- Enforcement actions
- Denials of certification
- Background and moral character qualifications
Although many people assume administrative proceedings are not as serious as criminal allegations, as a business or professional, the result of an administrative hearing could spell the collapse of your company or the end of your career. The damage to company or individual credibility resulting from an administrative proceeding can be crippling.
Because there is no jury involved in an administrative hearing, the judgment resulting from the proceeding is entirely within the power of the administrative board. As a result, administrative hearings are very different from criminal trials, and when choosing an attorney you must consider whether they have extensive experience assisting with administrative matters.
