Florida Administrative Law Attorneys Protect Your Due Process Rights

Experienced representation in Fort Myers for agency hearings and appeals

Administrative law is composed of the rules, regulations and procedures established by federal and state agencies to accomplish their missions. While these “regs" may be created with the best intentions, they may seriously threaten your constitutional right to due process. The attorneys at Mahshie & DeCosta have {EXP_YEARS} years of experience appearing before numerous federal and state agencies, including:

  • U.S. and Florida Environmental Protection Agencies
  • U.S. Department of Energy
  • U.S. Department of the Interior
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture
  • U.S. Department of Commerce
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Florida Department of Human Services
  • U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • U.S. Food and Drug Administration
  • Florida Education Department

When you face an administrative hearing, you need the assistance of skilled attorneys who have experience with the specific agency involved.

Guarding against unchecked power

While agency regulations carry the force of law, elected representatives of the people do not vote to enact them. Rather, appointed officeholders create “regs" under basic guidelines in the federal Administrative Procedure Act or a state equivalent. Moreover, federal and state agencies have the power to adjudicate, so citizens in dispute with an agency may have their cases heard by a central office of administrative hearings or before the very department with which they are in conflict. In a system where an agency functions as the executive, legislative and judiciary all rolled together, you need strong advocates at Mahshie & DeCosta on your side.

Defending professional and business licenses before state boards

Whether you are a restaurateur, a surgeon or an architect, your license is your livelihood. The firm's attorneys have represented physicians, engineers, dentists, insurance brokers, architects and many other professionals in hearings before Florida state boards, such as:

  • Architects Licensure Boards
  • Contractors State License Boards
  • Dental Boards
  • Departments of Insurance

  • Medical Boards

A disciplinary hearing is a serious matter for any license holder. As soon as you have notice of a licensing board investigation aimed at you, contact a capable administrative law attorney immediately.
