We are experienced California administrative law attorneys, and we defend licensed professionals and businesses before the Medical Board, Department of Insurance, Department of Real Estate and other California licensing agencies. We have many years of administrative hearing experience before the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH), as well as license defense experience in other administrative law forums. 1
Our California License Law practice includes:
- Investigations by administrative agencies
- License denials
- Settlement negotiations
- Administrative hearings
- Appeal to the California Superior Court by writ of mandate (mandamus)
- Appeal to the California Court of Appeal
- Temporary or interim suspension orders
- Petitions for reconsideration
- Petitions for reinstatement
We have experience in non-governmental administrative law matters, such as physician hospital privileges and termination from medical provider networks (MPN). We also have experience in quasi-governmental administrative law matters involving government mandated certification or accreditation by non-governmental organizations such as ECFMG (Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) and ACE (American Council on Education).
We also defend pilots before the FAA and NTSB. 2
We value our credibility:
--Credibility with clients through honest and realistic case evaluations, reasonable fees and by striving for the best result possible under the circumstances.
--Credibility with agencies, the Department of Justice and administrative law judges by thorough preparation, honest representations, our willingness to try cases or appeal decisions, and by obtaining good results.
We enjoy our work--the satisfaction of saving a client's livelihood, the challenge of constitutional law issues, and our working relationships with opposing counsel.
We select cases based on our work flow, the nature of the legal issue, whether we can be effective and financial considerations. We welcome your inquiry, and we will try to be helpful even if we cannot take your case.
