Rhode Island Administrative Law Attorneys Protect Your Due Process Rights

Experienced representation in Providence 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. At Lynch & Pine, in Providence, we have substantial experience appearing before numerous federal and state agencies, including:

  • U.S. and Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island Department of Human Services
  • U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • U.S. Food and Drug Administration
  • Rhode Island Education Department

When you face an administrative hearing, you need the assistance of a skilled attorney who has 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 a strong advocate at Lynch & Pine 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. At Lynch & Pine, we have represented physicians, engineers, dentists, insurance brokers, architects and many other professionals in hearings before Rhode Island state boards, such as:

  • Architects Licensure Boards
  • Contractors State License Boards
  • Dental Boards
  • Departments of Insurance
  • Liquor Control Boards
  • 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.
