Protect Your Rights With an Attorney's Help

How Is Administrative Law Different?
An administrative law attorney represents people who must appear before a government agency to resolve matters such as:
- Professional licensing
- Employment law and discrimination hearings
- Unemployment hearings
- Workers' compensation hearings
- Department of Revenue hearings
- Child support hearings
- Driver's license administrative actions
Administrative hearings are not courtroom trials, but the results are generally legally binding. In many cases, you may appeal the results to a higher administrative body or to a federal court. The attorneys at Trapp Law Firm can represent you throughout the process, taking your case to court if that is in your best interests.
Helping Professionals Protect Their Careers
Trapp Law Firm provides defense of licenses in front of hearing commissions for professionals such as doctors, dentists, nurses, insurance and real estate agents, and Missouri state employees. A professional license can be at risk for many reasons such as:
- Felony DWI
- Sexual misconduct
- Other criminal charges
- Breach of professional ethics
Being convicted of a crime, even one not related to your profession, can affect your license. If you are convicted of a felony, you can lose your license to practice in fields and occupations such as:
- Real estate
There are administrative rights to protect your professional license and your right to earn a living. You have a right to legal counsel. You have a right to a hearing, a right to confront witnesses and a right to present your own witnesses. In addition, you have a right to a recorded and transcribed hearing, and a right to appeal the process.
