Administrative Law Hearings

Administrative Law Hearing

In the situation that an administrative law hearing must take place, it is highly advisable that you seek the legal assistance of a civil litigation lawyer because it is a complicated process and one that can change your life forever. Administrative law hearings involve a government agency and a citizen of the state. The Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) is the State of Washington's primary source of information regarding administrative law hearings. In this situation, an Administrative Law Judge will provide the instructions of how the process takes place.

What is an administrative hearing?

The purpose of an administrative hearing is to view state decisions prior to the situation being placed in the hands of the judge. Each individual party has the ability to question witnesses and either challenge or submit documents that have precedence with the decision. According to the Administrative Procedure Act, Chapter 34.05 RCW, the OAH is responsible for directing the hearings for the state agencies.

If the process needs to begin, my firm can help administer a written request to the agency on your behalf. After this, a hearing is usually scheduled and as in other cases, each party is given a notice with information detailing the date, time, and place of the hearing. An Administrative Law Judge is assigned to the case and the individual is given the option to be represented by a civil litigation attorney. This is an important part of an OAH because there are many complex laws in place that could require the assistance of an attorney to represent the person required to appear. The final decision is usually given by the Administrative Law Judge, who can be influenced by a knowledgeable attorney.
