Administrative Law

Administrative law is the branch of law that focuses on the creation, operation, and procedures surrounding administrative agencies. From business licensing to medical compliance, from brand new tech companies to outdoor café seating, we can help you understand and navigate the local regulations that your business must follow. We can then fully advocate on your behalf before District boards, commissions, and agencies.

An important part of our administrative law practice involves responding to “Notice of Infraction,” and “Notice of Violation” letters on behalf of our clients. As a small business owner, you may receive a mailed letter from the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) or the Court of Appeals, advising you of a case related to a District government agency.

  • Matters before the District’s Office of Administrative Hearings
