Georgia Administrative Law Firm Protects Your Due Process Rights

Experienced lawyer represents clients in the Young Harris area in agency hearings and appeals

Administrative law involves the rules, regulations and procedures established by federal and state agencies to accomplish their missions. While these regulations may be created with the best intentions, they can also threaten your constitutional right to due process in their application. At Scott M. Ledford LLC, our attorney represents individuals and businesses in the Young Harris area and throughout Georgia in administrative law actions, advocating for their rights before government entities.

At Scott M. Ledford LLC, we have substantial experience representing clients in administrative proceedings before numerous federal and state agencies, including:

  • U.S. and Georgia 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 Georgia Department of Human Services

In any administrative hearing, it’s important to retain skilled representation from an attorney who has experience with the specific agency involved. We put our extensive background and knowledge of these agencies to work on your behalf.

Skilled litigator guards 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 Scott M. Ledford LLC on your side.

Dedicated lawyer defends professional and business licenses before state boards

Whether you are a restaurateur, a surgeon or an architect, your license is your livelihood. At Scott M. Ledford LLC, we have represented physicians, engineers, dentists, insurance brokers, architects and many other professionals in hearings before Georgia state boards, such as:

  • Architects’ licensure boards
  • Contractors’ state license boards
  • Medical and dental boards

A disciplinary hearing is a serious matter for any license holder. As soon as you are notified that you’re under investigation by a licensing board, contact our capable administrative law attorney immediately.
