West Memphis Administrative Law Information

Do You Have an Administrative Law Problem?

Administrative law governs administrative government agencies, which are any city, county, state or federal governmental agency. As each agency likely has its own set of rules and regulations, an experienced West Memphis administrative law attorney will be able to help you maneuver through the system and help you see what your rights are.

Types of Administrative Law Cases

Administrative agencies on any level of the government can have the power to issue licenses and grant permits. Lawyers specialized in administrative law can help you if you are dealing with a dispute on a permit, such as a building permit, or a license to perform some type of work, such as a contractor's license.

Administrative law attorneys are also able to help you make the appropriate complaints against certain agencies should your rights have been violated. This is such a large and complex area of law, and you owe it to yourself to not try and handle an administrative law issue on your own.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney's hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For "routine" legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.
