Jefferson City 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 Jefferson City 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.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is in your best interest to get legal help early on in addressing your situation. There are times when hiring a lawyer quickly is critical to your case, such as if you are charged with a crime. It may also be in your best interest to have a lawyer review the fine print before signing legal documents. A lawyer can also help you get the compensation you deserve if you've suffered a serious injury. For issues where money or property is at stake, having a lawyer guide you through the complexities of the legal system can save you time, hassle, and possibly a lot of grief in the long run.

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.
