Shepherdstown 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 Shepherdstown 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.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • 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.

How to Find the Right Attorney

  • Determine the area of law that relates to your issue. Attorneys specialize in specific practice areas around legal issues within the broad field of law.
  • Seek out recommendations from friends, family, and colleagues. A successful attorney or practice will typically have many satisfied clients.
  • Set up consultation appointments to get a better understanding of your case as well as gauge your comfort level with different attorneys. Find the attorney who is the right fit for your needs.
