  • Administrative Litigation

    Although government bodies are established to serve their citizens, it is not uncommon for government entities to sometimes act in ways that infringe the rights of people and companies. When the rights of citizens are infringed by administrative activities, decisive legal action often is required to remedy the situation. This may require filing administrative remedy requests, conducting an administrative trial and/or proceeding with an administrative lawsuit.
