Utah Administrative Law Attorney Protects Your Due Process Rights

Experienced lawyer represents clients in the Salt Lake City 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 the Law Office of W Mathew Schiffgen, I represent individuals and businesses in the Salt Lake City area and throughout Utah in administrative law actions, advocating for their rights before government entities.

In any administrative hearing, it's important to retain skilled representation from an attorney who has experience with the specific agency involved. I put my 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 the Law Office of W Mathew Schiffgen 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 the Law Office of W Mathew Schiffgen, I have represented physicians, engineers, dentists, insurance brokers, architects and many other professionals in hearings before Utah state boards, such as:

  • Architects' licensure boards
  • Contractors' state license boards
  • Medical and dental boards
  • Departments of insurance
  • Liquor control 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 a capable administrative law attorney immediately.
