Administrative Law

Wilson Morton Downs Administrative LawWilson, Morton & Downs represents clients before administrative agencies of the local, state and federal governments in civil investigative, regulatory and enforcement actions. Administrative cases typically involve both an investigative phase and a hearing phase.  These investigations require in-depth communications with federal, state and local investigators and attorneys, so obtaining quality legal representation early in the investigative phase is vitally important to securing as smooth a process as possible.

Administrative hearings are typically conducted by hearing officers or boards as opposed to judges and juries, but the stakes can be just as high for the parties involved. Such hearings might deal with employment discrimination, wage and hour investigations, unemployment compensation claims and employment termination hearings. WMD attorneys have a unique understanding of the administrative process and applicable procedures and are able to help you reach the best possible result for your administrative case.
