Administrative Law

We master the complexities so they don’t master you.

When you’re faced with a matter that’s between you and a state agency, you need an experienced, responsive advocate you can count on. Someone to guide you through the maze of regulations that so often is a part of administrative law. We represent businesses, institutions and individuals at administrative and judicial proceedings conducted by North Carolina’s state agencies and boards.

As long as we have been in practice, administrative law has been a part of our practice. By our diligence and hard work, we have earned the respect of the people who represent or work for agencies that regulate matters of health, education, commerce and much more. We understand their workings. We know how to resolve matters efficiently and effectively, either through early negotiation or in formal hearings.

We are prepared to appear in matters pending before the Office of Administrative Hearings, those heard directly by agencies themselves, or in any judicial review that is needed after initial hearings. We have assisted property owners and developers who are in negotiation with any of the divisions within the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources including Coastal Management, Land Resources and Water Quality.

We also have assisted operators of child care centers with matters before the Division of Child Development, and assisted living centers dealing on issues pending before the Adult Care Licensure section of the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.

We handle complex matters before the North Carolina Utilities Commission. We are also experienced with purchase and contract matters, property tax appeals, disputes arising from requests for proposal (RFPs) and invitations to bid issued by state agencies, prosecution and defense of claims before the Employment Security Commission, and fines and penalties associated with state administration of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).

At Young Moore and Henderson, we also represent individuals in proceedings before North Carolina occupational licensing boards. For more information, click here.
