Administrative law is composed of the rules, regulations and procedures established by federal and state agencies to accomplish their missions. While these “regs” may be created with the best intentions, they may seriously threaten your constitutional right to due process. At The Pearson Law Firm, in Oxford, we have 29 years of combined experience appearing before numerous federal and state agencies, including:
U.S. and Mississippi Environmental Protection Agencies
U.S. Department of Energy
U.S. Department of the Interior
U.S. Department of Agriculture
U.S. Department of Commerce
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Mississippi Department of Human Services
U.S. Department of Homeland Security
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
U.S. Food and Drug Administration
Mississippi Education Department
When you face an administrative hearing, you need the assistance of a skilled attorney who has experience with the specific agency involved.
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 Pearson Law Firm on your side.
Whether you are a restaurateur, a surgeon or an architect, your license is your livelihood. At The Pearson Law Firm, we have represented physicians, engineers, dentists, insurance brokers, architects and many other professionals in hearings before Mississippi state boards, such as:
Architects Licensure Boards
Contractors State License Boards
Departments of Insurance

A disciplinary hearing is a serious matter for any license holder. As soon as you have notice of a licensing board investigation aimed at you, contact a capable administrative law attorney immediately.
