What is Administrative Law?

Administrative law, when you get down to the nuts and bolts of it, determines the power, organizations, and administrative duties of the administrative authorities. These laws include rulemaking, legal liabilities, and the power of the ordinary courts. For the most part, administrative law is a branch of public law and deals with matters and problems that involve government and individuals. And it determines the power of the quasi-judicial authorities to enforce the law.

Oftentimes, administrative law is not codified law, which means judges can change it depending on the situation. This is where we come in as attorneys who handle administrative law matters. We will represent you and show up in court to help you with your legal woes. We have a great understanding of the changing nature of administrative law and how to ably combat it.

And it is often the result of an agency created to deal with issues that need a more flexible approach.
