From licensing to participation in public forums, as well as cases of expropriation and eminent domain, the attorneys at the Smith Law Firm can guide you through the legal process, providing you with the counsel you need so that your personal or business concerns are thoroughly protected.
Our Louisiana attorneys can guide you through:
What is Governmental/Administrative Law?
Administrative law encompasses the laws and legal principles governing the administration and regulation of both state, local, and federal government agencies. Agencies are delegated power by Congress or the state legislature to act as the entities responsible for carrying out certain duties of the executive branch. Agencies are created via the mandates of statutes. Those agencies then oftentimes create their own rules or procedures. Businesses and persons then have the opportunity to interpret and abide by those new rules while agencies are granted the authority to enforce those new rules.
At the Smith Law Firm, we provide representation and litigation services in state and federal courts. We will provide counsel to government entities on issues like ethics, civil service, public procurement policies, and public records requests.
How the Smith Law Firm Can Help
Litigation against the government and administrative agencies is much different from litigation against private individuals or businesses.
Because of the complexity of these situations, our team will combine our knowledge of all aspects of the law, including land use, and environmental laws, to come to the best possible resolution.
