Administrative law is composed of the rules, regulations and procedures established by federal and state agencies to accomplish their missions. While these “regs” may have been created with the best intentions, they may seriously threaten your livelihood and Consititutional right to due process. When you face an administrative hearing, you need the assistance of a skilled attorney who has experience with the specific agency involved. Attorney Charles E. Buri has more than 40 years of experience appearing before numerous federal and Arizona state agencies, including:
|U.S. Department of Agriculture
Arizona Board of Nursing
Arizona Board of Podiatric Examiners
Arizona Board of Physicians Assistants
Arizona Board of Liquor Licenses and Control
Arizona Medical Board
|U.S. Postal Service
Arizona Board of Osteopathic Examiners
Arizona Board of Chiropractice Examiners
Arizona Board of Naturopathic Physicians
Arizona Board of Dental Examiners
Arizona Department of Insurance
Arizona Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers
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 set forth in the federal Administrative Procedure Act and Arizona’s equivalent. Moreover, federal and state agencies have the power to adjudicate, so citizens in a dispute with an agency may have their cases heard by an office of administrative hearings or before the very department with which they are in conflict! In a system where an agency exercises executive, legislative, and judiciary powers all rolled together, you need a strong advocate on your side.
Whether you are a physician, an insurance agent, a bar owner, or a lottery retailer, your license is your livelihood and you need to protect it. Mr. Buri represents professionals and businesses in disputes with their regulatory boards. 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.
