Hawaii Administrative Law Attorneys Protect Your Due Process Rights

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. When you face an administrative hearing, you need the assistance of a skilled attorney who has experience with the specific agency involved. At Belles Graham LLP we have more than 150 years of combined experience appearing before numerous United States federal and Hawaii state agencies, including:

  • U.S. and Hawaii 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 Hawaii Department of Human Services
  • U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • U.S. Food and Drug Administration
  • Hawaii Education Department

Guarding against unchecked power
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. The attorneys at Belles Graham LLP are on your side.

Defending professional and business licenses before state boards
Whether you are a restaurateur, a surgeon or an architect, your license is your livelihood. Belles Graham LLP has represented contractors, physicians, engineers, dentists, insurance brokers, architects and many other professionals in hearings before Hawaii state boards, such as:

  • Architects Licensure Board
  • Contractors State License Board
  • Dental Board
