State and Local Government

State and local governments regulate businesses, professions, and citizens alike. A complaint can set in place an investigation, a demand for payment or suspension of a license or permit, or force a hearing before an agency, board, or court. Regardless of whether you face a zoning dispute, the taking of right-of-way, or mark on your license or certificate, before agreeing to the government-suggested remedy, consult a lawyer. Your livelihood or property may be at risk.
