Has your child been suspended from school?
Has the TABC fined you, or denied or revoked your liquor license?
Is your Texas Driver's License at risk for suspension?
Is your Professional License (LCDC, Interpreter for the Deaf, Nurse) at risk of suspension?
Is your business out of compliance with State agency requirements?
These and a slew of other matters are handled and resolved through an Administrative process, as distinguished from the more commonly known forums such as Civil or Criminal Courts.
Administrative law encompasses laws and legal principles governing the administration and regulation of government agencies (both Federal and state).
For example, Independent School Districts (HISD, etc.), Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), and the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission (TABC) are all Administrative agencies, with the power to suspend, revoke, and reinstate licenses and reprimand and fine individuals and businesses under their jurisdiction.
While each agency operates under different internal rules, all are required to give you due process, meaning notice and a hearing prior to affecting your rights.
