  Attorneys at Law serving Ocala, Florida Since 1974


  Administrative Law

Administrative law concerns itself with the administration of city, county, state and federal government agencies’ rules, regulations, applications, licenses, permits, hearings, appeals and decision-making. Examples of administrative agencies include the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR), the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the Department of Children and Families (DCF). The attorneys at BMAK, although operating out of our offices in Ocala, Marion County, are well versed not only in Ocala, Marion County administrative law, but also those of other cities, counties and agencies throughout the state; and we have worked with those agencies. Administrative law may be proactive or defensive. In other words it may be a situation where a client seeks a change to an Ocala (or another city in Marion County) or State ordinance, regulation or law. Our attorneys often appear before boards in Ocala and Marion County dealing with zoning issues and code violations. Conversely, it may be a defensive issue. Such an issue occurs when some administrative body alleges a violation of an ordinance, code or regulation. Some examples, of this are where Ocala or some other city alleges a violation of its codes relative to the operation of a business or zoning. Both at the Marion County level and the Florida state level it may involve an allegation of violations of certain environmental regulations, occupational safety regulations, or a host of other codes, regulations or ordinances; we have handled a broad range of these issues. Whatever the administrative question, our staff of attorneys, paralegals and investigators will work diligently to resolve the dispute. This is true whether the question arises in Ocala, Marion County or any other city or county in the state of Florida.
