Maryland Administrative and Environmental Law Attorneys
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. Gibbs and Haller attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience appearing before numerous U.S. federal and Maryland state agencies, including:
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 at Gibbs and Haller on your side.

The best time to address environmental concerns is prior to enforcement by a government agency. Gibbs and Haller work closely with your company, engineers and scientists to ensure environmental compliance. If your company is unfairly accused of contamination or noncompliance, they defend your company against unjust regulation and assist you in the mitigation of damages.
