Agency Representation & Appeals


Not all disputes are resolved in a Court of law. Federal and State agencies regulate particular industries and aspects of all of our lives. Our lawyers regularly litigate before these agencies and appeal agency decisions to the courts under the state and federal administrative procedure acts (including c. 30A), and certiorari and mandamus actions.

  • Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) (Federal)

  • Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (ABCC)

  • Board of Bar Overseers (BBO)
