“It’s important to have an attorney who is quick on his or her feet to represent you at an administrative hearing.  Unlike a court hearing or trial, often there is no pre-hearing discovery or disclosure of witnesses.  You will not know beforehand what witnesses or documentary evidence the other side will present.  Benjamin Law Offices routinely appears before administrative agencies to represent our clients, and our attorneys are comfortable responding to anything the other side presents even without advance warning.”
