Take the right approach to California administrative hearings

Insurance agents, realtors and other professionals licensed in California are subject to the state's administrative process. Those who receive notice of an administrative complaint may request a hearing through the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).

The first thing we want you to know is that this hearing is a formal legal proceeding, which means that you need to take a serious approach to the process. Choosing to look upon an administrative hearing as a casual event can place your license in serious jeopardy. In the aftermath, building a professional license defense may help you get your career back on track, but it is always better to protect your license before you lose it.

Like other legal proceedings, administrative hearings follow strict procedures. While the OAH does not require you to find legal representation for the hearing, it will likely benefit your case to do so. Some of the benefits of acquiring attorney representation include the following.

  • Experience dealing with the OAH
  • Knowledge of California's professional licensing laws and requirements
  • Understanding of how the laws pertain to your specific case
  • Experience gathering evidence to support your defense
  • Ongoing advocacy throughout the duration of the formal proceedings

Arguably, the best way to approach an administrative hearing is to view the procedure as a legal event that can affect your ability to continue working. Viewing the matter as a serious process helps you prepare yourself mentally and procedurally. In turn, this could improve your chances of defending your professional license.
