St. Louis Administrative Law and Professional Licensing Matters

“The State of Missouri / POST Commission initiated an administrative proceeding against me to revoke my police officer license. I initially hired a general practice attorney to help me with my case. After that attorney made a number of mistakes and I was at serious risk of losing my license, I changed course and hired Mr. Dolley to represent me. Mr. Dolley did an excellent job presenting my case before the Administrative Hearing Commission and POST Commission and he was able to turn an ordered revocation of my license into a dismissal without discipline and wholly defeated the allegations made against my license. Without the administrative law knowledge of Mr. Dolley, I would have lost my license to be a police officer in Missouri.”

Hiring legal counsel that practices according to the differing rules and procedures in administrative cases is important. Many clients are unaware of their right to documents and pre-trial discovery as part of the administrative process. Clients are also commonly surprised to learn that prior to an administrative hearing due process requires that the factual basis for discipline must be set out in sufficient detail to apprise a party of what is at issue as part of the administrative case. The differing rules for administrative and licensing cases also mean that different types of evidence are admissible that would not be permitted in a courtroom setting. Attorney Kevin J. Dolley will provide you with an effective strategy for presenting your case and winning at the administrative level. Individual employees and business owners entrust Attorney Kevin J. Dolley to defend them in administrative cases with their careers and licenses on the line.

Cases Before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission

The Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission (AHC) in Jefferson City, Missouri is an administrative commission that hears contested administrative cases involving a variety of professional and business license cases. The Commission hears the administrative case and thereafter makes findings and recommendations to specific Missouri agencies that complete the decision-making process for each particular case. The Commissioners for the AHC hear cases in which evidence is presented in a trial-like manner and witnesses are subject to direct and cross-examination as part of the contested case. The decisions of the Administrative Hearing Commission are subject to judicial review in the circuit courts of Missouri. Missouri Department of Social Services along with related state agencies such as the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and Missouri (MO) HealthNet Division adjudicate contested cases before the Administrative Hearing Commission involving issues relating to Medicare, Medicaid or other compliance issues. Cases before the Missouri AHC relate to complaints directed from the Board of Registration for the Healing Arts, POST Commission, Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Board of Real Estate Commission, Veterinary Board License, Car Dealer License, Committee of Psychologists, Alcohol and Tobacco Control and Department of Insurance.

The POST Commission

The POST Commission is the administrative agency that hears administrative cases in which a peace (police) officer's license is subject to discipline based upon the decision of the Administrative Hearing Commission. The POST Commission has the ability to take no action, suspend or revoke the license of peace officers in the State of Missouri.
