Legal Counsel Before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission

The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley represents individuals and businesses before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission ("AHC"). The AHC conducts hearings and issues decisions in cases involving a state agency or board and individuals or businesses. These cases commonly involve professional licensing, professional license discipline, state tax, and Medicaid provider issues and include appeals of decisions made by state agencies and boards. If you receive a complaint from a Missouri board or administrative agency, contact the Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley for experienced, aggressive representation.

Understanding the Process before the AHC

Cases before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission begin with the filing of a Complaint. After the opposing party is served with the Complaint and files an Answer, the parties conduct discovery serving interrogatories, requests for production of documents and requests for admissions on the opposing party. Parties may also subpoena documents, depose witnesses, and file motions if discovery disputes arise. The discovery process allows the parties to discover and fully understand the facts prior to a hearing on the merits.

Cases before the AHC are determined through a hearing on the merits, a motion for summary decision, settlement, or dismissal of the Complaint. Hearings on the merits are held in Jefferson City, Kansas City, or St. Louis by one of five appointed Commissioners. Parties may call witnesses, submit evidence, testify on their own behalf, file motions, and make arguments. Following the hearing, each party submits proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law and the AHC then issues a written decision. The party aggrieved by the decision may appeal to the circuit court of the county in which he or she resides or to the circuit court of Cole County.

Cases before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission are commonly referred to as contested cases. Contested cases proceed in a trial-like manner and require proper presentment of evidence and testimony. In many contested cases, the AHC decides only whether a violation of a statute or administrative rule has occurred. The Missouri administrative agency or board then conducts a second hearing to determine the appropriate discipline or sanction.
