Legal Counsel Before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission

The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley represents individual employees and businesses before the Administrative Hearing Commission ("AHC"). The AHC adjudicates original actions and appeals regarding numerous administrative agencies of the State of Missouri. These cases commonly involve professional licensing, state tax, Medicaid and the Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission.

Understanding the Process before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission

Each case before the Missouri Administrative Hearing Commission is initiated by the filing of a Complaint before the Commission located in Jefferson City, Missouri. An Answer to the Complaint is required within 30 days of service of the Complaint. Prior to hearing of the case before a Commissioner, the parties are permitted to conduct discovery, including serving interrogatory questions, requests for production and requests for admissions on the opposing party and filing written Motions directed to the Commission for ruling. The discovery process allows for the parties to make written requests for documents and to conduct depositions of the parties and witnesses prior to hearing of the case on the merits.

Cases before the Administrative Hearing Commission can be determined by hearing on the merits, through a motion for summary disposition, through settlement or dismissal of the Complaint. Following hearing of the cases and submission by the parties of proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law, a written decision by the Administrative Hearing Commission is submitted to the parties. The party aggrieved by the decision may appeal the decision to the appropriate circuit court.

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, testimony and documents at trial by the parties. In many contested cases, the Commission makes a decision as to whether a violation of an administrative rule has occurred. The Commission, in such cases, only determines whether or not a violation has occurred. The Missouri administrative agency then commonly determines the appropriate discipline or sanction if a violation is found by the Commissioner.
