Thorough Understanding Personalized Service

Administrative Proceedings

State and local agencies have the authority to make decisions that can have significant consequences for both businesses and individuals. For example, the state Department of Consumer Protection licenses and regulates many professionals, including pharmacists, electricians, home improvement contractors, professional engineers, land surveyors, real estate professionals, health clubs and more. The state Department of Public Health licenses and regulates day cares, acupuncturists, doctors, dentists, nurses, therapists, social workers, nail technicians and more. Local planning and zoning and inland-wetland commissions issue building and wetlands permits and consider applications for variances and zone changes. The state Freedom of Information Commission hears complaints about the denial of access to public documents. The state Department of Labor holds hearings on employees' rights to unemployment compensation and investigates employers' compliance with wage and hour laws. Both the state Department of Revenue Services and local tax assessors make decisions about your tax liability. 

Each of these agencies makes decisions every day that impact the lives of residents and businesses, and they are not bound by the formal procedures of our court system. The standards of evidence are different, your right to present testimony varies and your rights to appeal are very narrow. Whether you are applying for a license or permit or defending against an agency's attempt to revoke a license or take other disciplinary measures, you should consult with an attorney experienced in administrative practice so you know your rights are being protected. 

Attorney Emily Gianquinto has experience with matters in front of local commissions and boards as well as many Connecticut agencies, including:

  • Freedom of Information Commission
  • Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities
  • Department of Consumer Protection
  • Department of Revenue Services
  • Department of Public Health
  • Siting Council
  • Public Utility Regulatory Agency
  • Department of Labor
  • Department of Environmental Protection
  • Department of Social Services

She also has experience appealing from decisions of many state and local agencies, in situations where she represented the client in the administrative proceeding or in others where she was engaged just for the appeal.
