At the Law Office of Kathleen L. Morgan, I take pride in offering low cost personalized and professional legal representation.

Administrative Law Services

I specialize in administrative law and have extensive hearing experience.  I represent licensees in all aspects of administrative proceedings, including appeals of citations, settlement of formal administrative proceedings, full hearings and post hearing proceedings. I provide an honest assessment of cases so that you can make an informed decision about your case.  You should not have to navigate the administrative process alone.  I strongly advocate for my clients during settlement, hearings and post hearing proceedings.

I have over 20 years practicing administrative law.  As a former attorney for the State of California I have a unique understanding of the process and the factors that determine outcomes of hearings. 

I represent clients in following administrative legal situations:

  • Complaint Investigations
  • License Application and Denials

  • Responding to Temporary Suspension Orders, Accusations, Statement of Issues, Employee Exclusion Actions, and Notice of Adverse Actions
  • Settlement Proceedings and Negotiations
  • Administrative Hearings
    State Personnel Board Hearings
