Government Law Firm

If you are in trouble with the State of Kansas, your county government or City Hall, you can easily find yourself on the losing end of the fight unless you have help defending yourself.   In the “old days” a person could usually handle problems themselves.  However, under the state’s administrative procedures act, state matters are handled much more formally with strict rules and deadlines.  State administrative procedures are now very similar to court proceedings.  If you find yourself in trouble with a government agency, you need to start defending yourself right away.  If you wait too long before retaining an attorney, you may already have lost the fight or put yourself into an uphill battle.


Government agency attorneys represent those agencies.  They are not there to help you or look out for your interests.  You need someone to help you and look out for your interests.
