Quasi-judicial Proceedings

We regularly appear in quasi-judicial proceedings before the City Council, County Commissioners, Planning Boards, Boards of Adjustment, and Appearance Commission.

Both State and municipal law are mandating that more and more matters must be approved in quasi-judicial proceedings. This type of proceeding may be held before different types of boards including City and Town Councils, Planning Boards, County Commissioners, Boards of Adjustment, Appearance Commission and Historic District Commissions. While not as formal as a court proceeding, a quasi-judicial proceeding does require these bodies to hold hearings,  ascertain the facts, and draw legal conclusions from the presentation of evidence, including sworn testimony. Although an individual party to a proceeding can represent himself or herself, the Mattox Law Firm can enhance your proceeding by developing strategies, articulating your case and presenting evidence in a quasi-judicial proceeding. If property is held by an entity, legal counsel is usually required. We regularly appear as counsel in quasi-judicial proceedings before many governmental bodies.
