Administrative Law

Some Courts require that a litigant “exhaust administrative remedies” before filing a lawsuit in the Court. “Failure to exhaust administrative remedies” is one of the easiest defenses to a lawsuit that will quickly get your matter dismissed (thrown out of Court). The Merritt Law Clinic has been assisting clients for over 35 years to navigate the many informal and formal complaint processes that might have to be met before going to Court. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), and many public entities have complaint processes that should be utilized before using the Court as a last resort. Arbitration is sometimes an alternative to court action. Call to discuss your legal matter with an attorney who knows the rules.
