Join us on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, 3:00–5:00PM for a CLE on Representing Homeowners in Administrative Hearings.
Each week in Brooklyn, the Department of Buildings (DOB) brings hundreds of cases against small homeowners before the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH), the City’s administrative law court which provides a neutral forum for these hearings. For the most part, these homeowners are self-represented, face steep fines, and find themselves at a disadvantage because they are not aware of the defenses available to them.
This training will enable attorneys, law graduates and law students to assist and represent homeowners at these hearings. The training will cover some of the most common violations and their defenses.
