I have an informal settlement conference/show-cause proceeding scheduled before a board or agency. Do I need representation?

You are not required to have legal counsel with you but it is in your best interest. Moreover, you will be prosecuted by an attorney and another attorney will most likely be counseling and advising the agency. Based on this fact alone there will be two (2) attorneys on the other side representing the board or agency and if you are not adequately represented you are at a serious disadvantage. Furthermore, the statutes and the rules are complex, so even if you have not committed misconduct or have mitigating evidence to offer, proving it up pursuant to statute or agency rule requires legal ability and experience which may lie beyond your ability.
