WHO CAN ANSWER QUESTIONS IF I AM NOT SURE WHAT TO DO?
The Hearing Examiner's office can answer procedural questions, explain the process, and describe how hearings are usually run and what to expect. The Hearing Examiner's office cannot assist with, or give advice on how to put together your presentation, what questions to ask witnesses, whom to select as a witness, whether to get a lawyer to help, or handle similar questions; because providing such advice or assistance could be interpreted as advocating for your position or giving legal advice.


During a hearing, you can raise procedural questions before the Hearing Examiner. Before and after a hearing, such questions should be submitted to the Hearing Examiner's staff, rather than directly to the Hearing Examiner. This is necessary to avoid violating the prohibition on communicating with the Hearing Examiner outside the actual hearing. Such communications are referred to as "ex parte contacts" and are prohibited by law. Please see County Resolution No. 96-0294.
