Civil & Administrative Litigation
Rankin & Sultan handles selected civil matters, especially when they resemble or coincide with criminal matters. Most often, it is our commitment to defending individual liberties and fighting against government misconduct that brings us into the civil arena.
We have extensive experience in representing individuals before the Sex Offender Registry Board, professionals and companies facing disciplinary and regulatory proceedings, convicted offenders before the Parole Board, and students in academic disciplinary proceedings. In the academic context, disciplinary proceedings resemble and often coincide with criminal proceedings, and we are adept at handling all aspects of administrative or hybrid cases for students and faculty.
