An attorney that represents you or your company in an administrative Texas Money Service Business, Money Transmission, or bank charter license enforcement case, can only be effective if that attorney is also a Money Service Business and/or Money Transmission and/or bank charter compliance lawyer, who is knowledgeable in TX Department of Banking (DOB), CFPB, FTC, and other applicable Texas and federal Money Service Business, Money Transmission laws, and banking regulations. A general administrative lawyer that defends all types of Texas licensees (nurses, healthcare professionals, barbers, cosmetologists, locksmiths, manicurists, etc.) is highly unlikely to also regularly practice Money Service Business, Money Transmission, banking. and financial services laws. Being familiar with the procedural aspects of the Texas State Office of Administrative Hearings and court procedures, such as administrative appeals to the Travis County District Court, is only one aspect of effective administrative representation. The other aspect, that is even more important, is deep knowledge of and experience in the substantive laws that governs the specific license or area of regulation such as Money Service Business, Money Transmission, and banking laws. THE LAW OFFICES OF ALAN ABERGEL, P.C. (“LOAA“) practices Money Service Business, Money Transmission, and banking (as well as financial services regulation) compliance and administrative defense.
