In civil appeals, John Michael Jensen has represented clients whose favorable judgments are appealed to a District Court of Appeals.

John Jensen has successfully litigated Petitions for Writs of Mandate, Writs of Administrative Mandamus, and handled civil appeals to the Superior Court and the District Court of Appeals. Petitions for Writs of Administrative Mandamus challenge the legal or factual underpinnings of a government decision or the government adoption of an Administrative Law Judge’s Proposed Decision. A Writ of Mandate seeks to compel a government agency or inferior tribunal to act according to the law.
2. Administrative Hearings
Many of the larger California state agencies are subject to the Administrative Procedures Act (APA). Under the APA, an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) from the State Office of Administrative Hearings initially hears the administrative dispute.
In the process, we write briefs, elicit testimony, examine witnesses, and produce a record, laying the groundwork facts, arguments, and issues for the current dispute. In any appeal, the administrative process is an important foundation to the resolution of many disputes.
John Michael Jensen has successfully resolved issues involving California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), the California State Department of Health Services, and state and local government entities.
In formal administrative proceedings involving the state government, issues involving statutory or contractual interpretation usually arise.
