Whether you are starting a liquor store, a hotel where you will be serving alcohol, or a brewery, liquor license lawyer can help you out.

Mitigating Liquor License Violations
In the process of doing business, you might find yourself in the unfortunate event that you have violated your liquor license. It might be that you have served or sold alcohol to minors, sold liquor past the stipulated time, sold multiple drinks at a fixed price, or you have been nabbed in a sting operation. The liquor license lawyers at the Spodek Law Group have the experience to help you resolve any license suspensions as well as help you avoid future violations that could lead to a revocation of your license.
Defending Your Liquor License
The ABC usually conducts random sting operations, and you could be nabbed in one. They will most likely send an undercover agent seeking to buy a drink, if you sell to them without verifying their age, you could get the license suspended or revoked depending on the number of strikes you have. Other times they will send a minor and should you make the mistake of supplying them with alcohol, you are done for good. We will help you in understanding the sting operation conduct, and if the undercover agent or minor did not follow it to the letter, you might have a chance at defending your liquor license.
At the Spodek Law Group, our liquor license lawyers have a high success rate in defending liquor licenses. Should you get a notice that you have violated the regulations of your liquor license, contact us immediately. We can help you with issues that might bar you from doing business on long island.
