New York / NYC Liquor Authority Violation lawyers

Violating state liquor license laws in New York is a serious crime. Liquor license laws are in place to protect everyone, and that’s why they are taken so seriously. The laws protect minors from being able to go into a public establishment and purchase and consume alcohol. It protects drivers from being on the road with other drivers who are impaired and more likely to cause an accident because they had too much to drink, and they are designed to protect the business owners who do serve alcohol or sell it at their place of business.

If an allegation is made against your business that you’re not using your liquor license properly, it’s a devastating situation. It can cause serious problems in your life, and it can mean your business faces fines, penalties, and even closure or loss of your license. If you are accused of using your liquor license incorrectly, you must know how to handle the situation as quickly and efficiently as possible.

How Violations Work

New York State law uses various methods of punishment when someone violates a liquor license law. If this is the first time your business is accused of misusing this license or engaging in illegal practice with the sale or service of alcohol, you might face a fine and a slap on the wrist. The state is very fair with punishment because lawmakers recognize it’s not always easy to know what’s going on or whether something is amiss.

For example, you could be accused of selling liquor to a minor because you have a new employee who wants to impress some girls who aren’t quite of age. You might have a situation in which an underage person came into your establishment and used a good fake ID to have service. You don’t know these things are happening, and sometimes it’s nothing more than misrepresentation. You probably walk away with a sanction and a fine and a warning to never let this happen again.

If you are a repeat offender, the punishments get worse with each accusation. Some business owners continue to do business incorrectly and abuse their liquor license, and they will pay when this happens. Each time they violate a law the punishment is worse, and it also depends on what the violation and accusation consist of. There are some instances in which a business does something so many times or so bad that the state simply revokes their license and no longer permits the establishment to carry a liquor license.

New York / Queens / NYC / Brooklyn / Bronx / Long Island Liquor Violations Lawyers

If your business is accused of violating state liquor license laws, it’s time for you to call an attorney and learn your rights. As a business owner, you have rights you can enact to protect yourself. You can work on a defense if you were unaware what was going on in your business because someone made a mistake or did not do their job correctly. There are options for you, but you must know what they are as well as how to use them to your advantage.

An attorney can help you minimize fines, protect your license, and make the correct decisions in the future. Your attorney is here to read the accusations, understand what they mean, and explain to you what happened. The legal jargon used when there is an accusation made is often difficult to understand by those who don’t work in any area of the law, and that’s why attorneys are so important.

Let your attorney file a response and handle this situation from start to finish. You might need to go into your business and do some housekeeping to ensure this doesn’t happen again, and it’s easier for you to handle this situation when your attorney is dealing with the legalities. An attorney is here for you, and you should call one right away if you are accused of misuse of your state liquor license.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
