LIQUOR LICENSE ATTORNEY - SERVING NEW YORK FOR 15 YEARS
If you are interested in opening a bar, tavern, nightclub, cabaret or any venue that serves or sells alcohol anywhere in New York State, it is very easy to find yourself tangled up in the complex web of laws and regulations. To obtain a New York State liquor license, you need the proper guidance and advice from a lawyer well versed in the hospitality industry and knowledgeable with the Alcohol Beverage Control Laws of New York State. As a member of the New York State Restaurant Association and as an attorney practicing in the hospitality field obtaining various liquor licenses and permits for almost 15 years, I understand the system and can help you through the process of obtaining a New York State Liquor License from start to finish.
The advantage of using an attorney is we can self-certify liquor license applications. This means that the application approval process is expedited by the New York State Liquor Authority, Licensing can take several months, but with Attorney Certification, it can be reduced by several weeks.
After you have been issued your license, it is important to strictly obey the rules of the New York State Liquor Authority. Failure to adhere to their guidelines can lead to citations and possible revocation of your liquor license. While the practice focuses on liquor license acquisition, the office also handles liquor license violations and hearings, as well as other issues affecting your business.
Attorney Stacy L. Weiss is a retired New York City Police Detective with more than 20 years on the force. She served in the Civil Enforcement Unit for several years, working on many nuisance abatement cases involving violations and closings. This hands-on experience Stacy acquired during that time gives her a distinct advantage over other New York liquor violations lawyers. If you own a bar, café, cabaret or other establishment and find yourself in violation of New York's liquor license codes, not only can you face fines and revocation of your license, but you can even face closure of the business you worked so hard for. Stacy understands this can be a frightening time and is prepared to help you get through it. She has dedicated almost fifteen years to assisting businesses who have been cited for violations by the New York State Liquor Authority.
