Liquor License Violations, Hearings and Closings

A New York liquor violations attorney for when you have been cited

If you own a 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. The Law Office of Stacy L. Weiss, PLLC understands this can be a frightening time and is prepared to help you get through it. We have dedicated more than a decade to assisting businesses who have been cited for violations by the New York State Liquor Authority (NYSLA).

Failure to contest a violation properly can quickly lead to problems for you and your business, including forced closing. Too often, businesses choose not to fight a violation citation, believing that settling is the easiest and fastest way to move on. But a history of violations is a major cause of license revocations and closures. Your best option is to consult an experienced New York liquor violations lawyer like Stacy L. Weiss.

Unique insight from a New York liquor license attorney in Manhattan

New York liquor license 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.
