Liquor License & the Law
Protecting Your Rights
The excitement of opening a nightclub or market, or starting a brewpub or winery is often diminished by the realities of the paperwork, complex layers of regulations and satisfying the requirements of several government agencies. A winery, distiller or brewer has to comply with regulations at the federal, state and local levels. An off-sale or on-sale retailer must meet the requirements of the ABC, local government, police and neighborhood groups. Your planning needs to account for these demands. Anticipating delays can save you considerable money and aggravation.
Once you are up and running, non-compliance can mean penalties that harm your business, or, in some cases, your license can be taken away completely.
At the Law Office of Richard D. Warren, we understand that your livelihood, and perhaps your dreams, depend on keeping your business open and your liquor license in full compliance. Rick Warren is an attorney who focuses his legal work on California liquor license issues.

Liquor Licensing ABCs
Most of the California liquor license regulations come from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). Understanding and properly implementing the rules and regulations can be a major obstacle for many licensees and license seekers. Fortunately, you do not need to do it alone.
From A to B to C, our law office will help you obtain your liquor license and keep your liquor license in compliance. If you already have a liquor license and you are accused of a violation, we can help you. We can even assist you with complicated issues, like a criminal accusation outside of your business that affects your licensure. When you have an issue with your liquor license, we make sure to remove barriers like legal access and language limitations.
