Liquor License Defense

Stores with liquor licenses in Tennessee can find themselves in trouble if they are caught selling alcohol to minors. In the past, liquor stores typically faced fines for sales of alcoholic beverages to underage customers. However, the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) increasingly is seeking suspensions of liquor licenses for second sales to minor within a one-year period, even if the establishment was making a good faith effort to prevent underage sales.

At the law office of Rob McKinney, Attorney at Law, in Nashville, Tennessee, we recognize how important it is to keep your liquor-by-the-drink or on-premise consumption license. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your options if your liquor license has been suspended or if you are facing suspension. We will work diligently to protect your license and your livelihood.

In addition to accusations of serving alcoholic beverages to minors, we also defend liquor establishment from violations such as:

  • On-premises consumption of alcohol by a minor
  • Offering unlimited drinks for a fixed price
  • Awarding a drink as a prize in a game or contest
  • Serving two or more drinks to a consumer at one time after 10 p.m.

Alcohol licensing attorney Rob McKinney represents retail liquor stores, restaurants, bars and hotels on a wide variety of alcoholic beverage compliance issues before the Tennessee ABC.
