Morristown NJ Liquor License Attorneys

Towns like Florham Park, Mendham, Morristown and Parsippany are ripe with liquor license holders. The Alcoholic Beverage Industry is one of the best kept secrets as the market is nearly “recession-proof.” Individuals and businesses are constantly trying to start-up successful bars, restaurants and liquor stores in an effort to cash-in on the constantly growing consumer demands. However, many new entrants into the liquor industry fail to apprise themselves of the rules and regulations. This can lead to administrative charges being filed by the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control under a Notice of Charges letter. If this happens, your license to sell alcoholic beverages may be subject to a suspension or possible revocation. When this happens, it is imperative that you seek out qualified legal counsel to defend you in these charges. Failure to act correctly can have serious ramifications, beyond just the embarrassment of an ABC violation. Contact the attorneys at Proetta & Oliver to speak with Former New Jersey Deputy Attorney General for the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, William C. Fay, IV. Mr. Fay spent his career prosecuting, regulating and enforcing New Jersey’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Act. This experience makes him uniquely qualified to represent you and your interests in any matter against your local municipal council, liquor license transfer or criminal charges. Call 732-858-5857 today and schedule your consultation with Mr. Fay and learn what we can do to help you in your time of need.  

What is the NJ Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control?

The Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (Commonly referred to as “ABC”) is the branch of State Government that regulates the manufacture, distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages within the State of New Jersey. In 1933, the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution gave each state the right to decide whether to allow alcoholic beverages, and, if so, set up a regulatory scheme. New Jersey was one of the first States to enact statutory regulations under what is known as the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act. This Act created what was then known as the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (now known as the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control) and established the leadership position of Commissioner. Later revisions to New Jersey’s Constitution resulted in changes the the statutes and regualtions that currently control New Jersey’s Alcoholic Beverage Industry. Alcoholic Beverage Control was absorbed into and became a division of the Department of Law and Public Safety under the New Jersey Attorney General. Currently, ABC is headed by a Director, whose position requires that he oversee and enforce the regulations as they interact between private entities and the commerce of alcoholic beverages, pursuant to NJSA 33:1-11.
