Tampa Administrative Actions Attorney

Any time a company violates local, state, or federal alcoholic beverage law, they will face severe consequences. Even if you or someone in the company made an honest mistake, such as unintentionally serving alcohol to someone who was underage, it could be very damaging to the entire business. Due to this, you need a skilled Tampa administrative actions attorney on your side. Our experienced attorney can provide sound advice so you know what to expect and the solutions that can minimize any negative result while also protecting your business.

The Importance of the Notification

If your company has violated any alcoholic beverage law, you will receive notice of a civil administration action. This notice may come from the United States Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau or Florida’s Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco. Both of these agencies can choose to file criminal charges but in most cases, an administrative action can be served instead.

Administrative actions are usually served through certified mail. Although you may be tempted to delay taking action or ignore the letter altogether, it is critical that you give the action the attention it needs. If you do not, the situation will only become worse. After you have received the letter regarding the administrative action, you have just 21 days to respond. If you fail to do this, your liquor license may be automatically revoked.

Why Work with a Tampa Administrative Actions Attorney?

After receiving an administrative action, you may also be tempted to simply try and handle the matter on your own. Some business owners do this because they believe it will save them in legal fees, but it is a mistake. Remember that your liquor license may be at risk, which could further hurt your business. Even making a small and innocent mistake during the process could result in an unfavorable outcome. A Tampa administrative actions attorney can provide you with additional time to learn about the options available to you and reduce the risk of the harsh and devastating consequences you may face.

Receiving an administrative action is stressful, but it is important that you do not panic. Many times, simply responding to the action against you can minimize the penalties you face. For example, responding to the action in a timely manner may result in a civil penalty of $500 instead of a revocation or your liquor license. When working with restaurant, bar, and other business owners, our goal is always to be proactive so we can help you avoid the possibility of administrative actions or disputes.
