Beware of persons claiming to be liquor license expediters The use of influence
in obtaining a license is a violation
of law. We apply for your license the old fashion way. We file it correctly.
The Liquor Authority has the right to make their own rules. It seems they change the rules, required forms and documents almost on a daily basis depending on which examiner you are dealing with.
Liquor Authority employees constantly seem to dream up new requirements. Many of these requirements you will not find in writing anywhere.
It is not uncommon for a Liquor Authority employee to give you incorrect information that will later cause your application to be denied.
If your application is rejected the SLA will confiscate your filing fee
Has your license application been rejected for some crazy reason that you can not find in the ABC Law? Don't be surprised,It happens all the time! In our opinion if you are not a professional in contact with the three SLA offices on a daily basis your application will be probably be rejected or delayed. Deficient applications can easily be delayed for many months.
If you still wish to attempt to file the application yourself we offer a service to review the application and make appropriate corrections.
A temporary license can be a landmine that can blow up in your face. The temporary permit may be summarily canceled or suspended at any time. The SLA will keep the $650 fee too.
The license application process is very time consuming and frustrating. If one question is not answered to the ABC license examiners satisfaction the application can be returned to the applicant. The Authority can keep your fees and then make you start all over with more fees. Unwelcome surprises that cost the applicant significant time and money to resolve are very common. If an applicant attempts to obtain a license without EXPERIENCED professional assistance the process could take many months before a license is issued, if a license is issued at all. For one low flat fee our consultants will do all the work for you, your attorney or your accountant.

The Liquor Authority has created a huge backlog of license applications. The Liquor Authority is now returning new applications and keeping fees if the application is not correct. The Liquor Authority is more than happy to keep your fees and make you start the process all over if they find an i not dotted or a t not crossed. Questions that appear to be simply answered can be traps that result in the rejection of your application.
