Liqour Licensing & Violations

Over 30 years Experience with liquor license matters


My liquor license experience began in 1986, representing Rite Aid Corporation for all of its liquor license matters in the State of Michigan, as well as representing many area party stores, restaurants and bars. I worked exclusively with the owner of that law firm on behalf of those clients, and became extremely knowledgeable and close with the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, its rules, procedures, and its employees.

Since 1998, when I opened Lovejoy Law Offices, I have continued to represent some large companies with multiple store locations, as well as area party stores and nightclubs with extremely good results. I also now have experience obtaining approval for micro brewerys.

From obtaining licenses in an expedited fashion, to persuading local governmental units, to defending clients against charged violations (selling to minors and intoxicated persons, allowing fights, guns, over crowding and drugs), I have been unusually and extremely successful in obtaining excellent and the best results for each one of my clients.


Better and Faster


I will provide you superior representation in obtaining new liquor licenses, transferring liquor licenses and fighting violation and denial claims both at the Commission level and that of appealing Commission orders to the courts. I now have over 30 years of experience working with the Liquor Commission, and knowing the people there, and the best ways to proceed in obtaining liquor licenses, transferring locations and licenses and defending claimed violations of Commission rules.

I attribute my success in this area of the law to my many years of experience, to my keeping updated on rule changes at the Commission and to maintaining those valuable relationships with the people who work at the Commission. I attribute the amount of my satisfied and happy clients to my diligent and relentless efforts to obtain for them the results they want in a timely fashion.
