Presenter: I'm here this afternoon with Skip Reale who's an attorney with the Law Firm of Helmer, Conley & Kasselman. Skip, I know that you do work with ABC, but I have no idea what that is. Could you explain it, please?
Skip: Certainly. At the end of prohibition in 1933, New Jersey enacted legislation that controls the alcoholic beverage industry in New Jersey and has not effectively been changed, and part of that was an assignment of the regulatory function, which is known as the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control. They are responsible for not only licensing but also for the disciplinary actions resulting from violations of some of the regulations. The difficulty in dealing with ABC is that they are really rather fixed in their ways, very difficult to deal with, and you have to use your expertise and relationships in finding resolutions to the issues that they bring forth.
Don’t let your rights be jeopardized.
