Getting a Class C liquor license in Michigan is not always easy. The state closely examines applications, and cities and townships have broad discretion to approve or disapprove a license. Municipalities limit permits based on proximity to other bars, restaurants, schools and other facilities. They will closely examine your background as well. Even a misdemeanor offense many years ago can cause them to question or delay the approval of a license.

Carlin Edwards Brown PLLC is a firm that helps neighborhood bar owners obtain liquor licenses. When it comes to Class C licenses, we are experienced, efficient and cost-effective.

Efficient and Cost-Effective Services

Cities and townships in Michigan have broad discretion when it comes to approving or disapproving liquor licenses. As a neighborhood bar owner, the existence of your establishment is largely in their hands.

Our firm provides efficient and cost-effective services regarding the acquisition or transfer of liquor licenses. If your county is holding up your license over a criminal background concern or for another reason, we will work diligently to get your liquor license approved. Because we have handled a large number of neighborhood bar license cases, we understand how to communicate to licensing authorities in language they understand. We will make your case in a persuasive manner.

Carlin Edwards Brown PLLC also represents neighborhood bar owners accused of liquor code violations.

Your One-Stop Source for Licensing and Permits

In addition to helping you get and keep a liquor license, our firm can assist you in matters involving business law, real estate, zoning matters or exemptions and other issues.

Our firm has handled cases in every county of the state and is very familiar with local permitting and zoning regulations. Over the years, we have built up a library of license and permit application documents for many municipalities in Michigan. Often, we can prepare and send out the appropriate application with supporting documentation the same day — for a very affordable fee.
