TABC Complaint and Citation Defense

When the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) issues a citation against you, the future of your business could be at stake. TABC complaints and citations can result from any violation of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, including:

  • Serving a minor
  • Serving an intoxicated person
  • Serving alcohol after legal hours of sale
  • Conducting other illegal activities (such as drug use or prostitution) on the premises
