Dram Shop

Kent/McBride attorneys are experienced in handling Dram Shop liability matters referable to the body of law governing the liability of taverns, restaurants, banquet halls, liquor stores and other commercial establishments that sell and serve alcoholic beverages. Generally, these cases take the form of claims involving sale or service to a visibly intoxicated person or minor who subsequently causes death or injury to third-parties, whether or not those injured have a relationship to the establishment, as a result of alcohol-related car crashes or other incident.  Our facility in this area lends itself not only to handling litigated matters, but also in counseling our clients on how to avoid the pitfalls that could potentially lead to costly and damaging litigation.
