Queens Attorney Handling Building and Business Violations

Bringing Your Business Back Into Compliance With the Law

If you are a business owner who has been ticketed for selling cigarettes or liquor to a minor, or if you are a property owner who faces a building code violation because you have neglected to carry out repairs ordered by the city, you need a qualified and experienced lawyer to help you resolve this potentially serious and costly matter.

You can rely on New York building code violations attorney David B. Schachter. With more than 30 years of experience, Mr. Schachter will take immediate action to correct or stop the violation and bring your business, building or operation back into compliance with the law.

A building code violation is very serious. The potential penalties include license suspension, license revocation, large fines, or even the closing of the business. In the event you receive a notice of violation, our firm will work hard to keep your penalties to a minimum and enable your business or enterprise to continue operations.

At the Law Office of Schachter, P.C., we have successfully:

  • Expedited the conversion of an illegal 2-family to a legal 4-family
  • Settled violations on behalf of a small-business owner with the Department of Consumer Affairs and had his revoked operating license reinstated
  • Negotiated with the Building Department to rescind a stop order, approve new plans and issue permits for the conversion of a factory and dwelling to a factory and store

Professional Violations

The firm also handles cases involving professional license violations. Licenses are required for a wide range of businesses, and these licenses are regulated by the government as well as private organizations. We have experience defending clients charged with professional license violations by government agencies, professional associations and other licensing bodies.
