His is calm and responsive, very pleasant to work with. We highly recommend his service in handling ABC complex matters.

Thank you for everything Dean! You helped me out of a really tough situation that other attorneys had said was near impossible and you didn’t gouge my bank account to do it either. I truly appreciate everything you have done for me and I will be forever grateful!

We are the owners of a restaurant with a Type 75 license and had an accusation filed against us by ABC and they suspended our license. Dean Lueders was referred to us by our family’s attorney. He did an outstanding job communicating with the ABC agents when they did not return my calls and canceled/rescheduled several meetings. After all the hard work of Deans, we got our license back! We were represented better than I could have ever imagine. Thank you so much Dean for handling everything, we couldn’t have done it without you.

Last year due to a series of unfortunate events in our family business we were stuck and about to lose our ABC license. There were no lawyers who specialize in our difficult case. That’s until I heard about Mr. Dean Lueders. After speaking with Mr. Lueders we were assured of our rights and steps and procedures of possibly keeping our ABC license. Not only that, Mr. Lueders and his team’s expert knowledge made the impossible possible and we were granted an ABC license. He had the inside knowledge of ABC and knew exactly what ABC would do. I realize that other businesses may face difficult decisions from ABC and may or may not know who to turn for help. Mr. Dean Lueders is best there is and I highly recommend his services to anyone who’s in a bind with ABC.

This letter is in regards to Dean Lueders Esq. This letter is a response to the outstanding professionalism shown by the attorney we retained with regard to our business known as the Centerville Lounge.

Dean Lueders was not only on top of our requests, he also was very helpful in achieving a prompt and successful resolution.

He kept us informed at all times during the negotiations and was very informative of the process and expectations that we could expect.

I would recommend Dean highly to anyone requiring his expertise. Should I need his services again in the future, I would not hesitate to retain his services again.

Dean Lueders was able to help me through a very rough time with my ABC Case. We chose Mr. Lueders because we valued his experience with ABC and know with certainty that we made the right choice. Dean is highly professional and was always readily available and responsive. He kept my wife and I informed throughout the entire process and was able to keep me calm during the case. I highly recommend him.

I am pleased to provide an enthusiastic recommendation for Dean Lueders. In 2017, I was filing a new alcohol license application for a new wine bar with the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). For anyone unfamiliar with this agency and their requirements, it can be a complex and intimidating process.

I was given Dean Lueders’ name and contact information. I telephoned him, and to my delight, he answered his phone. I introduced myself and how I was referred. I explained my predicament, which was very time sensitive.

The next day we met for the first time. He reviewed my forms and quickly explained the potential legal issues involved. He accompanied me to file the form and handled the encounter professionally, courteously, and competently. He put me at ease, as I quickly realized I had someone to assist me with my complicated application, and ensured that I met the requirements.

In summary, I am pleased to recommend Mr. Lueders. I could not have asked for better representation. He is competent, professional, and friendly!

I want to thank Dean Lueders for working with us on our liquor licensing project.  His knowledge and expertise were invaluable in getting out license.  I would not recommend doing anything with the ABC until you have spoken with Dean.  His advice saved of months of red tape. We could not have done it without him.

I met Dean through a mutual connection and ended up working with him to review some of our distribution agreements. He provided some much needed guidance from a unique perspective, given his long tenure working for the State of California ABC. I plan to work with Dean again on an as-needed basis and recommend other local suppliers give him a shot.

Dean quickly and successfully defended us in a breach of contract matter, resulting in the other party backing off their unwarranted claim, and saving us thousands of dollars in the process. Throughout our dealings, he was considerate, professional, and accessible, and his fees were quite reasonable. We were very pleased with the services we received.
Mr. Lueders is an excellent, caring, and passionate lawyer.
