Vicki Schmidt

Vicki Schmidt assists clients across each tier of the alcoholic beverage industry – manufacturing, distribution and retail sales – with beer, business and liquor licensing matters. Restaurants, hotels, distilleries, and retail package liquor stores value her experience with alcoholic beverage regulations and licensing applications for state and local agencies. In 2016, Vicki assisted hundreds of local, regional and national grocery stores obtain licenses when legislation permitting the sale of wine in Tennessee grocery stores took effect, and in 2017 she assisted with their annual renewals.  

Prior to joining Waller in 2018, Vicki gained 20 years of paralegal experience in matters ranging from alcoholic beverage law to corporate and business law matters, environment law and employment disputes.
