A: Notwithstanding I am basing my response solely on your post, in general terms, any business does reserve the right to refuse service. However, a business cannot break the law or discriminate on the basis of suspect and quasi-suspect classifications such as race, gender, etc. I will be more than happy to discuss your matter further if in Florida. You can contact my office by filling a form on my website:
