The Franchise & Business Law Group has been a vital component to my business for more than a decade. Their group of attorneys have acted more as business strategists than just a simple lawyer in each interaction I have with them. I have not found one firm to have the breadth of knowledge, experience and passion for the franchise and business field as I have with them. I refer everyone I know is looking for a franchise attorney to the Franchise & Business Law Group.

Our franchise business has grown from one store to sixty in a relatively short time frame. Without Jeff's franchising expertise, business wisdom, and fatherly role in counseling us every step of the way, there is no way we could have realized this level of sustainable success!

Working with The Franchise & Business Law Group has been a game changer for our small business. When we first set out to franchise our company we were overwhelmed by the magnitude of information and regulations set before us. The entire team (from attorneys to legal secretaries) made this process achievable.  The Franchise & Business Law Group took the time to learn about our business and help us to make decisions that were right for us. We could not be happier with our experience and what it has done for our business!

From Day 1 with The Franchise and Business Law group, I have been impressed with their knowledge, expertise, and experience. At various times, we have had to rely on the Franchise and Business Law group for all three of the above qualities, and they have come through with flying colors. I would recommend this group to anyone, and I would certainly recommend this group to anyone who is starting or franchising their business.
