"We both want to thank you for the tremendous results you achieved for us. We can't tell you how much we appreciated how fast and thorough you were, especially while on your vacation! We just want you to know how happy we are with the service you provided for us. Many, many thanks!
With Gratitude,

Things have gone well.  It was great working with you too!  I appreciated the thoroughness, particularly since this was my first commercial lease. Heads-up for both of you [Nancy & Erin]: I soon may be needing additional services. 


"I was looking to open my first gym franchise and needed an attorney to help with the contract review and forming our LLC.  I could not have been happier with Nancy and Erin.  They were thorough and explained things clearly to me every step of the way.  They provided great insight and clearly had the expertise needed.  I felt very comfortable and always believed they were looking out for my best interests, which really put my mind at ease.  As a first time franchisee, I would highly recommend this group."

With Gratitude,

Nancy runs a very professional and friendly law firm. They are deep experts in the franchise arena, with decades of experience. Erin Gray, my lead attorney, was lightening fast in getting on my calendar, and we quickly walked through all the documentation I needed reviewed. She was thorough, friendly, and very capable of breaking down "legal terms" into concepts that made sense to me. The changes/edits were sent out within 24 hours every step of the way. We were done in less than a week!

Erin and Nancy are worth your time and money, and will be an asset to any franchise candidate.

Thank you, Nancy. Your firm, and especially Erin, have been a tremendous help to Joanne and I. We look forward to working with you on the next lease!

I was not sure about whether it was worth spending money on having an attorney review my franchise agreement and negotiate on my behalf, but after having done so, I am glad I did.

Erin guided me through the unfamiliar world of franchise agreements. Using her experience she helped me understand what is normal and what is not. Her skill in handling the negotiation was something to behold and it put distance between myself and any conflict on the sticking points. In the end both the franchisor and myself are happy with the agreement we have and can look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership, with rules clearly outlined in my agreement.
