Thank you very much for your help with the lease. It was my first commercial lease ever and I am glad it is finally done. You have no idea!  It was a grueling process for me and without your help, I would have thrown in the towel.  I don’t want to read another lease for a long long time!  The sentences are so long that when I get mid-sentence, I forget what the first part of the sentence was about. Talk about short term memory loss!

I greatly appreciate your patience, your guidance and your professionalism. I would definitely send you referrals.

Hi Nancy and Yvonne-
I wanted to thank you both again for having Lanard and Associates represent my first undertaking with a commercial lease. From the first conversation with Nancy to getting after-hour calls from Yvonne, I was in great hands.  Yvonne is a rock star attorney!! She represented my interests in my lease negotiations by always asking me what I wanted not what I had to agree to or telling what is norm in a commercial lease. Even if what I wanted was not what would happen, the rectitude to always ask me my thoughts about certain points separates Yvonne from being just a lawyer or representative. She became a partner in my venture. She was delicate in advising when I needed and resilient to push opposing counsel when the situation called for it. 
Yvonne is the epitome of professionalism. She is responsive, attentive, detailed and patient. (My 95+ page lease had no chance against her.) 
Thank you again for going above and beyond my expectations in this process. It was an experience I would only go through again with Yvonne and Lanard in my corner. 


Thanks Yvonne!  Your and Nancy's wonderful support and legal services were / are much appreciated throughout the entire process.  This could not have happened without you and Nancy.
We look forward to working with you and Nancy in the near future!

Also, we hope both of you will be able to attend our family & friends day and grand opening for our first store in the near future.
We made a great partnership.

We want to thank you for the professional service and help we received from you and your firm as we negotiated the lease on our PSP store.  We would have been lost without your guidance.  Yvonne was extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.  We appreciate […] that she was accommodating to our crazy schedules.  Again, thank you for your services.

Best regards,

Hollie worked with Yvonne Holden this year while we were launching a new consulting business. She was so helpful; such the great spark we needed to keep us moving forward and carry through! We ultimately used a Canadian Attorney to help us with contract review on our international agreement. Yvonne provided us wonderful insight and helped us find professional attorneys in Canada.

You provided me with excellent professional services contracts in the past, which also helped us tremendously in the process of launching a new business, helping to provide us the confidence to move forward. We are now a two-consultant family. It is quite a journey. The future is bright! We are having a blast. 🙂

Kind Regards,

- Ramsey and Hollie

Hi Yvonne, I just wanted to express our sincere gratitude for all of your help with our lease negotiations. We have worked with many attorneys over the years and I can honestly say you were by far the most knowledgeable, professional and just wonderful to work with!

I would absolutely recommend you to any franchise partner that reaches out to me and I look forward to working with you again on our next project!

Thank you so much!
