I have been a franchise attorney since 1988 and have served as the general counsel for several international franchise brands, you would recognize.  I have also been a franchisee and wrote extensively on the topic when I was a monthly columnist for Entrepreneur Magazine as well as Franchise Times.  I have seen so many franchise disclosure documents that I can discern what is normal and what is excessive.  I love to start franchise companies and enjoy the creative outlet involved with that creation.  I can also work with the required intellectual property and related contracts.  Most of my new franchisors use me as their outside general counsel for years. I also enjoy the David and Goliath aspect of representing franchisees who may be taken advantage of by an overreaching franchisor.
How did you build a successful practice?

I have built my practice by doing a consistently professional job and keeping my clients informed about their matter.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

Local knowledge is not as important as industry knowledge. In franchising, you must always weigh the law and the practice being used in the industry. Franchise attorney's tend to lean toward conservatism in their approach.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

I can give you a 30,000 foot view of your situation and share my experience by applying it to your situration

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

The parties involved so I can conduct a check for conflicts.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

My many years of experience in an area that is not typically taught in law school

What are your other interests in addition to law?

I like to ride my bicycle and play the bass guitar in a band. I also love camping, boating and piloting my Cessna 210
