Mr Internicola offered me extremely valuable advice by ensure that my FDD was written fairly and had my best interests in mind. All of his recommendations were well thought out and specific to my business. They were not cookie cutter responses. All the requested updates he made were very reasonable not only from my perspective but from the perspective of the Franchisor. All requested changes were accepted by the Franchisor. Both Mr. Internicola and his assistant Samantha were both extremely responsive and accommodating to my schedule. Both were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to friends.

Charles and his team are nothing short of wonderful!! Being in a terrible business relationship was one of the most difficult times in my career. Having Charles Internicola in my corner to protect my interests and deliver sound advice was absolutely invaluable. I was in a business partnership where my (x-partner) was in drugs and his recklessness and irrational behavior made it seemingly impossible to imagine a way out of the endless disputes and hurtles. I distinctly recall Charles smiling at me and resting his hand on my shoulder and saying "please don't be nervous, you have absolutely nothing to worry about." This may seem like an ordinary, maybe an even corny description of an example of his confidence and leadership, however those words from Charles at that particular moment in time meant so much to me. It marked a pivotal point in the process where I made the conscious decision to actually "trust" a lawyer 100%. You see, weather I knew it or not at the time, Charles had placed me in the optimal position of leverage against my former partner at every step of the way. That moment simply marked the point where I literally trusted him with my life.
Choosing Charles to represent me was the best decision I could've made! Charles Internicola is a man of character, integrity, charm, savvy and legal brilliance.
It is about 15 months since Charles Internicola helped facilitate an amicable and sensible end of litigation with an insane x-partner. To this day, I am still truly amazed at his competence and how invaluable his representation was to me. I would invite anyone who would like to speak with me personally to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am thrilled to recommend the Internicola Law Firm to ANYONE looking to hire the very best franchise and business lawyers on earth!

While I've used other types of lawyers, in other business ventures, this time I found myself needing a franchisee attorney for the business I was starting up. Going into it blindly, a for a territory a bit of a distance of where I lived, I looked up and called a few names after some researching through Google.
It was about my 4th call in and I called Mr Internicola's Law Office. I immediately knew I wanted I wanted to use him. From the way his assistant (Samantha) handled our first conversation of "information gathering," to the way that Mr. Internicola spoke with me, not down at me, made me extremely comfortable. I should note, Mr. Internicola offered me a reduced rate because he had just reviewed another FDD of the same franchisee and that is part of his policy. He did not have to offer that, I wouldn't have never known that fact. I did not know he offered a reduced rate if he had reduced similar agreement.
When we got into the specifics of the agreement I was signing, he seemed very knowledgeable on the finer points of the agreement and explained clearly how they could affect me. His experience as a franchisee himself definitely comes into play here. I ultimately ended up signing the agreement with confidence.
But simply put, I trusted him and his staff.
As a bonus they seem like very nice and genuine people.
I would highly recommend Mr Internicola to anyone seeking counsel for Franchise Law.

I found The Internicola Law Firm team to be extremely excellent and responsive. They have been by far the best experience thus far in the process of purchasing a franchise business. From inception to completion of legal services, they were A+ in every category and in reference to their retainer cost, they are by far the best bang in comparison to the other firms that I vetted before choosing Internicola. I highly recommend this firm for franchise legal services.

I recently dealt with Charles and his team and wanted to take the time to thank them. Brian was a partner through our research and decision to go ahead on a venture franchise and invest. He took the guess work out of the FDD, provided material to understand our risks and signed off on a leveled playing field where we were able to control our success or failure. Clearly they helped eliminate unknown risks.
Our first meeting with Charles focused on the "why" and not the "what." Why did we want to invest, why not upsize our house residence instead of risk an investment. That is what we needed, not an attorney who thought an idea was good to run with.
I commend them on their end to end process and will deal with them in the future. Thanks Charles, Brian and Sam.

Charles has been representing me on a Partnership dispute matter for the past 7 months. For me, what sets him apart from other attorneys is how he seems to treat my case as if it were happening to him personally. Almost like being represented by a family member. In other words, he cares. At the same time, he conducts himself as such without sacrificing an ounce of professionalism. It is nice to be represented by an attorney who cares more about his client than in making friends with opposing counsel. Aside from all that he is not only tough when he needs to be, but he has an excellent understanding of the issues in my case and seems really knowledgeable on the applicable laws. I don't know if the other side likes him, but they certainly have to respect him. I am glad I have Charles and his staff on my team and, going forward, I am confident that I have the best representation possible. I give my highest recommendation.

More than Charles Internicola being one of the top notch lawyers in the franchise industry, he is a trusted representative who gets involved on a personal level, digging to the core of the resolution no matter what the business matter is. He is driven for what is right, more than racking up billing hours. Fair is insufficient in describing his practice. He is righteous and resolution is what you can expect and what you will get. You can rest assure and have complete confidence that Mr. Internicola knows his material and is on top of your case. It leaves you the peace of mind to tend to your other life affairs. Furthermore, he has put together a staff and support group that deserve to be in the hall of fame of law firms. I have nothing but the highest marks for he and his crew. Anyone would be lucky to have Mr. Internicola as a representative. He has even motivated me to expand my business knowing that I won't have any troubles on the legal end with any expansion or new partnerships. In short, this guy is great.

I found Attorney Internicola informative, courteous and kind as well as knowledgeable and responsive to the questions and matters I mentioned. He posed questions and ideas I hadn't thought of before I spoke to him. I found his advice comprehensive and well-focused.

Having owned three restaurants, I have had a great deal of experience with numerous lawyers. When my current lawyer was just not getting the job done, one of my food distributor's recommended Charles and from my first conversation with Charles through my business closing the responsiveness of his services and his knowledge of what needs to be done was exceptional. An attorney that actually understands business.
