After having my franchise illegally terminated from under me, I sent a brief description to 10 different attorneys, including Janet, to see the kind of response I would get. This helped me in deciding who I was going to trust in taking my case. Janet's response alone, made my decision to go with her, very easy! I was thankful that she took my case. Although, I was on a contingency and wasn't able to get what I was looking for in regards to compensation and mostly because I didn't have the money to take my case as far as I would have liked too. I was still happy with the end result. Looking back at how the whole situation came about, when the termination happened, I was thankful that the option was there for her to take my case on a contingency. in the end she did me a great justice!. Thank you Janet!

Janet is a very skilled Franchise Lawyer, she is very knowledgeable in Franchisor and Franchisee laws and provides exceptional advise! I highly recommend her! As a franchisee I have worked with different lawyers over the years, and wish I would have found her first!

I am very thankful that I decided to retain Janet to review our franchise contract. She gave us peace of mind as we entered into this new venture. She quickly uncovered some key issues with the contract that allowed us to make timely revisions prior to signing. Janet is very knowledgable, responsive, and most of all friendly. It feels as though I'm speaking to a friend when we talk, not just my attorney.

I'm working with Janet to get a set of FDD/FA agreements set up for a new franchise, and she's everything the other reviewers say! I've had a hard time finding someone with expertise in franchising in the first place here in the bay area, that doesn't charge ridiculous sums. Super glad to have found Janet. No problem at all working long distance with her - in fact, never met her in person! She is:
* Responsive - responds to every question I have on my long emails, within a day at the most, but usually faster
* Knowledgable - her responses are thorough and helpful, and she takes time to think of other angles
* Dependable - kept to her own schedule of drafts, and even spent a Sunday to make sure she stayed on schedule
Most important of all, I feel she is on my side to help get my project completed in the most cost effective but best way, and I'm not just another project and dollar amount to her!

We contacted Janet to help us navigate several complex issues we were having with our franchisor. She listened to our concerns and then performed an in depth review of the franchise disclosure document, our franchise agreement, and the franchisor in general. The amount of useful information she provided to us was astounding. It was so much more thorough and detailed than we expected. Not only was the information enlightening, but it was also coupled with her insightful interpretation of that information and how it applied to our specific issues.
Janet's expertise in the franchise law arena is undeniable. I would absolutely recommend Janet to anyone who is looking for a highly skilled and experienced attorney who will deliver extraordinary value for her services.

I actually started with another franchise attorney. After engaging him, I realized that the “big box” attorney model was not for me. I was just another faceless target for billable hours. I found Janet through this website, and retained her to review my FDD and advise. I was pleasantly surprised to find an attorney that was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and willing to work with me on a personal level.
Her detailed report covered not just the legal, but also the business and financial aspects associated with the franchise as well. Working closely with me and my concerns, she was able to identify and negotiate out the unfavorable provisions of the contract, and put together the best package possible. Highly recommend!

I asked Jane to review my franchise contract. She was very detailed and let me know of all the risks involved with the contract. I ended up not signing the contract...

So glad I found Ms. Martin at exactly the time I did. She has been a highly experienced, and very responsive legal advocate who has been an enormous help in an area I had absolutely no experience with. More specifically, she analyzed and reviewed the FDD, and helped me understand (and defend) my rights when our funding fell through. I would not hesitate to recommend her in regards to any aspect of franchise law.
