  • Scott F March

    I’ve known Bryan many years through various franchise law activities. He is a Franchise & Distribution Law Specialist certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. I have always found his knowledge and experience in franchise law to be very helpful when discussing situations we encounter. I especially like that fact that he applies common sense and good business judgment when suggesting legal solutions. I highly recommend that you talk to him if you need legal assistance with franchise matters or related business issues.
