Your lawyer is here !
I had bad problems with my restaurant manager because he was too soft in its ways to screw employees and it happened thefts, cleaning done wrong, hours counted or improperly counted too, documents not filed in due time, fines, etc. . a real mess. I appealed to Mr. Francis M. Boyer who advised me, put the director on the right path, ask me to close the restaurant for two days to clean all up, what i did. He is a great guy and a very good lawyer. I recommend him eyes closed. Now, my director took the control of the restaurant with more confidence, employees are ok, all is in its due place, invoices are paid in time, documents filled in due time too because Mr Boyer have a look on it. My restaurant runs right and i enjoy it.

Very Knowledgeable and helpful!
Finally a lawyer who goes the "extra-mile" to really offer the best possible advice on how to start a new business in the US! Mr Boyer really took the time to answer my questions in detail (and I had lots!), walked me through the entire process and helped even after with the final steps of putting together you're newly created company. I highly recommend him!

I recommend M. Boyer for any commercial installation
Before my french retirement, I contacted two lawyers in Miami before a friend advised me to call Mr. Boyer. I have well done to listen to his advice. As a French, I knew nothing in the how-to- do to come in the USA and I was very nervous. With M. Boyer near me, I was able to buy my station service. He followed me on the financial, legal, real estate plans and it really helped me to move forward with much confidence.
