Excellent Lawyer
Alan helped us navigate the complexities of California regulations when opening our franchise. He did very extensive and thorough research to ensure that we are protected under the law. He is always courteous and easy to talk to and tries to explain the law in layman's terms. He doesn't overwhelm you with a lot of confusing, legal terminology. He always made himself available when we needed his help. When we were up against a deadline, Alan worked weekends and on his vacation to accommodate us. We highly recommend Alan.
