How to Choose a Franchise Lawyer

The video, 'How to Choose a Franchise Lawyer' by Jeffrey Goldstein from the Goldstein Law Firm, PLLC, explains for laypeople the general types of issues that franchise attorneys encounter and deal with. In part, this video creates and identifies a list of major substantive legal issues about which most franchise litigation around the country focuses. These include wrongful franchise termination, franchise defaults, franchise encroachment, failure to pay royalties, and others. The video also stresses that it is crucial, as a franchisee, to choose a franchise lawyer that represents only franchisees and dealers, not both franchisees and franchisors. Many lawyers will try to hide this latter fact when you are searching for an attorney; make sure you're able to weed these hybrid-attorneys from your selection pool.
