Attorney at Law
"We worked with Russell when my company was working through starting to franchise our business. He was always very quick to turn around documents and communication. We believe he was priced competitively and fairly for what our needs were and gave us great advice when we needed direction. We felt he did an exceptional job and would recommend him to others looking for franchising legal help."
