WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“…AMAZING HELP IN REVIEWING FRANCHISE AGREEMENTS.”
I wanted to thank Julie for her amazing help in reviewing franchise agreements. I thought that I could understand everything on my own but I was wrong. Julie pointed out a lot of items that could have led to trouble for me down the road had she not. She did a wonderful job helping me negotiate items, was patient and always available. While reviewing franchise agreements is not cheap, it is well worth the price of not being stuck with unfavorable terms for 5-10 yrs. Thanks again Julie!
“COMPREHENSIVE AND THOROUGH”
Julie was a comprehensive and thorough resource for my franchise law needs, her process was ideal from start to finish.
“…VERY THOROUGH, HIGHLY RESPONSIVE, AND ACHIEVED GOOD RESULTS.”
I worked with Lusthaus Law PC on a commercial lease negotiation in New Jersey. Julie was a pleasure to work with. On a professional level, she was very thorough, highly responsive, and achieved good results for me. On a personal level, she was easy to talk to and understanding of my issues. I’ll work with her again and highly recommend her.
“JULIE WAS AN AMAZING GUIDE THROUGH THE FRANCHISE PROCESS…”
Julie was an amazing guide through the franchise process and we were able to make our decision with confidence, knowing we had thoroughly vetted the organization. She was professional, thorough and very patient! Would highly recommend her services!
“…CONSISTENT AND EXCELLENT SERVICE.”
Thanks so much for consistent and excellent service. You allowed me to step back throughout the process. My partners and I appreciate your work tremendously.
