A well-drafted estate plan ensures your wealth is transferred to the beneficiaries you choose and protects your family from the time, expense and publicity of probate.

Legal Advice For The Life Of Your Business

Whether you are starting a business or buying a franchise, you need legal advice to be successful. To avoid pitfalls and mistakes, it only makes sense to consult a business-oriented attorney.

I am Stephen A. Colley, and I represent business and franchise owners throughout the North County coastal and inland cities, including San Diego, Encinitas, Carlsbad and San Marcos. I do not see myself as just a lawyer; I run my own business and have had to grapple with the same issues you face. Before I became a lawyer, I was a licensed real estate broker and was also involved personally in franchising. I know the pressures business owners are under and the responsibilities they have.
