About Stephen A. Colley, APC

I have been a business lawyer for more than 30 years, specializing in franchise and business law. I am a Certified Specialist in Franchise and Distribution Law from The State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization. I have also received an AV Preeminent peer review rating* through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating provided.

Because I limit my practice to specialist areas, I provide the technical expertise that is essential when advising businesses in today’s complex legal environment.

Personal Advice For Your Business, Targeted At Your Needs

Several years ago, I left the security of being a partner at a law firm to set up my own practice in Carmel Valley, North County San Diego. I wanted to be more directly involved in the businesses of my clients and select those that I wanted to work with.

Now, I use the skills I have acquired — both as a business lawyer and as an attorney at the Department of Business Oversight (the franchise registration agency) — to give a more personalized and strategic legal service.

Sometimes the value of individual attention is overlooked. I believe it is essential to a successful attorney-client relationship.

Whether you are a franchisor, a franchisee, a corporate owner, a partner in a business or a sole proprietor, you will get thoughtful business law counsel that is targeted precisely at your personal needs.

* The AV Rating is the highest one provided by Martindale Hubbell, a facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the judiciary. The ratings fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
