Personal Advice For Your Business, Targeted To Your Needs

Several years ago, Mr. Colley left the security of a local mid-size law firm to set up his own practice in Carmel Valley, North County San Diego. He wanted to be more directly involved in the businesses of his clients and selecting those he wanted to work with.

Now, he uses the skills he has acquired — both as a business lawyer and as an attorney at the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (the franchise registration agency formerly known as the Department of Corporations and the Department of Business Oversight) — to give more personalized and strategic legal service.

Sometimes the value of individual attention is overlooked. At our Law Firm, we 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.
