California Franchise Law Firm

If you need a franchise lawyer in California, why not choose the law firm that has been named “Franchise Law Firm of the Year” two years running? Why not choose Global Law Experts’ “Recommended Franchise Law Firm in Franchise Litigation”? Why not choose the “Top Franchise Litigator for Franchisees and Dealers” as named by Leaders in Law?

At the Goldstein Law Firm, we are proud of these accolades because they reflect our unwavering commitment to our clients. With over 30 years’ experience, we understand what it is like to be a franchisee or dealer. We know that your franchise agreement is unfair; and, in arbitration and litigation, we know that the cards are stacked against you. But, we also know that it is possible to overcome the legal protections that franchisors put in place. We have a proven track record of success in franchise agreement negotiations and franchise litigation, and we can use our experience to help you protect your franchise investment.
