As a lawyer myself, I know the importance of hiring someone who is an expert in her field to handle a legal matter. When I began contemplating buying a small franchise in the Philadelphia area, I was pointed in Nancy’s direction for her expertise in business and franchise law. She has been a delight to work with – and that’s not something people usually say about their lawyers. Nancy is competent, compassionate and efficient. She knows her business and inspires confidence every step along the way. Whatever your business law needs, you will be in good hands with Nancy Lanard and her associates.”
