Dady Gardner Office Franchise Lawyer Attorneys



“I just wanted to circle back around and thank both of you for the extraordinary work you did for me and DPR this year. We closed on the transaction July 9th. This was truly a win win for everyone. I have worked with hundreds of attorneys in my career and you guys were the best. Friendly, proactive, professional, fair and very intelligent on the legal side. Thank you doesn’t seem to be enough. You have a friend in Texas.

Jody L. Anderson, CEO, DPR Investments Ltd, San Antonio, TX

“Just wanted to thank you guys for all the effort put into making my once difficult situation a now pleasurable situation. I was truly struggling (professionally and personally) during the months prior to contacting your firm, but it seems as if you brought instant relief and breathed new breath into my situation. Even though I didn’t know how the situation would turn out, I knew that I was 1000% better off with Dady & Gardner on my side. I would like to thank you for being there the entire step of the way. I have been telling all my friends about your firm and that I was truly represented by THE BEST.”

Darryl Gardner, Former Ace Cash Express Franchise

“Our Licensee Association felt that our Licensor was unfairly imposing additional fees on us, so we contacted Michael Dady.  Michael agreed with us, and worked with us to develop a strategy for gaining some bargaining power with our Licensor – a strategy which ultimately led to a restructured, and vastly improved, License Agreement for all of us.”

Rod Smith, former President, National Car Rental Licensee Association

“It was obvious from our very first meeting with Michael Dady and his partners that they care more about their clients’ interests than their own. It is becoming increasingly rare in today’s world to find people who will do the ‘right thing’ regardless of the circumstances or outcome. For both of them, ‘doing the right thing’ is their normal course of business – we applaud them!”

Jim and Diane Nelson, Coldwell Banker/Cendant franchisees

“When it comes to negotiating big issues with our franchisors — like development rights, performance criteria, and transfer rights — Michael Dady is one of the best.  he consistently gives us good businessman’s understanding of our legal rights and our options, and works with us, and with the lawyers of our franchisors, to come up with creative, effective and efficient solutions that work for us and our franchisors.”

Lee Engler, Border Foods, Inc., Multi-Unit Franchise of Pizza Hut and Taco Bell

“Michael Dady and his colleagues have always provided us with prompt, realistic and helpful legal and strategic advice that has consistently allowed us to effectively and efficiently address and resolve the most significant challenges we have faced in our franchisee/franchisor relationships over the years.”

Mahendra Nath, Nath Companies, Inc., Multi-Unit Burger King, Denny's and Radisson Franchise

“I was impressed by the amount of homework Michael Dady did on our case before he formed an opinion.  When it came time to give advice, he was fully prepared.  That is a sign of a great attorney.  If I know of anyone that is having problems with a franchisor, I would highly recommend Michael Dady and Dady & Gardner.”

S. Carl Nicolaysen, President/CEO, ES-O-EN Corp., Multi-Unit Taco Bell Franchise

“When our primary manufacturer terminated our dealership because of an international merger, the future of our dealership was uncertain. Like a lot of people, I was nervous and uncomfortable about having to use lawyers and the legal process in order to take on a company the size of Ford New Holland. However, unlike a lot of lawyers I have talked to, Ron Gardner understood our problems, our anxieties, and our fears. He listened and counseled us in way that helped put our minds at ease. He is a real ‘people person.’ By the time we got to trial, both Ron, and his partner, Michael Dady, had convinced us that we could win against this international giant.

I am happy to report that they were right. The performance of Dady & Gardner, both in the court room and out, made it possible for our dealership to recover hundreds of thousands of dollars – something others said would never happen.”

Denzil Robbins, Owner, Robbins Farm Equipment, Baker City, OR

“Because they only represent franchisees, Ron Gardner and Michael Dady have developed a comprehensive knowledge of the nature of franchisor/franchisee relations from a franchisee perspective. Dady & Gardner’s focused practice eliminates the intense learning curve most other lawyers face in representing franchisees.”

Darrell Dunafon, Former President, International Association of Taco Bell Franchises

“After watching Michael Dady cross examine the guy who tried to terminate our dealership, I told my manager ‘if Michael Dady is ever against us in a lawsuit, we should just pay!'”

Clifton Bradshaw, Owner, Nueces Power Equipment, Corpus Christi, TX
