Hear From Our Clients

“As a minority shareholder of a small Franchise Start-up, I found myself in a David vs Goliath legal battle. The first law firm that I went with ran up fees and charged me nearly $75K before any real court battle commenced. So I fired them and hired Zarco Law. From day 1 they went to bat for me, going over and above the call of duty, winning every court battle, and turning the tide of the case in my favor forcing the other side to wave the white flag of surrender. In the end, I got what I believe is the best settlement possible and helping the little guy beat the giant. If you are considering a firm to represent you in the Franchising arena and feel outmanned, look no further.”

– Eric Mayers
Small Franchise Start-Up

“Zarco, Einhorn, Salkowski, & Brito, P.A. is a unicorn: A legal powerhouse which fights with fervor to defend and protect the rights of the voiceless and powerless by leveling the playing field in their fight against the errant mighty and powerful. Zarco Law will stand by your side as a top notch law firm for all your Business law and Commercial litigation matters.”

– Anna and Sri Vangal
Edible Arrangements Franchisee

“I would like to thank you for the amazing work and effort provided by the team at trial in this case. Fighting ‘side by side’ with you felt like we went far beyond just an attorney-client relationship… As for Mr. Zarco, you have a way with witnesses that cannot be matched by any attorney, in my opinion… We battled an international conglomerate, with far more resources, yet I never felt ‘out-named’ by them for one moment… Robert, you are a true champion, and I’m glad you are on my team!”

– Henry Leace, President, HNC Stores Corp

“On behalf of the National Franchisee Association for Jack in the Box and the nearly 1,800 restaurants we represent, I want to personally thank you for your advocacy, legal representation and nearly perfect resolution to our matter. In our minds, our case was unique in that we wanted peace and transparency with our franchisor and an engaging advisory council. We simply wanted our franchisor to understand and appreciate the benefits a happy healthy franchise community bring to a brand. Although it seems logical that any franchisor would understand this, it took engaging you guys to get their attention. Your reputation, influence and counsel were critical in affecting management and cultural change at Jack in the Box. We are excited about our future with the new leadership team.”

– F. Michael Norwich, Jr.
