Schuyler “Rocky” Reidel helped me through the process of acquiring my franchise. He was very thorough with his review of the franchise disclosure documents, and gave me a very informative breakdown of what it entailed. Schuyler is a very knowledgeable franchise attorney, and gave me a secure peace of mind moving forward with acquisition of my franchise.

"Rocky" and Reidel Law is an excellent resource to review, analyze, and advise franchise agreements. He responds quickly, communicates well, and has the knowledge and competance to boil down large legal documents in a summary that is easy to understand. The summary clearly communicates the risks and requirements, and helps you understand and prioritize what modifications are possible. I'd strongly recommend his services.

Had a wonderful experience working with Schuyler 'Rocky' Reidel at Reidel Law Firm. I worked with him on reviewing the Franchisee agreement that I was interested in and he was really quick to get in touch and collect all the details from me. He completed the review quickly and it was very detailed and comprehensive. He also met and answered all the questions I had to my satisfaction. I am really pleased with his services and would recommend him.

Mr. Reidel is an honest and professional attorney. Although my case was outside of his area of expertise, he gave me recomendations for other attorneys that could help me. He was very freindly and gave me some advice for finding an attorney. I am a little disapointed that he couldnt represent me but I highly recomend him to others.

My business partner and I used the Reidel Law Firm to help us begin franchising our business concept. Anyone familiar with franchising knows that it is a complex process that can take months, if not years to complete successfully.  Mr. Schyler "Rocky" Reidel was absolutely instrumental in helping us achieve our goal of becoming franchise ready in about 12 weeks. His attention to detail, professionalism, responsiveness, and customer service were unparalleled. Mr. Reidel handled all manners of requests, including business formation, writing the franchise disclosure document and franchise agreement, filing trademark applications, doing due diligence with various state requirements, and beyond. When working with Mr. Reidel, it is immediately apparent that he is not only a skilled legal professional, but is also well versed in business operations-- an ideal combination for business owner clients.  We approached him with a novel, out-of-the-box concept, and Mr. Reidel's insightful comments and questions on our business operations and efficiencies made it clear that he takes a multi-faceted approach to his work. Mr. Reidel encouraged us to consider issues that would not only impact our current situation, but also serve us well as our brand grows. Beyond providing legal counsel, Mr. Reidel went above and beyond in making sure our experience as clients was top notch. He flew out to visit our facility in person, made himself available in the off-hours, quickly responded to inquiries, and even introduced us to connections from his personal network who would be able to assist us.  Mr. Reidel is friendly, personable, and easy to do business with.  Administrative transactions with the firm were transparent, efficient and hassle-free, especially considering that we were out of state clients. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience and highly recommend using the Reidel Law Firm for your legal needs.

We contacted Mr. Reidel to assist with a residential real estate acquisition. The project took much longer than expected but Schuyler was with us every step of the way. He provided sound legal advice, was very responsive to our needs and more importantly, considered our preferences in the decision making process. We felt that Schuyler always had our best interest in mind. Compared to other attorneys and firms we have used in the past, Schuyler Reidel would get two thumbs up from us and we would definitely consider asking for his help again in the future.
