About Us


“Trio Law has been by far the easiest firm we have worked with. Franchise law is complex and understanding parts of it can be difficult. Briar at Trio Law quickly learned our personality and risk tolerance and offers legal advice in a language we can easily understand. Before working with Briar, the yearly registration process was frustrating and took a lot of our time. He has made the entire process very easy and quick to get through. Trio Law also has been a good partner to work through the unique franchisor/franchisee relationship issues that we have gone through. They always look at the issue and provide a plan that is both realistic and cost effective.”

-Tim, President of franchise system operating in 16 states

-Jeff, multi-brand and multi-unit franchisee owner

"Throughout my 35 years in the business world, I have worked with a number of attorneys. Briar has a responsiveness and attention to detail that holds him a cut above the rest. As an elite practitioner, his delivery of balanced and precise council is the norm. Briar is a top-notch business strategist and I place a great importance on the unique perspective he brings to the table. I look forward to continuing our relationship far into the future."

-Dave, Founder of multiple businesses and franchise systems

"Briar guided myself and a large number of franchisees through a legal conflict with our franchisor.  He took time to really understand the intricacies of our business which was instrumental in the resolution of our dispute.  He consistently walked us through each step of the process from discovery to mediation to conclusion.  The guidance provided by Briar was invaluable.  I would emphatically recommend Briar to anyone involved in the franchise industry in need of legal counsel."

-Jeff, multi-brand and multi-unit franchisee owner

"As a small business owner, going into retirement and selling my business, I was not very well versed in the laws, surrounding such things.  Briar was very professional, personable and thorough in preparing and providing the required documents and walking  me through the details that would ensure my clear understanding of the process.  He was also very straightforward and fair with his fees. Thank you for everything."


-Mike and Linda, retired business owners
