David has been very comprehensive and efficient to allow me to exit from a french "connected" franchise in Florida , in less than 1 month, which allow me now to save my investment of 100 keuro as a french E2 visa investor. Due to his strong action, and negociation abilities on a daily basis, he had saved all our french family from a big disaster because we had invested all our savings in this florida business to live the american dream which was in fact a strong nightmare as a new age slavery....
Thank you so much david to have been successfull to unslave our arms in 1 month

David Azrin was knowledgeable, accessible and dedicated. He is honest and when my problem was out of his area of specialization, he found another equally excellent and aboveboard lawyer to help me. Mr. Azrin did such a remarkable job that I have recommended him to other friends in need of legal advice.
He is a gift to his profession. He was such a talented and powerful advocate that, only hours after presenting the case, the other party capitulated.
I am glad to have met David Azrin.

I would highly recommend David's services. He was prompt and extremely knowledgeable about many areas of the law from the very start. I have witnessed David's honesty, diligence, and hard work first-hand. He and his staff operate in an efficient and organized manner to obtain my desired results in a timely fashion through all of my business dealings with him. He is also sensitive to my business needs and extends wise and useful ideas/suggestions in order for me to make the correct strategic decisions. I have utilized David's services in the areas of trademark and franchise law. I know there's a lot of unsatisfactory reviews about lawyers, but David Azrin is definitely a good seed.
