Hi. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide assistance. Without reviewing the NDA it is difficult to give an unequivocal answer. However, generally NDAs are a standard part of this process. The franchisor wants to protect their information and proprietary details. An attorney should be able to provide a flat fee (very nominal fee) to simply review the NDA and let you know if there is anything of concern.
If you would like, I am a licensed California attorney, we can schedule a premium service call when you can read the NDA to me and I can let you know if there is anything troublesome.
Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions or need anything clarified.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
