Michael Garner franchise attorney destroyed our lives

Mr Garner advertises all over the place that he is the best franchise attorney, "protects" franchisees. what a load of nonsense. This fool destroyed our lives and the other franchisees too! He took on this case and maintained that this would be a slam dunk - favorite words. He told us "look there are 4 pots" that we can get money from in this case. The case was convoluted from the outset. Garner made it more so. We now know he INTENTIONALLY did this to keep us stuck in this lawsuit. The franchisors were willing to settle right from the outset, Garner kept telling us no way - we will make four times that. Basically while the suit continued the franchisors opened competing businesses right next to us - and destroyed our businesses. Garner said "don't worry this will work against them in the case". Theory is not real life. So in a few months they basically put all of us (except for one location, that was already doing so poorly) out of business. We lost our income livelihoods and everything. This man is EVIL - don't listen to a word he says. We were then told that even if we won a judgement we could never collect since they owned trusts and LLLP's and LLC's So it was all a disaster. Keep away from this evil man.

Liar. ruined our lives. thief. ***!

Michael Garner is supposed to be one of the best franchisee attorneys. That may be the case if you've got millions. For us-9 franchisees thats not the case. He said this was an easy case, and we would easily win. Far from the truth! He kept this case going on and on. At one point one of the plaintiffs fainted when Garners associate asked for another $25,000. All she said was "it will be okay - we accept credit cards" For garner it was ALL about the money. He kept taking and taking and achieving nothing. It turns out that the franchisor wanted to settle and he did NOT tell us that. Keep away from this farce.
