Dickey’s franchise owners & former Dickey’s franchise owners who feel they’ve been burned by DBRI are encouraged to contact Kelly Spann at Fortman Law to arrange a free initial, confidential consultation. Fortman Law is a fierce and principled franchisee law firm headed by attorney Jon Fortman. Fortman Law has earned high marks from UnhappyFranchisee.Com for its advocacy on behalf of franchise owners.
(UnhappyFranchisee.Com) by Sean Kelly, publisher, UnhappyFranchisee Regular readers of Unhappy Franchisee know that we are big fans of the Fortman Law team of Jon Fortman, Kelly Spann, and Teresa Kirchner.
So we were pleased that Fortman Law had agreed to represent a couple of franchisees in their battles with (in our opinion) one of the nastiest, most litigious franchisor bullies that we’ve encountered in the past decade: Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. (DBRI).
We were even more pleased when Fortman Law agreed to provide free initial, fully confidential consultations to both current Dickey’s franchise owners who are still operating, and former Dickey’s franchise owners who have closed their stores.
If you are a current or former Dickey’s Barbecue Pit franchise owner, contact Kelly Spann at Fortman Law:

NOTE: This post is not paid advertising nor has it been reviewed by Fortman Law. We do not receive any referral fees or advertising fees from Fortman Law for recommending them to Dickey’s franchise owners.
This is an unpaid endorsement prompted by our hope that Dickey’s franchise owners will be able to band together and remedy what appears to us to be extremely predatory and unconscionable franchise practices.
Fortman Law has the right to limit the number or scope of consultations. If we’ve overpromised, it’s on us not them… but give them a call. They’re good people and sincerely care.
Fortman Law is Sometimes Able to Work on Contingency – So Call Them Even if Dickey’s Has Left You Broke
OK, Jon Fortman might not want me saying this as he is a staunch under-promiser, but I have seen them in action and they will do whatever they can to minimize fees and will work on contingency whenever possible.
From what I understand, the ability to work on contingency is itself contingent on being able to work with a number of similarly situated franchisees, either individually or in a group action, so it is worth having an initial consultation as soon as possible even if you are concerned that you can’t afford much (or anything) toward legal fees.
You’ve got nothing to lose by talking to them.
Are you a Current or Former Employee or Contractor Disturbed by Dickey’s Business Practices? Or a Vendor or Business Associate With a Nagging Conscience?

Or if you have information about DBRI’s business practices that could be useful to those being sued by and/or suing Dickey’s, please feel free to call Kelly Spann at Fortman Law in confidence.
