As former in-house attorneys, we started the firm to act as “outside in-house counsel” to our clients and have stayed true to our goal. We work together to get to a “yes” to help our clients comply with the law and manage risk while achieving their goals.
We provide our clients with practical solutions, the highest quality of legal services, extraordinary responsiveness and unparalleled value.
We keep an open mind when counseling our clients and about our fees. As such, the firm welcomes alternative billing arrangements.
Terry Franzén and Loretta Salzano founded the firm in 1997 to respond to the legal needs of the consumer financial services industry. Since our inception, our client base has broadened while we continue to serve as compliance, corporate, and employment counsel for our clients. The firm maintains the highest professional standards while fostering an environment devoted to maintaining a healthy balance among work, family and community.
Franzén and Salzano is a full service, A-rated law firm, serving the lending industry. We offer our clients skilled counsel combined with innovative approaches to conducting business within the boundaries of the law.
