Eli C Frank

Current City: San Francisco, CA

I practiced law in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for over 30 years with a focus on small business, corporate, real estate, condominium and franchise law. I also developed and managed many commercial and residential properties; owned and operated a major hotel; developed and operated a non-equity country club; developed condominiums, and built single-family homes. More recently, I have served as CFO of a lighting supply company, developed and operated a meat business producing sausages, and co-owned and operated an employment/staffing business. My SF SCORE counseling is thus as broad and varied as my business and legal experience permits. I am a problem solver who likes nothing better than to figure a way out of a dilemma. I am particularly pleased when a client says, before the end of the hour, you answered all of my questions and I understand what I have to do. I counsel face-to-face and via email and phone.
