Kurtz Law Group, a leading franchise law firm in Southern California with offices in both Woodland Hills and Santa Barbara, is proud to announce that Mark Melton, an attorney and serial entrepreneur, has joined the firm as a counsel attorney.

“I joined the Kurtz Law Group to continue my work in franchise law, bringing real-world business experience to our business clients, most of whom are in the franchise industry,” Melton said.

Melton brings unmatched experience to the Kurtz Law Group. His involvement with franchising spans more than 20 years.

Mostly recently, he sold Coverall Mountain & Pacific, a franchise company operating in six states with more than 560 franchisees and 2,600 business customers. The company, which he started in 1997, was twice named one of the 500 fastest-growing U.S. companies by Inc. Magazine. In addition, he started four companies from the ground up and has bought and sold several businesses.

Before becoming an entrepreneur, Melton was a senior vice president for product development for Home Savings of America and a product manager for Sunkist Growers.

He earned his law degree from the Santa Barbara College of Law, his MBA from Claremont Graduate University — Peter F. Drucker School of Management, and his bachelor’s degree in business administration and psychology from Cal State Fullerton.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
