Dr. Charlotte Lacroix and VBA have been very instrumental in helping me grow this practice after I bought out my partner 2 years ago. She was able to help me hire on many new specialists and assisted with the contract negotiations to achieve a successful and balanced practice. I will continue to utilize Dr. Lacroix and her services as long as I own this practice and when I am ready to sell in the future. She is one of my closest and most trusted advisors.

I have used Dr. Charlotte Lacroix and Veterinary Business Advisors for approximately 10 years. The first impression you get is the consistent professionalism and courtesy with every phone call into the office. You immediately get the feelings that you are important to them. Dr. Lacroix and VBA are that professional organization that will fight for you best interest, navigate you legally from harm’s way with a caring and personal touch. I cannot recommend them more.

Dr. LaCroix exceeded our expectations. She was extremely knowledgeable and addressed issues we were not even aware of. We were extremely fortunate to work with someone who was professional and gave immediate attention to our concerns. Dr. LaCroix definitely has earned her national reputation and our respect.

I have worked with Kellie Olah, PHR on multiple occasions regarding employee situations, practice policies, and employment laws specific to our animal hospital. Every time I call, she is always pleasant, knowledgeable, professional and a helpful coach! She is an asset to our practice.

Hospital Manager, Route 516 Animal Hospital

The services of Dr. Lacroix and her staff were invaluable while recently negotiating a potential new position and reviewing the employment contract. Her expertise of the idiosyncrasies of the law pertaining to our negotiations and unique business model was crucial both for myself and for my prospective employer and saved us both from potential legal headaches. She is very detail-oriented essential, because the devil is in the detail when it comes to contract law and negotiating! She insisted that rather than making any assumptions, everything be clear between both parties. More than this, she served as my coach and cheerleader during a tough career/life transition. Her unique repertoire of skills and knowledge is unmatched and her support was critical. Thank you!

During the last 6 months Charlotte Lacroix and her firm Veterinary Business Advisors, Inc. helped us at Greater Annapolis Veterinary Hospital with the sale of our corporation to National Veterinary Advisors, Inc. From the negotiation phase through the final settlement on April 1st, 2016 her personal and legal advice was essential to us. Her cheerful, pleasant nature combined with a thorough understanding of and experience with the sale of veterinary hospitals was much appreciated in helping us through our Letter of Intent, Sales Contract, Employment Agreements, Long-term Lease and other critical documents. Speaking for myself and with the agreement of my 3 other partners, we can highly recommend Charlotte and her professional staff to other veterinarians who may need help with practice transition.
