About Me

I grew up in the entertainment industry and went on to study Corporate Law as well as Law to become best qualified to serve ENTERTAINMENT clients. My 14 years of litigation experience in the Wall Street area of New York enables me to negotiate and litigate the most complex entertainment matter, while staying true to my own roots (see my IMDB profile). My clients receive my complete attention and know that I am available 24/7 to meet their needs. I work directly for clients and also work of counsel to law-firms who seek my specialized knowledge. See On account of my own experience being fleeced by greedy family court attorneys I hired, I currently offer a service to MEDIATE family law matters lo-bono. Have Westlaw.
