David was a total rock star through and through. He took everything daunting and stressful about the legal aspect of starting our production company and made it not only painless, but actually quite enjoyable! Here is an attorney not only incredibly capable and sensitive to a company’s needs, but one who has great talent for entertainment law, too. After several bad experiences working with two separate large firms in the past it felt like we struck gold meeting David. He took the time to get to know our company and what mattered to us, and the whole experience felt remarkably personal and considerate. We can rest easily knowing that we have David in our corner for any of our future projects, and we would highly recommend him to anyone working in the film industry at any capacity!

I had no idea where to start regarding legal help when a production company offered me an attachment agreement for a realty television project I produced. I spoke to several attorneys, including a couple at large firms, before connecting with David. He was the first attorney who made me feel that I could be treated fairly as a first-time independent producer and earn money from the project. He improved the terms of the company's offer and I look forward to working with him on future deals.
David was very responsive and easy to work with. I recommend him highly!

David Davoli represented me for a short period of time in regards to a contract negotiation. From the get go he exhibited tremendous knowledge and expertise in contract law and negotiations while having exceptional bedside manner throughout the entirety of the process (something that is very hard to come by these days).
I have worked with larger firms in the past but nothing compares to the personal touch you get with a smaller firm like Davoli Law. He fought tooth and nail for me and I walked away with the best possible deal I could have received. He went above and beyond and I would recommend him and his services to anyone.

David helped me negotiate a documentary with the BBC. His knowledge and skill with the development and legal affairs were remarkable.

I would highly recommend David Davoli. He is prompt in responding to your legal needs, something that is sorely lacking in regards to most attorney's. David provides excellent guidance in explaining your options in important legal matters. He is someone you would want on your side, when you need the services of a lawyer

I have worked with David Davoli over the last three years and have the highest regard for his professionalism, entertainment-industry knowledge and well-reasoned legal advice. He has served on a number of panels I've organized for independent filmmakers on film financing as well as providing legal assistance regarding a startup venture. In both areas, Mr. Davoli has demonstrated a thorough command of the legal and business issues at issue.

Everyone disparages attorneys until they need a good one. David Davoli is one of the most honest, hard working and acknowlegeable attorneys in the entertainment business. He's smart, intuitive, infinitely knowledgeable. No matter what has come up on the four projects on which he has represented me, he was always ahead of the game and knew precisely what needed to be done. He's negotiated deals on Movies of the Week, a drama series, a co-production on a feature film with complex foreign partnerships, even book and publishing deals. He's a gentleman, a class act - you can't say enough good things about him. One of the best anywhere.

In general, David Davoli approached all of my business with the utmost integrity and always provided sound counsel. He is very thorough and his attention to detail instills a great deal of confidence in the projects he works on. His work is timely and I always found him accessible. When he didn't have the answer to a question immediately he always correctly set my expectations as to when I should receive an answer.
David Davoli successfully negotiated several entertainment (film and television) contracts where I was either talent or a producer. In each instance I felt that I received a deal that was either equal to the industry standard or as in most cases better than the standard. He has also drafted agreements for my company that were used in rights acquisition situations and in each case followed through with the rights holder to ensure proper execution of documents and transfer of all materials under the contracts.
