I recently used John Seay to look over a contract. He advised me on a couple of changes and got everything straightened out and explained everything to me thoroughly. He had helped me in the past with some advice on copyrights and necessary processing steps to get paid for my work. It all worked great for me. Really good bedside manner, too. Pleasant, but professional. Thanks, John!
I can't say enough about how excellent it is to work with John Seay. As a musical artist, he has navigated me through complex legal matters while providing sound professional advice in terms that I can understand. He not only knows the ins and outs of entertainment law, he is also very knowledgeable of the music industry in general, and I have found his insight invaluable to my career. He is approachable, friendly, and straight forward. He takes the time to really answer your questions in a thorough and clear manner. He seems to genuinely care about your success as an artist. I HIGHLY recommend working with John.
I am a freelance writer but unfamiliar with book contracts. The details in the contract were making me feel very uncomfortable with the project -- specifically, the timeline, and certain costs. It felt like my rights were not being represented, so I was referred to John by the Atlanta Bar Association. He calmed me down, advised me to call the publisher, express my concerns, and try to negotiate changes for the greater good of the project. He gave me specific language to use in presenting my requests so they would have legal weight. I just got off the phone with the publisher, and it looks like everything will be worked out -- and my needs will be met. They are also agreeing to rewrite the contract to include these points. I very much appreciate Johns insights into the publishing industry. He provided very good advice. I will certainly have him review any future contracts.
