    A guy you can trust I am a fellow lawyer who has known Evan for about 20 years. We practice different kinds of law, so I don't have all that much experience dealing with him professionally. But I can say that he is intelligent, caring, and knows his stuff. I have called him a few times when friends/family have been dealing with copyright/trademark issues, and he would be my very first stop if I ever need to do that (or anything related to intellectual property) again. He's an all-star lawyer and an all-star human being. He gets my full endorsement in every way.
