About Me

Alan J. Romero is the managing shareholder of, and lead trial attorney for, Romero Law, APC, a civil litigation firm located in Pasadena, California. Mr. Romero’s notable results have included a $3.05MM jury verdict in a jury trial related to the clarification of certain television distribution rights on behalf of STARZ Home Entertainment, LLC, a judgment of $2.76 million in a motion-picture fraud action on behalf of Anchor Bay Entertainment, LLC, and a $1.5MM settlement in a medical malpractice action which later resulted in a published decision which permanently altered California law with respect to the enforcement of Medi‑Cal liens as against injured minors.  More recently, Mr. Romero facilitated the launch of a $50MM international start-up and was selected as a Co-Chair of the California Employment Lawyers Association’s Immigrant Employee Rights Committee, in addition to realizing a number of discernibly favorable results at both the trial and appellate levels for his clients, ranging from Fortune 250 companies to individual litigants.

    When I was looking for outside counsel to handle an entertainment litigation matter, I am glad I went with Alan. He was able to deliver results by successfully taking the case to trial with a favorable jury verdict. I have also hired Alan to tackle on similar entertainment litigation matters and I would highly recommend him to others as well.
