I serve as the legal and business advisor to clients in media, music, theater, film, television, games, and high technology. I also have a thriving estate planning practice.
Although a majority of my clients are either in LA or San Francisco, my practice is international in scope with clients also in Italy, England, and France.

I've known Lin for a number of years now and have also worked with him on various entertainment projects. He is a rare breed among attorneys. While he clearly knows his craft and guides his clients with expertise, he also does so while remaining gracious and genuine with all parties involved, including clients, opposing counsel and others. This expertise combined with a very rare persona has recently led me to suggest Lin as counsel for a party for which a current client is negotiating a film joint venture with. With just a bit of research and one phone call, they quickly became interested in bringing Lin on board. Now I can look forward to working across the table with him as well!
