Lindsay helped me in the early stages of the formation of my business entity. His expert assistance was a tremendous help and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a creative and caring attorney.

I sought Lindsay's advice on a producer's agreement that was offered to me and on a music licensing agreement I was offering to someone else. Lindsay has the rare gift of relaying complex legal concepts in easily understandable language, an ability which I view as extremely important when considering a lawyer. I would encourage those in the entertainment community especially to reach out to him with any legal concerns or questions.

Lindsay worked with me as an attorney on trust and business issues and highly recommend him. He explains the legal language in terms a lay person understands and is very careful to point out the implications of a contract, while keeping in mind that a business inherently has to operate with risk. In addition he does this with patience and humor and very high ethical standards.

Lindsay is the most personable lawyer I have worked with. Which makes what is often a tedious process palatable. His work ethic is superlative and I'm grateful for his patient persistence is working to the right outcome. I've worked with many good lawyers and Lindsay is one of the best.

The exact details of my meeting Lin for the first time a few years ago are a little fuzzy. It was at a Film Finance Seminar at the LA Film Festival, I think. We struck up a conversation, grabbed a coffee together. I forget what we talked about. Sailing, perhaps. He's an avid sailor. But what I remember vividly is my first impression of him: friendly, warm, generous, sharp and savvy. This is still the impression I have of him today. He's the kind of guy you trust, not because he says the right things, which he does, but because he's not aware that he's saying the right things, he's not there to say the right things but to talk to you, find out who you are, what you need and how he can help you. He is a genuine decent human, who also happens to be a great lawyer. Fortunate for me that I kept his card when, sometime after that coffee meeting, I made a short film with a producing partner who turned out to be not only off his rocker, but litigious to boot. It should have been a warning bell when he described to me early in our relationship all the people he had sued who had "wronged" him. In any case, our disagreement was relatively minor, but the threat of a lawsuit is scary for someone who’s never experienced it. I needed counsel and Lin was the first person who came to mind. He took my call immediately, calmed me down, and patiently listened as I explained the situation, then had very specific advice for how to deal with it. In the end, my disagreement with the producer was resolved quickly and easily outside of a courtroom by an agreement Lin drew up at a price I could afford. Since then, Lindsay has been there for me every time I’ve needed anything. I feel very good that he’s in my corner. I’d recommend him as the first point of contact for any legal question, problem, or situation. If he doesn’t have the answer, he’ll get you to someone who does.

Lin Spiller is, by a wide margin, the best attorney I have ever worked with (and I've had some excellent lawyers). He is rigorous, totally ethical, a joy to talk with, and supremely dedicated to my interests as his client.

Lindsay "gets" what I need. He's an excellent listener and cuts right to the essence of the matter. He doesn't waste my time or money.

I have had the pleasure of working with Lindsay Spiller on a number of occasions. A good friend of mine initially recommended Lindsay to help me with a Trust for our family. I found him extremely easy to work with. I had done a great deal of the work on my own he only charged me for the contract review where many attorneys went for the all or nothing approach. I decided after that experience to make him our family attorney. Since that time I have contacted Lindsay on a number of occasions for legal advice, and whenever the issue was an area outside of his expertise, he would always refer me to excellent resources. I recently had Lindsay help me review a contract and offer some advice for a new business I started and his feedback was extremely helpful and relevant. He is the guy I go to first for all my personal and business legal issues.

Lindsay has helped my company license music from all four major labels. He has excellent connections, and a good process for finding areas of agreement and making deals happen. He also helped my family with an estate plan. His estate planning process was very succinct and direct. I highly recommend Lindsay to anyone needing similar services.
