    Wade Neal has handled a number of trademark and copyright cases for my clients. I've also referred entertainment law issues to him. These are specialty areas of legal practice and I believe that Wade's depth of personal experience as well as his specific training make him uniquely qualified to represent clients in these practice areas. Its good to have someone in Pierce County with Wade's background and qualifications in the areas of copyright, trademark and entertainment law. .
