Wealth of knowledge, just what we needed
My friend and I are starting a music licensing partnership. Bruce offered a one-hour consultation for a very reasonable rate. He made clear that he does not act as an agent or manager, but he was interested in our project, spoke at length about music licensing and law, and referred us to numerous helpful sources. Bruce is smart, articulate, and easy to talk to. He invited us to call him again for additional help at any time.

Highly Recommend Bruce Colfin
As a professional photographer in New York, I found myself in a situation where I needed the representation of a lawyer in a copyright infringement matter I brought up with a major company. I came across Bruce Colfin at The Firm and gave him a call. I was left with a good impression from my initial consultation but wanted to look into some others before hiring. After calling and speaking with several other lawyers I decided to go with Bruce. He was personable and down-to-earth as well as straight forward and professional. He kept me informed throughout the case and advised me of all options along the way. We settled the matter quickly and with a favorable outcome, and in addition his fee was very reasonable with no "surprises" during or at the end of the case. I highly recommend Bruce Colfin
