An "anti-lawyer" with a heart, creative flair, accessibility & who'll tell it just like it is.
I'm what you'd call an "anti lawyer" since I'm a creative person first and foremost. I have no interest in working for the typical law firm & eschew those who behave like typical attorneys. Creative types in particular tend to like me since I'm also an actor, singer, writer and model with talent that has lent itself to legitimate opportunities. I even have an IMDB profile as well as an agent & a manager!!
Since I'm the first in my entire family to even go to law school and hardly came from means, I don't take kindly to snotiness about law schools and class rankings. Knowing this will save all concerned a lot of time.
I am also a no-nonsense, blunt person who doesn't take abuse from others; in fact, I'm known as "the enforcer" in my business.
I'm always happy to give advice to those who want to work in the entertainment industry and can give you much better guidance than "make good grades." Reciprocity and networking are highly valued in my book so however you treat me is how I'll treat you now and in the future.
My blog, The Angry Redheaded Lawyer, was recently linked to in Avvo so now it seems I have to add it here. Just note that it is a rant blog & is not for those who are overly sensitive or obsessed with political correctness. However, you will get a good gauge of who I am + a sense of honesty if you read it.
Finally, DO NOT ask me to read scripts, pitch your project, introduce you to famous people, etc. No one likes being used that way & I'm no exception.
