About Julian

Practice areas

 Julian is an attorney (although he prefers the term "legal ninja"), music producer, and entrepreneur.  In short, he is a pretty cool guy (as far as lawyers are concerned that is).  

 

Julian started Cordero Law with the goal of revolutionizing the way law firms work. He hopes to achieve this by shifting away from the focus most traditional law firms hold dearly. A traditional law firm cares more about ensuring clients are billed properly than the work they are doing. As the result of this inappropriate focus, the public perception of lawyers has spiraled downhill. Most people hate lawyers. Julian wants to change this.

 

The philosophy of Cordero Law is to become a team member to its clients. We will work with our clients rather than for them. We will ensure there is an open channel of communication between us and the clients. And we will do all this while finding creative solutions to our client’s problems. 

 

In addition to founding Cordero Law, Julian also recently established Music Regulation Inc., an information hub (or blog if you want to be less fancy about it) that discusses the legal issues surrounding the music industry. He caters this blog to both musicians and entertainment lawyers by writing in a plain English style that everyone can understand.

 

In his spare time (whenever that is anymore), Julian also produces Hip Hop and R&B songs. He is a classically trained musician and began his love for music at the age of eight when he first picked up the viola. Julian has produced records for Grammy award winning musicians and has been recognized among his peers for his talents.  Julian plans to one day win a Grammy of his own in the “Producer of the Year” category.

Very Knowledgeable
Julian has helped me make the right decisions for my business. As a small business owner in the music industry, I have had to request legal advice regarding copyrights and trademarks. Julian is an expert in his field and truly cares about his clients' needs. I have recommended him to my family for their business needs and will continue to do so.

When I went to Julian I didn't know much about businesses. Julian helped me decide between forming an LLC and S Corporation outlining the pros and cons of each one. After we discussed, Julian made sure that I was comfortable with my decision and had the whole thing done for me in a few days. He is great.

Genius!
I came to Julian after a friend referred me to him. I am a singer and was signing a deal with a major label and didn't know what I was agreeing to. Julian sat down and explained to me what the contract meant in plain English. Julian also negotiated to try to get me the better deal. I was surprised how much better if a contract he got me.

Business Formation
Julian helped me when I was confused as to what business to form. He really did a great job explaining everything to me and laid out the differences between an LLC and a Corporation.
