Atlanta Entertainment Lawyer Zebulon K. Chandler is not your average lawyer. A seasoned entertainment lawyer with a career built in tv, music, and marketing, he represents producers, songwriters, companies, artists, and labels in music, film, and technology deals. 

At Chandler and Chandler Law Group in Atlanta, Georgia where he practices law with his esteemed partner trial lawyer Walker Chandler, he is known for being approachable and yet serious about business.  His experience and background relating to creators and the companies they work with is vital in helping clients craft win-win agreements and resolving the occasional impasse.  The firm has practice areas in entertainment, personal injury, and business law.

Mr Chandler has worked on deals with labels and companies like Sony, Atlantic, Warner Music Group, Viacom, BMG, and Primary Wave among others.

In a variety of deal types he represents talent and companies including multiple Grammy Nominated Artists, Multi-Platinum Producers, Major Investors, and Technology Entrepreneurs.

When he is not working on key agreements for clients he can be found visiting clients on set or in studio sessions.  And when not doing that he might be recording content for his daily video series on Instagram @atlentlaw

Attorney "Zeb" Chandler studied at the University of Georgia Terry College of Business where he earned his bachelors degree in Management Information Systems.  After UGA, he moved to LA where he worked in the television industry for an entertaiment marketing firm specializing in product placement and co-branding.  He later returned to Georgia and built a dj and event production company among other business and work acheivements, and later graduated from from John Marshall Law School in Atlanta where he received his Juris Doctorate.

The Firm's Goal: Quality,Professional,Responsive services for every client every time. 

Attorney Chandler is a native Georgian, (sharing the same name as his hometown Zebulon, Georgia!) and is also an avid linguist.  He has studied Japanese, Chinese, Turkish, Portugese, and Spanish.  When he is not working with clients, he enjoys playing basketball and spending time with his wife, family, friends, and ridgeback.

Zeb is the man!
Zeb is extremely professional and thorough. He makes sure that any deal offered to me is in my best interest and that the process is as efficient as possible. He’s intelligent, easy to work with and is always readily available when needed, even if he’s preoccupied he will still take the time to help however he can. Thanks, Zeb, for all that you do!

A Great Attorney To Have On Your Side!
As a novice who was nervously entering into my first real entertainment contract negotiation I feel fortunate to have had Zebulon (Zeb) guide the way. From the very beginning Zeb was the most responsive and accommodating with his time and answered all my questions via emails and/or phone calls around the clock (including nights and weekends). Additionally, his fast turnaround on comments from the opposing sides is impressive and comprehensive. Zeb was able to protect all my rights and able to produce an even better outcome then originally sought after. Zeb is committed to building long term relationships with both his clients and networks within the Entertainment industry. I cannot recommend Zeb strongly enough to anyone who needs competent, conscientious and fair representation in all areas of entertainment and copyright law as he is 1000% committed.

The good guys
Chandler and Chandler has been the most helpful of any attorneys I have ever dealt with. They maintain a very fair minded approach in litigation and do an excellent job in making sure the other side maintains that perspective as well. Their professionalism, integrity, and experience is such a bonus when having to navigate legal challenges. In everything from family law to business protection they have been my counsel. They are the good guys.

Best Court Room Experience EVER!
Zeb helped me fight a minor traffic violation. I have been to traffic court in Fulton County before and received absolutely no grace from the solicitors. Zeb not only took the time to explain to me the entire process so that I knew exactly what was going on at all times, but he was also able to get the ticket dropped. No ticket, no fees, no problem! Thanks Zeb for excellent representation and customer server.
