I started my firm with the goal of providing professional, friendly, and cost-effective representation in entertainment law, business law, copyright, trademark, and other areas relevant to creative individuals and businesses. I am blessed to have a practice that allows me to combine my legal, business, and musical experience to help others pursue their artistic and entrepreneurial dreams.
Having counseled clients and managed companies in diverse industries, I understand that everyone encounters legal and business issues that can seem overwhelming at times. I also recognize that those with the greatest need for assistance are sometimes the most reluctant to hire a lawyer because of the perceived cost and hassle. By using client-focused technology and offering innovative alternatives to hourly fees, I pride myself on delivering professional, friendly, and tailored representation to my clients.
