Robert Pafundi gave me some very practical advice on an issue of entertainment law with privacy aspects. His advice was very specific and practical. Apart from that, Robert is very friendly, responsive, and fun to work with. Look no further.

I own and operate a Los Angeles based talent agency. A few years back I left a larger talent agency and was sued when attempting to start my new business. After consulting with numerous firms, I settled on Rob Pafundi and it was honestly one of the best decisions I've ever made. Rob was intelligent, strategic, and very experienced. His rates were very competitive and he over delivered. We ended up with the ideal outcome and fairly quickly. We remain friends to this day and I have recommended Rob to other industry professionals and he continues to deliver.

My name is Joseph, I'm an LA based actor that had a dispute with a Modeling and Talent Agency that went through to litigation.
Robert Pafundi represented me in this entertainment matter and from our very first consultation I knew I was going to be in good hands. He was professional, communicative and honest through every step of the process.
Robert always made sure that I was informed, that I reviewed all materials and knew what I was up against. He was never pushy while still having strong convictions. Robert was willing to help me sort through all my evidence and determine what was helpful. I've never had someone fight so hard for me and Robert refused to give in when we felt like we were being stifled.
When it came to fees he was very fair and offered several different options.
Having to hire an attorney is never something you necessarily want to do but if you need to I would highly suggest, Robert Pafundi. I would definitely hire him again.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I strongly endorse this lawyer's work. I have known Robert Pafundi as a friend and associate for over 40 years. His skills as an attorney are top notch, and more importantly, he is a man of the highest integrity. He is highly respected by his clients for his results and honesty, and I have seen the respect he receives from his opponents as well. Although he specializes in Entertainment Law, his experience and attention to detail make him one of the top litigation attorneys in the state and federal courts.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I strongly endorse this lawyer's work. I have worked on numerous cases with Mr. Pafundi over a period of close to 30 years. His legal skills are outstanding and his ethics impeccable. His rare inside knowledge of entertainment law, having been both a SAG Franchised Talent Agent and a TMA endorsed Talent Manager give him an edge in any entertainment law dispute. I worked with him on some very high-profile entertainment law matters, and saw first-hand the benefits of that special knowledge. In addition, he is an all-around great guy.
