You know how when as a business owner, you hire an attorney not really to just get law advice, but to be your right hand person to help you make smart business decisions that just happen to involve legal matters? Yeah, that's Lisa.
Some lawyers just spew legalese and you waste billable hours just trying to understand how to make an actionable business decision from their 'advice' that you can't yet even understand. Lisa acts are your counsel, not your legal wonk.

I spoke with Ms. Borodkin during a free consultation and found her to be very courteous, extremely generous and abundantly clear. She quickly and succinctly explained the issues regarding my case to me, and she then advised me on the most prudent and economical way that I may proceed — with, or without, her assistance. Also, I felt very strongly that she was concerned about me, and my well-being, as a person; and, I was NEVER under the impression that she thought of me as ONLY a source of income, as have MANY of the other lawyers that I have spoken to about my case. In short, Ms. Borodkin is not only a great attorney, but also a wonderful human being.
Thank you very much Lisa Borodkin! Keep on fighting the good fight.

Ms. Borodkin is easy to talk with, KNOWS the entertainment field VERY well, and was able to answer my questions thoroughly. When it comes time to have documents reviewed, I'm definitely going to rely on her expertise. The 15 minutes I spent with her on the phone was invaluable, gave me peace of mind, and made it clear she's the entertainment attorney I'd like to work with on future projects. (I'm VERY glad I clicked on the Avvo ad via Spotify!)

Extremely intelligent, honest and responsive. She will get at the heart of the matter and provide the best results.
She is knowledgeable and more than anything she is fair. She cared about me, instead of how much money she can make off. Don't wait, Lisa is who you want to work with!

Aloha to all who reads this. I contacted Lisa via Avvo to help me with getting a TV placement with my new song I had written and performed on a Food Network show called Junk Food Flip. When the producers sent me the materials release form to sign, I was absolutely clueless and knew I would be making a huge mistake without counsel. Lisa to the rescue! She asked me what I wanted, provided excellent guidance, dealt with the network on my behalf, and reworded the release and got me more than I expected with full approval from the network in no time! Thank you Lisa...I have officially made you my lawyer for all the trouble I'm about to get into! Mahalo Nui Loa!

I spoke with Lisa during a free consultation and she was courteous, generous and clear. She quickly framed the issues for me using two case studies and advised me on the most economical ways to proceed with or without her assistance. Thanks Lisa!

I was in a difficult contract negotiation with a company that was trying to take advantage. Friends and family advised me to let it go and chalk it up to experience. I had spent two years and all my resources completing the project so I was pretty wiped out financially. I was up against a goliath. This being my first legal matter, I really needed someone with extensive experience in intellectual property and entertainment law. After an exhaustive search, I found Lisa. She is brilliant, well organized, and straight forward, which is exactly what I needed. I couldn't have done it without her. She really made the best out of the convoluted situation. I would not like to be on the receiving end of her fury. I will definitely reach out to her again. Thank you so much Lisa!

In preparing to license a product, I contacted Lisa for a consultation. She listened avidly to my questions and offered me a wealth of extremely helpful and constructive advice even though it was only a free consultation. Her consultation alone would have been worth paying for! She clarified my next steps immensely. Lisa is clearly a very friendly, honest, and knowledgable person. I will certainly be retaining her services once the deal reaches the contract negotiation stage.

I don't know what I would do without Lisa! She was a beacon of light in the very complex world of entertainment law. I reached out to her because I had a contractual hiccup with a production company. I contacted her late on a Friday afternoon. She promptly responded, asked for documentation regarding my situation and told me she would get back to me the following day, which happened to be a Saturday. I thought she would take the weekend to look over my case and call me back on Monday, but she didn't! She called back on a Saturday, was extremely thorough with her questions, and very patient with me in answering all of mine. I felt like I was her most important client! What I liked most about Lisa is that she is visionary and strategic and looks at the big picture. Many times I became reactionary to the responses we were getting back from the production companies legal team and Lisa had the wherewithal to keep me focused on our primary objectives. She helped me navigate through social media, copyright and trademark applications, and is very well versed in IP and entertainment law. I appreciated her professionalism and her advise to keep things amicable between both parties, but more importantly, that when the opposing legal counsel became difficult and belligerent, Lisa swiftly put them on their heels. Needless to say, there have been no other issues with said production company. I used Lisa another time for direction and advice with another legal contract. Again, she was quick to reply and efficient in getting things in order. Lisa is a definitely an asset to any team and I highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed!
