  I am a solo practitioner in the Los Angeles area, with over thirty years of experience as a lawyer, corporate executive, and independent producer.  My practice focuses on transactional entertainment law, business law and new media law.  As a result of my background, I am able to view issues from a diverse perspective to benefit my clients.  I am available and responsive to my clients, return calls promptly, and handle work in a timely manner, and believe that working in this manner is a very important part of my representation.

| Hired Attorney
Informed Passionate Caring
In a word : excellent – Gary is everything that you could hope for when searching for an entertainment attorney who is both knowledgeable, and sincerely caring. I first met Gary over 10 years ago when was in need of setting up a production deal with the top television production company. Every step of the way he followed up, was transparent, and insured that contracts were carefully reviewed, approved, and negotiated.
