I am a songwriter/recording artist that recently relocated to Atlanta to pursue a career in music. Estabished melody-writers have highly praised and seem eager to record my lyrics for me, some for free, some for a songwriters percentage. Common sense says that I obviously am in immediate need of an attorney, at the risk of losing alot of royalty income. As I am starting from scratch, I have no money to pay up front. I would ask what is the criteria that an attorney would use to determine when deciding whether to take on a client like myself?
