WHO WE ARE :
We're a full service law firm specializing in quality legal services to the Media (television anchors, reporters, and producers; radio personalities; columnists; and authors), as well as to individuals and businesses.
We represent more than 100 people in newsrooms across the country, including some of the highest paid news anchors, meteorologists and sports anchors in local television. In our 30 years in business, we have developed a wide network of industry contacts, including those who make hiring decisions.
Our firm is well positioned to maximize deals in today's competitive, changing and cost conscious (salary cuts and staff reductions) environment, a time when it is especially vital to have a representative who is abreast of rapidly changing station and company needs and limitations. While we're attorneys and knowing the law and precedents involved are important, it's often even more important to know the art of what's possible and how a given opportunity positions a client for his or her next move. Experience and contacts count.
Our firm operates by the credo of always helping our clients present themselves in the best light, respecting our clients and our adversaries, being honest with client expectations and constructively critical about performance, and by helping clients be the best professionals they can be.
Although our practice is predominantly focused on media representation, we also have more than three decades of experience representing clients in a wide variety of estate planning, litigation, family law, class action, corporate, real estate, and intellectual property matters.
