Michael has been an excellent partner through the early stages of starting my business. He laid out my options very clearly and was always available to help me navigate the early stages of incorporating and then growing the company. I will continue to work with Michael and have recommended him wholeheartedly to friends and colleagues.

Michael's contract work for my new company has been outstanding. He wrote exceptionally solid contracts for everyone hired to work on my company's films: from the director to the actors to the videographer and post production editor. Moreover, Michael provided exceptional value for me by reviewing contracts given to me by fiscal sponsors, taking the time to ensure that I understood every detail I was signing onto and making strategic and insightful recommendations that strengthened the contract I was signing. I recommend Michael highly as an entertainment industry attorney.
