What is Entertainment Law?

Entertainment law includes the representation of the needs of small businesses and professionals in the entertainment industry, including the drafting and negotiating of contracts, formation of LLCs and other business entities, consulting on business issues, advising clients of their legal rights, and helping companies organize and define themselves.

What is my approach and experience with Entertainment Law?

I take a very personal and hands on approach to my entertainment representation. I provide counsel to talent, writers, directors, producers, managers, production and distribution companies in the film and television media, and music sectors from drafting and negotiating agreements for entertainers, executives in the entertainment industry as well as film and television distribution, production and licensing agreements.

My History

My courtroom and litigation experience started early in my legal career when I clerked for the United States Attorney’s Office, District of Colorado, and interned for the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. I have clerked for the law firm of White & Steele, P.C., practiced with Hull & Zimmerman P.C., and became a sole practitioner after my admission to the Colorado Bar in May 1996. In January 2000, I joined Miller & Steiert. Today, I practice entertainment law, representing producers, directors, and talent in contract, commercial, corporate, business formation and entertainment transactions. My practice also includes criminal law, protecting individuals’ Constitutional rights and also handling all avenues of commercial litigation, corporate business and First Amendment law.

My Philosophy

To this day, I believe that the Law is humankind’s feeble attempt to impose order on society. Unlike mathematics, the Law is subject to precedent, interpretation and argument. I continue to practice law diligently, apply my knowledge and seek the just solution.

“It is through controversy that your beliefs are tested.”Unknown

    I am sure you guys have heard about the Flordia University student tasered, if you haven’t check out this website. It shows a great clip of what happened. At my job we got in a huge debate on if this kid was right or not…I know for sure that we will most likely be seeing a law suit in the near future. This kid was practicing his first ammendment right to talk! And he was asking Kerry some good questions so for the police to be acting like that, I find it to be quite out of line and ridiculous. Enjoy the part in which he screams for help and the results of him being tasered….

    This case is something that should never have happened and should be thrown out of court the second it gets to a judge. After reading this news account here, http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071022/ap_on_re_us/book_controversy;_ylt=Arm_UPQj1sTHlEpOCHnpL7txFb8C
    I hope you agree with me that the teacher should not be arrested and the school board held accountable for their actions.
    The book in question, “Child of God”, was on the list that the English teachers in Tuscola had approved for a pre-advanced placement class. The novel, published in 1974, is about a town’s outsider who is falsely accused of rape and then begins killing people. The character lives in a cave with the victims’ decomposing bodies. According to the back cover, it “plumbs the depths of human degradation.” The book sounds pretty disgusting. I would prefer to not let my own kids read that book. However, if the book was approved by the school district, I should not raise any issue with a teacher assigning this book to be read. If there any objections by anyone against this book, the parents should be calling the school board and not going to the district attorney.

    I’m sure you heard about Andrew Cossley and his ultimate fate. Reputation is something that requires hard work to built, but it can be lost in no time when ethics becomes just another letter of law. Think about it.
