Entertainment Law

Avvo 10.0 Superb Top Attorney for Entertainment Law

The life of a musician can be extremely fun, exciting and full of great adventures, but it’s still highly important to protect your rights as an entertainer or individual in the entertainment industry. The musical age is currently in a do-it-yourself stage, which tempts artists to make their own music, record it themselves and even put together their own legal documents, effectively acting as their own lawyer. However, this can often be a bad move that can make a dissonant tone in your music career and life.

I would highly recommend this attorney...honest and explained everything the steps involved with parole...actually listens to customers and their questions


Probably helped me save my reputation after being slandered online. This is a lawyer you can trust to help you get through a crisis.


Daniel assisted me with many legal questions I had regarding a divorce and criminal case. He was excellent! The information he gave me was informative, honest, and easily understood. He went above and beyond to answer questions for me with detailed responses. Thanks, Daniel!


Daniel makes you feel like you're family. His attention to detail and constant communication make you feel at ease. Daniel explains what he is actively doing and makes sure you are aware of every step so that all parties are informed and can make informed decisions going forward. As if that were not enough, he remains the most accessible attorney I've ever worked with.


My wife was involved in an incredibly contentious divorce/custody case involving very high profile parties. Mr. Palmer provided thoughtful counsel to my wife to help minimize her chances of repercussions from the aforementioned parties. I would highly recommend Mr. Palmer for your legal needs.


Daniel assisted me with legal advice during a very painful situation a friend was going through. He was very professional, but he still made me feel like he really cared and wanted to help. His advice ended up being amazingly helpful and got us through a painful process. For accurate, professional, and human legal advice or assistance, he will always be my first choice. Thank you so much!


Mr Palmer did a good job on our case. Our family is very pleased with his hard wk and making sure that we had all information we needed for our case. We are very satisfied with his honesty and support.
