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.

Daniel Palmer not only takes pride in his work, but he actually cares about his clients. Daniel is an excellent advocate that actually listened to what I had to say. I never felt like another number to him, and I never had to refresh his memory about my case. He was always upfront about options and outcomes. I would recommend Daniel to anyone that needs someone to represent them effectively.


Mr. Daniel Palmer saved me! He is a hard-working and brilliant lawyer who knows the intricacies and complexities of criminal law. He used this knowledge and expertise along with much time spent researching case law to reduce the prosecutor’s case to hearsay, which is to say that it ended up being a very weak case. As a result, my case was dismissed, and I’m free to move on with my life.


Mr. Palmer is very professional and punctual. He never tried to convince me to agree to something I knew I was not guilty of. He listens very carefully and does what he can (legally) for his client. As a result my case was dismissed. If you're looking for a good professional lawyer, Mr. Palmer is the person you're looking for.


Daniel was always available. He was considerate and helpful. If he didn't know the answer he found it or found someone who knew it. I had an incident where I needed to leave him a message around 12:30am and he called back 10 minutes after the message was left for him. He was fantastic and made me feel at ease with my situation. If you need a lawyer Daniel is definitely the way to go. He will take great care of you in whatever situation you find yourself in.


The possibility of going to trial for my criminal case was a very scary thing in my recent life. I mean think about it: it could have destroyed my life. I have a lot going for me, and the good Lord has really blessed me. Yes, I made lots of stupid mistakes (I’m only human) BUT I wasn’t guilty of that which I was accused. For this reason, it was a great relief knowing that I had a brilliant, hard-working, and compassionate lawyer fighting for me. You simply cannot find a better lawyer. He’s truly the best!
