What our happy clients say

  • We needed John to review a contract for us and he was able to find all the subtle ways we would have been at a disadvantage had we signed the original. With his input, we were able to negotiate from a position of power and successfully sign an equitable agreement.

  • What can I say about Richard other than he is an awesome guy and truly a pleasure to work with. I’ve known Richard for a few years and he is my “GUY TO TURN TO” for all things entertainment law. He is the one of the most honest and reliable lawyers I have ever had a chance to work with and he is also a great friend.

  • Swift, strong, and detail oriented are all words to describe John Fagerholm. I’ve caught him in the midst of chaos and he still took a few minutes to give me life-changing information. It’s definitely who you know and who knows you. Call him when you need him, I do!
