"Our company worked with Brent in optioning the rights to produce a book as a film. He acted as our point person for all outside communications on the matter and kept us up to date. We went point by point through the various terms together and it felt like a real team effort when we got the deal done."

"Brent helped me renegotiate the terms of an agreement I had with my agent. As someone who did not have a lawyer previously (which caused me to get into this mess), I appreciated that Brent walked me through the important stuff to get a sense of what I needed to go forward. I'm happy to continue working with Brent whenever I have issues or questions."
