"Brenda Chavez negotiated various deals for me including my producer deal for International Emmy-winner, El Vato. Brenda is smart, detailed oriented, thorough and sharp. She has an incredible ability to persuade the opposite party to get you the deal you deserve. On every deal, Brenda got me paid what I was worth and successfully protected my intellectual property. Although soft-spoken and gentle, this Ivy-League Latina attorney is a shark. Anyone would be blessed to have Brenda Chavez represent him/her."
