Attorney at Law
After working in some of the nations top companies (such as CBS and Goldman Sachs) and most respected government organizations (such as the US Attorney's Office), Julian decided to branch out and start his own law firm, Cordero Law LLC.
In his spare time, Julian produces Hip Hop and R&B songs. Julian has produced records for Grammy award winning musicians and hopes to one day win a Grammy of his own in the "Producer of the Year" category.
"When I went to Julian I didn't know much about businesses. Julian helped me decide between forming an LLC and S Corporation outlining the pros and cons of each one. After we discussed, Julian made sure that I was comfortable with my decision and had the whole thing done for me in a few days. He is great!"
"Julian helped make sure that I was paid what was owed to me as an artist. I had a song that was being played heavily on the radio and tv and was not getting paid for it. Julian's knowledge of the music industry and entertainment field really showed when he walked me through what it takes to get paid as a musician."
