I consider Dave Rodman to be an integral part of my team. Thanks to his guidance, I can focus on making music because I know the legal and the business aspects of my career will always be taken care of.

I’ve known Dave Rodman of The Rodman Law Group ever since we started working together at Merrill Lynch over 10 years ago. We’ve since both departed that world, myself into the acting field and Dave into law. Almost from the first day of my career as an actor, The Rodman Law Group has been my trusted source of legal counsel for all my endeavors… whether reviewing a film contract to ensure my interests are protected or counseling me on the terms of a management agreement, Dave has always been a tremendous asset to have on my side. He is also a wealth of information and guidance whenever I have questions about the current cryptocurrency markets. Dave has been a lifelong friend that I can count on not only for friendship but also for any legal advice I need, any time, day or night. He even helped me record a self-tape audition when I was traveling in Colorado and in a pinch! He’s a great guy and a hardworking diligent attorney.
