This Attorney List is not paid advertisement, cialis usa stuff nor are any of the attorneys listed here affiliated in any formal manner with USAaudio Multimedia Productions or USAudio.com.  The attorneys listed here are posted as a free service to our visitors.

Here you will find two types of listings.  The first category are attorneys in which USAudio can personally recommend as being among the best in the industry.  These “Preferred or Recommended” attorney listings are identified with a gold star.  The attorneys without stars are of course of no lesser qualifications or any less prominent in their specialty practice or ability to provide outstanding service.  If they were; they would not be listed.  These particular attorneys are listed without stars only for the simple fact that USAudio nor anyone on our staff has in the past had an opportunity to be serviced by or formally dealt directly with the attorney; we do however consider then to be valuable industry legal resources worthy of being promoted here.  As an example, our first listing, Entertainment Attorney Diana LaPolt, Esq. of LaPoly Law, P.C. is not only considered outstanding in her particular discipline; she is also author and contributor of Matthew Bender Entertainment Industry Contracts; Negotiating and  Drafting Guides, Volumes 8 and 9 (the “Music Law Volumes”) as well as a highly respected contributor to a number of Nationally Recognized Industry Trade Organization On-line Legal Resources e.g.: her recent (December 12th) on-line contribution to ACSAP Lesson: Building Your Brand and Career.
