CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"It was a pleasure to work with such great & knowledgeable professionals. Will highly recommend you to others."

KIRK ADKINS - OWNER, ADKINS HARDWOOD FLOORING

"I have had the pleasure of working with Quincy for quite some time now, and I am consistently impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, and dedication. His understanding of the entertainment industry is unparalleled - from options, development, packaging, production to distribution. 

 

He is incredibly adept at handling a multitude of legal issues, from contract negotiations to intellectual property rights. What sets him apart is his ability to break down complex legal jargon into terms that are easy to understand. That has been crucial in helping me and my company make informed decisions. 

 

One of the things I appreciate most about Quincy is his unwavering commitment to protecting mine and my company’s interest. Whether it be reviewing contracts, advising on potential legal pitfalls, or fiercely representing our interest, I can always count on him to safeguard my company and projects rights. 

 

In addition to his professional expertise, he is also a joy to work with and a true collaborator. He is approachable, patient, and always ready to answer any questions I may have. His support has brought me and my team peace of mind. 

 

I cannot recommend Quincy highly enough. He is truly an asset to anyone and their team seeking sound entertainment legal advice and representation."
