Music law is complex.  It is critically important to hire a music attorney who really knows music contracts, music copyright laws, and how the music industry works.  A very small percentage of attorneys are knowledgeable enough to competently advise and represent clients on music matters.  

Attorney Charlotte Towne is an experienced, knowledgeable music lawyer.  She received a Bachelor of Music in Music Business and Entertainment Industries degree from the University of Miami and worked in the music industry in Los Angeles prior to opening her law practices.
