It was surprising to me that you had so much trouble finding a lawyer. Could it have something to do with the financial structure of your proposition? Payment depending on results, for example? Or were you asking them to do something out of their usual scope of work? I ask because the few times i needed an entertainment lawyer, it was easy to find one and those I talked to seemed quite eager for the work. They're expensive---I remember $400/hour, and that was years ago!---but there were plenty of them around. I think my agent gave me a list, and I talked to several.

Anyway, you found a good one, it sounds like. Hope it all works out.
