pvi kelli says:
“i think the arts has a tendency to ‘do first’ and ask later, but if you know how to navigate the legal landscape, you are more empowered to challenge and question it.
lawyers who not only understand the arts but are fundamentally committed to its positive impact on society are a rare breed. mike is one of these people and we are lucky to have him.”
