Our mission is to provide high-quality legal services to low-income artists and non-profit arts organizations. Our lawyers take on cases for artists like they would any other client, subject to all of the ethical and other requirements of any attorney-client relationship. We want to help you overcome legal barriers that limit your ability to create, distribute or profit from your creativity. We help artists of all stripes—painters, sculptors, musicians, filmmakers, and writers—with a range of arts-related issues, like securing a federal copyright registration, choosing a legal entity type and forming that entity, and negotiating a contract.
