Testimonials

“In a career that has spanned four decades, Liz Hasse and her associate, Erin [Brinza], are simply the best entertainment attorneys I have ever had.  Absolutely professional, always available, relentless advocates, and particularly thoughtful in their understanding of my needs.  Most importantly, Liz negotiated a spectacular deal for the motion picture option of my novel, and I can’t thank her enough.  I feel privileged to be a client.”

–          John Kaye, Screenwriter, Director, Novelist

 “Liz Hasse and her team have always been extremely responsive. I rely on their insightful and practical advice about legal issues affecting our advertising and communications company.  They have also guided us on trademark questions and processes affecting our interests and those of our clients.  I highly recommend choosing them as legal counsel.”

–          Jonathan Villet, President,  OneWorld Advertising • Digital, San Francisco

 “Liz Hasse is the gold standard of lawyers.  She is always on call, always calls back promptly, is always on top of her game with information, insights, wisdom, resourcefulness, creativity, persistence.  She has become more of a partner in our filmmaking company, having earned the respect and trust of a wide array of personalities and high-level players, including creative talents such as writers and directors, in addition to attorneys representing “the other side.”  She has negotiated complex film financing, distribution, screenwriting, directing, book option and purchase and marketing deals with major writers, studios, investors, publishing houses and directors.  She is tough but personable, a consigliore in the most difficult of circumstances, unafraid to hold my own hands steady and, when necessary, my feet to the fire.  In a word, Liz Hasse is brilliant.”

–          Rudy Langlais, Film Producer

“The Perfect Combination of Expertise and Value – As a small media tech startup with complex intellectual property needs, we couldn’t afford high prices or to cut corners. Creative Industry Law was the perfect solution for my company. Erin Brinza and her team at CI Law provided my company with high quality legal services at a very fair price. I now have the contracts to move forward with confidence and I look forward to a long relationship with CI Law. I couldn’t recommend this firm more. “

–          Aram Fischer, CEO/Founder, CivicScreen, LLC

“I was at my wit’s end when I came to Liz, having never experienced such a challenging dispute.  Liz picked up the reins and became the game changer.  She created peace where there was war — and dialogue where there were only insults and threats.  Liz handled herself and my representation with the utmost grace, calm and logic — always communicating with total integrity and working strategically towards a win-win outcome.  She and her team even worked through Thanksgiving and Christmas to make sure everything was filed on time and communicated with accuracy.  She is one of the most brilliant, gracious people I’ve ever met and I recommend her wholeheartedly.  I only wished I had sought her legal protection and expertise right away as opposed to wasting time and much money with other less experienced and effective representation.”

–          Karin Thayer, Business Owner

“The legal work done here and the staff are both remarkable.   They are extremely helpful and know the law, especially media law and copyright law.   They are also quick when working on our questions and issues.  Lizbeth Hasse is very professional and great to work with, as is her team.”

–          David Frank, Owner and President, Indigo Films

“What a pleasure to work with. Incredibly responsive and thorough, they made every effort to anticipate what I would need and deliver it quickly.  A great experience.”

–          Joe Beshenkovsky, Filmmaker

“Liz Hasse and her team have been our legal counsel for many years.  Besides drafting/reviewing contracts in the area of co-production, filming financing, engagements for actors, writers, directors and producers and other creative members for film productions, Liz has advised us in all legal aspects of film productions.    She is professional, experienced and knowledgeable.   Having her as our legal counsel has assured us the control and confidence we need for dealing with complex legal matters.”

–          Lianne Hu, Producer and Managing Director at Hus Entertainment, Inc. 

“Liz has provided legal services to our company for many years.  She is precise, responsive and knowledgeable.  We have enjoyed working with Liz and her colleagues, and trust her judgment on the legal complexities.  They have solved many delicate and tough legal matters for us.   Ultimately, Liz has given us the peace of mind we need.”

–          Spencer Young, SF Employment/Labor Attorney

 “I first met Lizbeth when she was a panelist at a California Lawyers for the Arts workshop in 2006. She was extraordinarily articulate, knowledgeable and gracious.  Knowing that I can call on Lizbeth gives me great confidence and peace of mind. I endorse her work as an attorney without hesitation.”
