    Given her background in the entertainment business, Laverne is exceptionally proficient in her field, with the uncanny ability to foresee and traverse the inevitable pitfalls and land mines associated with rights clearances and contract negotiations in regard to documentary film making. She is an indelible asset to any production.

    When I received a "Cease and Desist" email accusing me of copyright/trademark infringement re: the name of my blog, I simply panicked. In an endless lawyer directory listing with thousands on lawyers.com- I found Laverne Berry. Laverne's rating details are the best proof that she is an outstanding attorney. Don't take my word for it. High marks from fellow attorneys and her working clients sold me. You will be in great hands with Laverne.

    Laverne Berry's greatest strength is that she understands the artist. She has worked in their company for many years and offers the right amount of advice, encouragement and caution regarding artistic decisions and their long term impact on a project. Laverne has a vast knowledge of rights and clearance issues in film and television - something crucial to any project - and she is tough in negotiation. A producer or director of film or television will want Laverne on his or her side.
