Protect and Preserve Your Unique Talents

We want to see your creative career take off.

But, too often, talented artists relinquish their rights, royalties, and other recurring revenues due to poorly negotiated terms or one-sided contracts. It’s unfair – but that’s why we are here to preserve and protect your unique talents that make you stand out.

We are invested in your long-term success, which means we make your needs our priority. We provide the sound advice and legal protections to support your career – exactly what it needs to thrive. Our attorneys provide unparalleled support in deciphering often complex legal contracts, such as record deals, management agreements, license agreements, and more. At the end of the day, we want to ensure your rights and your work are protected and valued.

“…After one year with Jim, I can honestly say we have zero legal problems from the past or the present.”

“Being in the music business for 25 years, we gave up in our hope of finding an honest and fair attorney. All that has changed now- his name is Jim Kuzmich. He has an uncanny way of explaining complicated legal contracts in plain English; so that the artist is fully aware of their rights. Jim has become an everyday part of our business. As with most artists that have been around for a long time, we came to Jim with plenty of past problems. After one year with Jim, I can honestly say we have zero legal problems from the past or the present. My only complaint is that we didn’t find him 25 years ago.”

“…Jim is different than other attorneys, as he is concerned with my issues and not just focused on the clock.”

“Jim and I have been working together for 10 years. We have traveled on many journeys together. I’ve always had great experiences, good conversations and finely tuned contracts from Jim Kuzmich. Not only is he my attorney, he has become a close friend. I believe it is important to be able to have someone who will stand by you for your beliefs in business and protect you from the ‘wolves of concrete.’ Jim is different than other attorneys, as he is concerned with my issues and not just focused on the clock.”
