About Me

About Me

ABOUT DANNY JIMINIAN, ESQ.

“I know what it feels like to take a risk and launch a new business or turn a great idea into a work of art because I’ve done it too.”

I am an attorney practicing law in the following areas: entertainment, business, contracts, copyrights, trademarks, nonprofits and civil litigation. I chose to focus on those areas because they are the most relevant to business owners, entrepreneurs, investors, filmmakers, musicians, writers, actors, dancers, designers and artists. After working on multiple film and TV projects and shooting my own feature film in 10 days, I went to New York Law School to learn how to use my legal knowledge to protect myself and my business from the vultures in the entertainment industry. 

“Risk is a part of the price we pay to make our dreams come true but nobody should have their work, idea, business or investment stolen from them.”

Armed with my knowledge and experience, I then started my practice to help visionaries, risk-takers, creative and entrepreneurs, like you, protect and nurture their talents, business and dreams. Whether it's negotiating and drafting agreements, letters and court documents; forming business entities; registering copyrights and trademarks; fighting for you in court, advising you with effective strategies and plans or any of the other myriad and personalized ways that come up, I am dedicated to your success and the success of your business and projects.

“I want to help you ‘blow up” in your field or industry. The bigger you are in your pond, the more powerful and protected you can be. And this will allow you to take more Measured risks and contribute more of your vision to society.”
