Our ability to represent our clients is limited only by the rules restricting where attorneys can practice. Our core team is made up of four partners licensed in California, Illinois, Texas, Florida and New York. These states comprise some of the primary markets where image theft occurs. However, our firm has a strong network of attorneys in other jurisdictions such as Arizona, Nevada, and most of the eastern seaboard. This allows us to increase our ability to serve our clients' needs wherever their rights are trampled on. We are also admitted to practice in dozens of federal courts throughout the country and routinely file lawsuits in federal courts.
