Jeff Finkelstein's practice is devoted principally to transactional entertainment law, specializing in the representation of writers, producers, actors and other on-camera talent, directors, executives, entrepreneurs, rights holders, creators, IP and production companies across all visual media platforms, with an emphasis in the television, film and digital industries. Jeff began his legal career at the law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, following a pre-law school background in production accounting at Aaron Spelling Productions.
Jeff was born in Montreal and lived there into his mid-teens when he moved to California. He lives with his wife Patti, two children in college, Brandon and Haley, and the one member of the family who reliably greets him each night after work, their chocolate lab, Wonka.
