So.... I seem to be spending a shit load of money on my legal dept. these days. The best advice I ever received about contracts was never sign a standard contract. There are some wild contracts out there, and if not read properly by a professional, can ruin your small company.

That being said I'm always looking for a great lawyer who has experience in our creative field. I currently pay $325 an hour and I can't say I want to keep spending that amount, considering I'm spending 1/4 of my week now dealing with legal matters. Anybody got some fantastic lawyer that doesn't cost and arm and a leg and knows our biz? I don't think location really matters these days.

I've heard this company praised on "This Week in Startups". http://walkercorporatelaw.com/

They're not specific to motion graphics but they seem to be all about helping out smaller entrepreneurs.
And they are based in LA I think, so they may have more experience with the entertainment industry than I may realize.
