You have seen Mark Shaw before, as a fellow Left Coast Writer® and as November’s Book Party at the Ferry Plaza, but not all will know that he is also an accomplished entertainment lawyer. Mark will be sharing his thoughts on “Writers and the Law: Everything You Need to Know that Nobody Told You.”
Located in Burlingame, and a California attorney for 30+ years, Mark Shaw‘s publishing experience as the author of 20+ books sets him apart from other entertainment lawyers.
