I remember Jeff as one of my students in Nusery School. I was an aide and he was in my class. He was funny then.

“Goonies” was our son’s favorite movie and now it’s the favorite of his three daughters.  He’s a prosecutor and says the movie has a powerful message about perseverance and about good v. evil.
Besides that, it’s just plain fun to watch.  It’s nice to see at least one child star went on to be a success.
Way to go Chunk!

Your honor - may I approach the bench?
Yes counsel, but first you have to do the truffle shuffle ; )

I’d hire him, but only after he did the truffle shuffle.

After 16 years of transactional work, the entertainment industry sure seems exciting to me.

#5 - That’s what I was going to say about being a DA!

And this is news because?

Where is Ellen Barshevskey when we need her?

Sadly, still banned.  I miss Pushki too.

I would have to say I have a few colleagues who might be fairly said to have an “entertainment law practice,” but I think what they have going is not what this guy means by that terminology.

This is so clearly not an advertisement.

I wonder if he’s ever asked by a client to do the Truffle Shuffle?
