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.

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?
