When I optioned my screenplay to a production company, the terms negotiated were both unusual and a little complicated. Even though both sides were in agreement over the terms, I knew that the devil was in the details and needed a sharp attorney to review and revise the option agreement drawn up by the production company. Whitney Davis-Houston was able to explain the legalese to me and advise and revise the option agreement until it reflected the terms to which the production company and I had agreed. By the time I signed the contact, I knew that my interests were protected. I recommend Whitney Davis-Houston without reservation and am grateful for her help.
