Robert Pafundi, is the founder of Pafundi Law Firm, A Professional Corporation, and a Hollywood entertainment lawyer who has practiced law in California for more than 25 years. He has spent the last 15 years representing children and young adults in Hollywood, both as a lawyer and as the owner of MGA Talent, originally known as Mary Grady Talent Agency, which launched the careers of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (The Olsen Twins) and of countless other celebrity children and young adults who became Star Name actors. Mr. Pafundi has negotiated contracts and represented actors and actresses, talent agents, talent managers, producers, directors and many other industry professionals in contract negotiations with major network TV and major motion picture production companies. He has also acted as lead counsel in an array of entertainment disputes, many involving children in Hollywood. Robert recently Produced and acted as lead Production Counsel on the Award-Winning inspirational documentary film titled The 25,000 Mile Love Story, narrated by Oscar Winner, John Ridley (Best Screenplay Adaptation, 12 Years a Slave), and directed by Emmy nominated, John Davies. Robert is the proud father of Alex and Nick, so he also understands the concerns parents have when it comes to raising children. He is a PADI Certified Scuba Diver, licensed FAA Instrument-Rated Private Pilot, and holds a Shodan degree in the most historic of all Japanese Martial Arts, Ninjutsu. Robert resides in Los Angeles, California.

I am highly motivated to help all people understand both the legal and practical complexities that encompasses the entertainment industry, and how to best navigate the maze called Hollywood by not only educating and informing people of the practical aspects of the industry but also the laws, rules and the ethical and moral guidelines that govern all of us who work in Film, TV and Theatre.

Mission: Mission Statement: My Mission, as the founder of Pafundi Law Firm, a Film Producer, and Author, is to educate and safeguard those who work in every capacity in TV and Film, and to protect and serve those who are currently active and experienced professionals as well as those who are new to the industry, so people are led to a higher level of understanding and commitment. One of my daily passions is to motivate all entertainment professionals to join me by conducting ourselves at the highest moral and ethical level when it comes to all aspects of the entertainment business, whether you are actor or actress, a representative, or involved with production, all with a goal toward making the world of entertainment not only fun, but safe and also profitable for Hollywood Adults, up-and-coming Talent, those on all sides of Production, and of course, the most vulnerable, our Entertainment Children and the Children of Celebrities.

As a young actor or actress, or as a parent of an entertainment child, you likely know that the first 15% of a minor's earnings is deposited into a blocked trust account, also known as a Coogan Trust Account in California or a Child Performer Trust Account in New York. The money in these accounts cannot be accessed for any reason without a court order, that is until the minor reaches 18 years of age.

This means that until that young actor or actress is no longer a minor, the remaining 85% of income is available for use, or sometimes, sadly, misuse by the child actor or actress, the family, or even those around then. I always remind entertainment families about the proper and improper uses of the remaining 85%. Here are some examples of lawful uses versus unlawful uses.

Stay home, for YOUR safety and the safety of others.

We must all embrace the sad reality that many people have suffered, are suffering, and will still suffer. Please do not be one of them. If we are bored right now, just maybe we are among the fortunate. #StayHome

With this awful COVID-19 pandemic, I can imagine many may be in need of legal help. I feel a responsibly to give back and help those who may have been affected by this crisis.

As an Entertainment Attorney, I cannot promise to be an expert in all areas of law, especially those that might be most needed during this hardship; but I would like to give counsel to anyone who may need legal advice, referrals, or to just discuss the starting points for any issue at hand in your life due to the virus. Please send me a Direct Message with a brief explanation of your situation. If I can help you, let’s set up a call.

Please Be Safe!

The 25,000 Mile Love Story is a love story-but not a love story in the traditional sense. It is not just about a man and woman; nor is it just about a husband and wife. There are many people who can write that story. Instead, this is a love story that has lasted a lifetime-a love for the world's roa…
