Robert D. Siano, Esq. has practiced law for over thirteen years and is an experienced attorney that handles matters involving entertainment, including intellectual property, contracts, and licensing.

Hi, my name is Robert Siano. And I am a former musician turned attorney. Here to speak about perseverance. In particular, to myself, and my personal struggle, to where I am, and where I wanna go. When I was younger I was in a rock band, and I did everything and anything I could, to make it big, which meant getting signed to a label. It didn't happen. And it killed me. It killed me the day I realized that the band was not going to make it, and I had to choose a different path. Luckily for me I got into law school, and I had to adjust to being an attorney, wearin' a suit, goin' to work five days a week, rather than playin' a show in your underwear and gettin' paid for it. A difficult adjustment. And I had to change my career goals, where now I wanted to become a successful attorney. But I didn't know what I wanted to do. Intellectual property entertainment law seemed the logical step, because I love music. And I'm happy that I've persevered and built the clientele of musicians, that I get to watch and see them grow, and hopefully I watch one of them blow up as big as I wanted to be. Give me some sort of satisfaction to see, that maybe I was a part of something, in the entertainment world. That's what I mean by perseverance.
