If you paid close attention to last night’s Oscar ceremony, amid the tears and triumphs, a couple of lawyers got their thanks.
First was Mo’Nique, who thanked her lawyer, with a name-check to the full firm. “Ricky Anderson, our attorney of Anderson & Smith, thank you for your hard work,” she said.
Anderson has been the Managing Partner of Houston-based Anderson & Smith since 1994. Other clients include Steve Harvey, Isaiah Washington, and Judge Greg Mathis.
Jeff Bridges also gave a shout-out to his counsel, Bob Wallerstein (one of our own Power Lawyers behind the Oscar’s). “My wonderful team that’s kept me together: Jean Sievers, David Schiff, Rick Kurtzman, CAA, Bob Wallerstein…thank you guys,” said Bridges.
