“I am so grateful to have found Magi! Her experience and knowledge of the wedding industry is priceless and so valuable for what was needed to create a strong and protective contract. She understands all angles and recommended so many new things to add to our contract. I now have the peace of mind that when I send out my contract, I know that it is protective not only for me, but also my client, and leaves no unanswered questions."

"Magi was not only easy to work with, she was quick. I've always hesitated hiring a lawyer because I never found someone I could connect with and would understand my business and all the different aspects of it. Magi was knowledgeable about the open water and heated yoga aspects and clearly did her research on the parts she didn't know as well. The waiver and policies she wrote has made me feel supported in my daily business activities and for that I will be forever grateful. I will never hesitate again to bring in the professionals so that I can feel confident and secure while running my business."

“Magi’s knowledge and involvement in so many different industries will give you the confidence, understanding and guidance you need to properly protect yourself in any situation. Working with Magi truly gave me the clarity and security I needed.”

"Magi is an awe-inspiring lawyer and photographer. With just one call, she answered every single creative law question I had about my painting business, while breaking it down into terms I could understand. She even went further to address some questions I hadn't thought of, and did extensive research to provide examples and links for reference. After our call, I've never felt more secure in the legality of my work, partnerships, copyright, etc. - and I will certainly come to her again for future questions."
Word on the Street
Magi is a lawyer and educator for artists and creative entrepreneurs. Her journey has taken her from photographing professional surfers while swimming in some of the world's most epic waves to receiving a Juris Doctorate from Rutgers Law. Magi founded Magdalena Studios, a boutique photography studio, which quickly grew, alongside her law career, to serve over 80 couples per year. Magi now oversees the wedding photography studio and team of associates, photographs a limited number of luxury and destination weddings per year, and provides legal counsel to creative business owners.
If she's not drafting legal documents or photographing luxurious weddings around the world, you can probably find her eating an acai bowl, chasing her pup, Arti, around the beach, or watching SVU reruns in her stylish, beach bungalow.
