Default Looking for L.A. Entertainment Attorney Recommendations

My partner and I have had options before, but we're about to make our first sale and finally become WGA members. An A-list actor with a studio deal has confirmed he wants to buy and make one of our screenplays. We're looking for an entertainment attorney to negotiate the deal on our behalf for 5%. Anybody have one they recommend?

I would just start a search in google for Entertainment Lawyers and then look at reviews and such.

But CONGRATULATIONS that's a huge deal!!!!!

We don't have any reps now. We have had lawyers and reps in the past. What happened in this situation is, some of the women in my condo complex including me were trying to rescue the stray cats nearby, and I finally said I needed to go in and finish editing somebody's screenplay. One of my neighbors asked if I was a writer or an editor, and I said both. She asked if I had a script that would be right for a certain A-list actor, and I said yes and emailed it to her. Without even reading it first, she emailed it to her co-worker whose job it is to seek out projects for this actor. That woman loved it and had the actor read it and he loved it too. He got busy with other projects and none of us heard from him all through awards season, but the 2 women just had a meeting with him, and my friend tell me he still plans to make our movie. I'm taking her word for all this but still am eager for proof that this is actually happening. : )
