Staci here. Sam E. Goldberg is back with a new series on entertainment and the law, and he definitely started off on the right foot when he spoke with Josh Berman, the creator of Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva.

Mr. Legal Entertainment is Sam E. Goldberg. He’s worked for the Howard Stern Show, where he appeared on the weekly intern show and spoke about gossip, and Maxim Radio, where he did man-on-the-street interviews and spoke regularly with the hosts of the show. Sam previously launched the S&M radio show (S&M stood for Sam and Michelle), and spoke about pop culture, with celebrity appearances such as Kim Kardashian. When he got kicked off the air on college radio, the show was picked up by Idobi radio, an iTunes radio show. Sam is a recent law school graduate. His full biography is available at Mr. Law School.
