WE KEEP YOU ON THE RIGHT PATH
Stepping Outside the Box OUR 15 MINUTES OF FAME IN A MANOR OF SPEAKING
Every now and then, it’s fun to step outside of your comfort zone and experience something new! A longtime client and friend, Christopher Corulla, owner of Suitcase Film Productions, gave our office the opportunity to be part of a fun and interesting project, and I’m excited for him to share with you his current work in progress! With roughly 25 years of experience in the film industry, Christopher is a talented and dedicated producer, filmmaker, and actor, and he’s an absolute pleasure to work with.
I’ve known John R. Merlino Jr., Esq. for several years now, as he has helped me successfully navigate through some real estate transactions and deals and most recently assisting me with restructuring the ownership of my home — seamlessly, of course. Because John is my go-to for many legal areas, his name was at the top of my mind when it came to choosing cast members for Suitcase Film Productions’ newest film: “City on the Edge.” The movie features a joint investigation with NYPD and the FBI in pursuit of a drug dealer suspected of having a hand in the death of New York’s mayor. The only problem is that they can’t prove it — the guy seems squeaky clean on paper. So, together, the FBI and NYPD are watching his every move, just waiting for him to slip up, to attempt to gather enough evidence to bring him in. John actually plays a lawyer for the FBI, and although it’s a different line of work in the legal field than he’s used to in his actual profession, as a real estate attorney and professional, he did some research, showed up extremely prepared, and is absolutely killing it. He’s playing the role like it’s his actual job, and it’s so fun to see him come to life on screen. You’d never know that
he’s not an FBI attorney in real life. Stephanie, a paralegal at Merlino & Gonzalez, is also playing a fun role and is nailing it as well!
“City on the Edge” is set to debut in January, so be on the lookout for it! I’m extremely proud of the film and excited for its release — especially with John’s exciting role. For anyone in need of a real estate attorney, real estate transactional assistance or advice, or estate planning expertise, John and his partner, Ken, at Merlino & Gonzalez are my first and greatest recommendation. Anytime I have ever needed help, John has been there to lend a hand and share his knowledge. They do their job, and they do it well! They know exactly how to tackle any situation, both in real life or when just playing an attorney on film! -Christopher Corulla
