About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Lawyer, author, journalist, blogger and philanthropist, Sean Erenstoft has launched a media company encompassing his efforts to craft a multi-media outlet focused on discussing current political events and social welfare. Erenstoft began his career as a prosecutor working for the Orange and then later, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's offices and later formed his own firm handling white collar crime and civil rights matters throughout California. Following his discovery of a secret Special Directive that the top prosecutor in Los Angeles published to his deputies, Erenstoft was the un-celebrated whistleblower that blew the lid off a systematic effort by the county's prosecutors to hide evidence from defense attorneys handling criminal matters. His efforts to call attention to the wide-spread civil rights violations culminated in a lawsuit filed against the D.A. by the A.C.L.U. Ultimately, the D.A. was drummed out of office and his replacement quickly clarified her deputies' obligation to timely dispatch Brady evidence. Erenstoft would ultimately lobby, Congresswoman, Patty Lopez and seek her assistance in diminishing prosecutorial immunity for such conduct. California now celebrates a new law making it a felony for prosecutors to hide evidence. Erenstoft's second book entitled L.A. Cutthroats is a biographic about Erenstoft's tribulations as he pushed back against repeated efforts to deny his clients Brady evidence; and the retaliation he suffered when he threatened to take the secret special directives public. L.A. Cutthroats has now been optioned and is being adapted for television. Meanwhile, Erenstoft has been quietly accumulating media properties intending to consolidate his vision of providing coverage of local, state and national legal and political matters impacting our citizenry. Erenstoft will continue to focus on policies, procedures and pronouncements that impact our due process and other constitutional rights. Currently, Sean is working on the licensing of media content that will be featured on his website. Erenstoft intends to begin marketing subscriptions to Hard Corp. Media in the Fall of 2017. He is also invested in a number of projects set to begin production later this year. Set a Google alert to: Hard Corp. Media and stay-tuned.

    I am recommending Sean Erenstoft who I have known for more than a year now who has assisted me and my business as an outside consultant during this very transitional time in the digital media industry. Sean's tutelage and guidance demonstrated both his expertise and experience in business and legal affairs. Notably, I was encouraged by his approach to getting me and my staff to understand how basic concepts play themselves out in real-world practice. Sean was introduced to me by a colleague to address what appeared to be the end of this company's profitable existence in this ever-changing industry. At issue was whether we could ethically continue to offer our bread-and-butter services while recognizing the inevitable demise of a format. We were in crisis when Sean helped us to re-brand our offerings to include licensing the technology gains that underlie our mainstay business. His efforts are serving to extend our business-life and provide income until we are able to find a suitable buyer. In doing so, he helped save the jobs of a dozen employees and won my personal gratitude and recommendation to any company in need of crisis management.
