After recently observing Paul Levine at a conference, I feel I have some valuable feedback for my fellow writers.

I didn't speak to him, just observed him at a weekend conference. He strikes me as a tremendous contact for a certain sort of person. That said, not everybody is that person. If you are looking for an agent to discover you from the slush pile, he is not that person IMHO.

If you are an already established person who regularly sells creative projects in or around Hollywood, you might do well to hire him as an attorney. He struck me as sort of a legit version of Saul Goodman, from Breaking Bad. I didn't find him personally approachable, much in the same way that other established attorneys I've known aren't. He struck me as a credible adult overall, not a softie.
