Attorney Stephen Smith got a nod from legal magazine Los Angeles Daily Journal today in their "20 Under 40" feature for his impact on the interactive gaming industry.

Levine. "His understanding of the industry and the competitive environment helps make the Firm a leader in this evolving area of entertainment law."
