In Hollywood, we meet people all the time that say they can do it all. It gets ridiculous. One day I spoke with this guy on the phone named William August.

He tried telling me that he was an actor, a lawyer, a father, and a martial arts expert. I thought, sure you are, and I’m Superman. Then, when I actually met him, I couldn’t believe it. Here he was, a handsome, charming lawyer, Dad of 3, martial arts expert, and talented actor with major credits.

If there is one person I know who I would describe as a modern day Renaissance Man, it is William August. He is one amazing human being, and I am proud to call him a client.
