Cassandra Spangler, Esq. is a 2009 magna cum laude graduate of Seton Hall Law and began her own music law practice in 2010.  She is also an Adjunct Professor of Music at New Jersey City University and an Adjunct Professor of Business Law at Parsons School of Design.  Prior to attending law school, Cassandra worked at independent record labels, a booking agency, and in music retail.
