As a Players Association certified contract advisor, Jerrold Colton has been successfully representing professional athletes as both an agent and lawyer for over 20 years. Colton’s expertise in contract negotiations, training and draft preparation, as well as career counseling has distinguished him in the industry.

Received numerous awards and recognition for his performance as a sports agent and attorney from multiple publications and organizations. He can be frequently seen and heard as a sports/legal expert on Comcast SportsNet, WIP Sports Radio, and other various networks.

We work closely with some of the best trainers and training facilities throughout the country. Each client is treated with unparalleled personalization and is given every resource possible to enable success in their athletic career. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Positional Training
  • Interview Preparation
  • Wonderlic Preparation
  • Film Study
  • Nutritional Consultations
  • Media Skills Development

We utilize a team of financial experts from some of the nation’s most prestigious financial service companies to advise players on making well thought-out financial decisions during and after their playing careers. The team consists of financial managers, tax and estate attorneys, as well as accountants.

When it comes to taxes, we make sure our account affiliates prepare and file all federal and state income tax returns, as well as other tax documents on behalf of our client. Additionally, we have designed the most effective tax strategies for dealing with large signing bonuses and multiyear player contracts.

At the beginning of a player’s career, we provide a detailed budget so players can properly manage their assets.

This leads us to provide advice on building sound financial investment portfolios based on the type of investment and spending practices selected by the client.

Since a player’s career can end at any time, we assure that our clients focus their concentration on the field while their personal financial worth continues to grow off it, and we are committed to establishing complete financial security for each client.

We believe that increasing a player’s status in the community increases overall earning potential. We work with clients to find deals in local, regional, national, and international markets in order to increase their overall public visibility and income.

A personalized strategy is required to maximize a player’s brand. A brand image is based on the athlete’s values, on-field performance, and off-field conduct. With this combination, a platform is created in which to communicate with the public, and to receive recognition and monetary value through endorsements.
