Her legal career began at Wyman, Bautzer, Rothman, Kuchel & Sibert, a firm that represented MGM/UA among other mega-clients. The breakthrough Taylor Hackford film, La Bamba, was a prediction of Levin's future axis of music and cinema. Other films offered further experience in the intricacies of licensing music for studio pictures.

La Bamba director, Taylor Hackford, became a principal executive at New Visions Pictures where Ms. Levin was appointed Vice President of Business Affairs. In this position Levin handled agreements related to music acquisition, rights and copyright and negotiated and drafted agreements for motion pictures and television.
