At Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, we make it our mission to serve as the wisest counselors and most zealous advocates for our clients by offering superior legal services, ensuring that every client has complete confidence in our expertise, and trust in our team.


Our vision is to be the elite, international law firm serving every legal need of both national and global clients.

Competent and skilled lawyers are expensive by any measure.  The aphorism, “you get what you pay for” still applies.  However, the law has evolved the wrong way in many respects.  Many law firms have a bloated hierarchy, massive lobbies, and overpriced, yet outdated work processes.  Clients desire experienced and powerfully competent lawyers and are willing to pay for that skill, but they do not want to pay for the inefficiencies inherent in many law firms. DBL isn’t just lawyers. We are veterans, business owners, patent-holders, aerospace engineers, and MBAs.

We have been there and done that.
Let us help you go there and do that.


Our firm does not carry the personal baggage of others. In some practices, younger partners and associates must support a tier of lawyers that may bill on a case, but have little direct working insight, or lend little in the way of constructive value. Our law firm was founded by US Army veterans who apply an “in the trenches” flat hierarchy approach to the practice of law. Our firm contains no “dead-weight” attorneys as a result. Our clients pay for lawyers that produce real work product, and we leverage this flat hierarchy into more work product per hour across total hours billed.


We leverage our experienced practice groups in a collaborative economically efficient manner.  The litigation team can rely on a robust patent prosecution team, trademark filing team, employment lawyers, real estate attorneys, and corporate attorneys who handle complex contracts and mergers and acquisitions. Likewise, our business lawyer teams seek advice and input from our litigators in creating ironclad contracts, teaming agreements, or in handling acquisitions and sales of businesses. Leaving no stone unturned, no idea unexplored. Our highly capable attorneys have decades of experience representing individuals and businesses on a broad array of matters. We have a well-earned reputation for integrity, honor, and diligence. By understanding our clients’ unique business objectives, we help them explore all options. Although disputes in business are inevitable, we believe there are win-win solutions to every problem. We have won cases that count and managed transactions that succeed.
