Best lawfirm in the DMV!
David's [Ludwig's] best attributes are honesty, frankness, and patience. We had a steep hill to climb via-a-vis my case and he was careful to discuss the pitfalls and risks at the outset. Everything was done in a timely, professional manner and he seemed to have the respect of the opposing attorneys and worked with them to my benefit...
Daniel [Davis] and the team were proactive and very patient throughout the trademark process. This was our first one and it wasn't easy dealing with USPTO, but the firm made the process much less stressful.
We needed Trademark and name protection and the service provided was excellent. We are in a new industry and had already found one company trying to make a play on our name.
I have only had great experiences with Tom Dunlap and his legal team. Tom is an amazing guy in too many respects to list them. Competent, professional and integrity.
Tom is the charismatic helmsman of a very talented team of attorneys at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig. He is attentive, knowledgeable over a broad range of IP issues, and (importantly) able to manage legal costs. A clever tactician with the gift of the gab in the courtroom, Tom is absolutely the sort of attorney that you want on your team for contentious IP matters.
Mr. Bennett was always professional and always available for me during a difficult time. I appreciate his dedication and professionalism. He worked hard and got a great result for me in my case.
Kevin was great to talk to. He made the process of the patent clear and understandable. He offered his services so that we are able to make an informed decision. I would work with him again!
Mr. Bennett is extremely professional and gets the job done. I needed help and he helped me period…he didn’t beat around the bush and kept me very informed on my case and how the law works in detail which helped ease my anxiety. He was compassionate and seemed to really care about helping me with my case and his billing was more than fair.
Tom was responsive to my questions and very easy to talk to. Unlike the first lawyer I worked with he handled the dispute without having to file a lawsuit and without three attorneys on the same case. Great work!
Tom was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He listened to the issue, reviewed the contract in question and left me with the piece of mind of knowing that the contract worked in my favor. He advised me on how to proceed as well as provided additional legal resources. Received great legal advice and would definitely contact him again.
I contacted Mr. Bennett to represent me before the USAF. He was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I was most impressed by his willingness to spend the time needed to properly prepare and to keep me informed about the process. And we were successful defending the action.
Ellis handled our complex contract litigation matter very well. He took the time to clearly explain what the issues were, what the process would be, and what to expect. Our case was resolved successfully and at a very reasonable cost. I would definitely use his services again if needed, and would highly recommend him.
Ellis is very hardworking and responsive. He keeps us informed at every turn and goes above and beyond everything we hoped for. I have complete confidence in his ability and highly recommend him.
David’s [Ludwig] best attributes are honesty, frankness, and patience. We had a steep hill to climb via-a-vis my case and he was careful to discuss the pitfalls and risks at the outset. Everything was done in a timely, professional manner and he seemed to have the respect of the opposing attorneys and worked with them to my benefit. He successfully steered the case over the first major hurtle but we couldn’t make it over the last but it was not his fault. A decent, honest fellow. I recommend him highly.The firm’s reception is pleasant also and always made me comfortable before my meetings with David.
Tom Dunlap is a rare find in the legal profession. He is very knowledgeable, tactful and a very skilled attorney. I know that Tom is in high demand, and I can see why. He made me feel like I was his only client. Dedication, personal attention and an ability to explain the technical issues of law made Tom really shine against other attorney’s I’ve worked with. I cannot recommend Tom Dunlap enough! He truly does great work!
Kevin laid out everything related to our patent questions very clearly and was an excellent help!
Mr. Bennett is beyond reproach. I was being sued in by a very aggressive Law Firm whose customer stated that his intent was not necessarily to win, but to use the legal system to “destroy” me. Mr. Bennett’s solid knowledge in the law and extreme diligence to the complex details of every matter in the case completely abated their goals. When working with Mr. Bennett you get the impression that you are his only client and he always has your case in mind. I HIGHLY recommend this Attorney.
I stated the main purpose of the initial consultation with Tom Dunlap as needing direct advice on applying for a Trademark for my invented product. I needed his expert opinion on whether the “conflicts” of other products with similar names to mine were serious enough to keep mine from being granted a Trademark, also. He dove right in, looked at my search results, asked some pertinent questions and gave me his opinion, and made several suggestions on how to maximize my chances. He was most helpful and knowledgeable.
Too many times have I talked with attorneys who have waffled their way through the conversation, either scared to stick their neck out or not knowledgeable enough on the topic. This was NOT the case with Tom Dunlap. He gave clear, concise, actionable views based on his experience and expertise. Highly recommended.
Tom Dunlap is very professional and wise beyond his years. I have already told 10 business friends about Tom’s services. I hope his firm runs for centuries!
Mr. Ludwig is a consummate professional with a wide breadth of knowledge into copyright law and trademark issues. I have a somewhat complicated case and Mr. Ludwig took a lot of time and care to help me wade through the details to make my options clearer. I absolutely would recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice in these matters. A+++
Very evolved and experienced wisdom given. My philosophy in how to deal with conflict and issues in business was completely inline with David’s. Not the typical ‘lawyer’ stereotype. A real breath of fresh air.
I have consulted Mr. Ludwig on several occasions for the same reason: he has a way of explaining copyright and trademark law that provides the average consumer with the tools necessary to make informed decisions about the matter at hand. I value his advice and will contact him again, if the need arises.
