Dreitler True again named by Best Lawyers U.S. News & World Report Tier 1 for trademarks and copyrights. We are flattered, humbled and appreciative that once again our firm has been rated Tier 1.

World Trademark Review 2014 said, "Columbus boutique Dreitler True was founded by "seasoned and smart" trademark specialists Joseph Dreitler and Mary True as an alternative to the "Big Law" offering. Its compact team of tried-and-tested attorneys affords clients - from household names to blossoming new brands - flexibility, cost efficiency and tailored services. Dreitler’s valuable past in-house experience lends him enviable insight into rights holders’ overall objectives and concerns, while True draws on her successful, wide-ranging track record to deliver watertight protection and tenacious enforcement of marks."

I have known and worked with Joe and Mary for almost 20 years now, on a variety of domestic/international cases including trademarks, domain names, UDRPs, copyrights and unfair competition. I find Joe and Mary to be knowledgeable, engaged and client focused. Needless to say, they achieve the results I want. Additionally, they are not beholden to the ‘bill by the hour’ model. They are open to and practice under a number of alternative fee arrangements. I simply could not recommend anyone more than I do the law firm of Dreitler True.

I have worked with Joe many years and have always found his advice and guidance well-reasoned, legally sound and practical. This can be a very technical area of the law for many corporations and Joe's experience has allowed me to arrive at a conclusions that were very satisfactory from a business, legal and cost standpoint. As in-house counsel, to achieve all three of those goals with outside counsel really is hitting the trifecta.
