• James T. Houfek

    In my former position as General Counsel, I had the pleasure of using Joe and Mary as outside counsel on both Copyright and Trademark issues, as well as some significant litigation matters. At all times, I found them to be available, friendly, professional and above all, extremely knowledgable in these areas. As with all companies, our legal budget for outside counsel was always under scrutiny, but when measured against the larger firms, their rates are significantly less onerous. They were much more willing to discuss and negotiate a fee structure that satisfied our goals, than many of the "big boys" were. In summary, responsiveness, knowledge, value and professionalism. I most highly recommend them."

    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."

    As posted on LinkedIn: I had the opportunity to work with Joe as outside counsel on a variety of IP-related matters in the early years of my career as a digital media attorney. Joe to this day remains one of the most superb attorneys I've worked with during my time as in-house counsel. He has a unique ability to take his extensive expertise and break it down into real world, practical advice that is relevant to your company's risk profile. Not to mention he is an absolute pleasure to work with, always bringing a sense of humor and light to any situation. I simply cannot recommend him enough!"

    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 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."

    As posted on Avvo: Joe Dreitler is highly knowledgeable about trademark law and practice, but equally importantly, he has a keen business sense, having practiced both in-house and at major firms before starting his own firm. I have entrusted Joe with trademark conflicts as well as cases in Ohio. Joe resolved these matters quickly and efficiently, and treated the clients with respect and candor. The clients reported back to me that they were delighted that I had sent them to Joe. I also recommend Joe for difficult trademark registrations and appeals. With his many years in the field, Joe is an enormous resource on the finer points of trademark law."

    As posted on Avvo: I wholeheartedly endorse Joe Dreitler's legal skills and professionalism for several reasons. First, he is extremely knowledgeable about IP and patent law. His litigation skills are top-notch and his professional demeanor ensure his clients top-notch legal representation. Because of Mr. Dreitler's unparalleled ethics and skills, I have interviewed him for countless magazine and newspaper articles not only about IP and trademark law, but also about the nuances of practicing law and other general law-related topics. He is consistently generous with his time and expertise and his impeccable demeanor harken to attorneys of yesteryear who are civil not only to the judiciary, but to opposing counsel and clients, and the barista at the corner shop. He is a credit to the profession whose unparalleled professionalism should be cloned for all attorneys."

    I have worked with Joe and Mary for many years, including my time as General Counsel at U.S. Playing Card Company, Deputy General Counsel at Elizabeth Arden, Inc. and President of Give Back Brands. They have always provided me with practical and cost effective advice, but when it became necessary to sue infringers, they were both aggressive and strategic.  They have been able to achieve extraordinary results without unnecessary activities and related costs.  For example, the TRO and product recall decision that they obtained for us against an infringing Britney Spears fragrance [Elizabeth Arden v. Belcam, 2005 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 40734 (S.D. Ohio 2005)] was excellent and I should point out that the infringers were represented by a very large and prestigious NYC law firm.  This is but one of the many excellent results that they have obtained for me over the last 15 years.  I can unreservedly give them my highest recommendation.
