Summary

I am a partner at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig PLLC. My practice focuses primarily on civil litigation in the areas of patent, trademark, copyright, internet / domain names, commercial transactions, government contracts, community associations, and bankruptcy law / creditor's rights, as well as trademark and copyright prosecution. I have represented local and national clients in federal and state court litigation matters, as well as in bankruptcy proceedings. I have represented manufacturing companies in complex patent infringement matters, technology companies in trademark infringement matters, and copyright holders in infringement actions against the likes of Disney and ABC. In 2012, I made new law in Virginia by successfully arguing to the Virginia Supreme Court that a prevailing homeowner is entitled to recover attorneys' fees in a claim against a Homeowners Association that has violated the provisions of its own governing documents. I attended law school at The George Washington University Law School where I graduated in the top third of my class. At GW, I served as a student teacher of legal research and writing and an articles editor for the American Intellectual Property Law Association Quarterly Journal, and I currently work as an adjunct professor of scholarly writing working with law students on the AIPLA Quarterly Journal. I previously worked for a D.C. firm that specializes in litigation and legislative policy work in the areas of copyright and constitutional law.
