“Steven Rinehart is an expert in domain name disputes.”
“I don’t know what we would have done without you.”
“I want to let you know how pleased I am with the legal services that have been rendered from Steven Rinehart. Myself and my business partner worked directly with Steven Rinehart, and I cannot tell you how professional and courteous he is. His attention to detail and understanding of the intricacies of our legal issues were second to none. He took quality time to review our projects, and, as we brought other projects to him, I wondered if the quality of his work would diminish. I am happy to report that it did not, in fact, as we gained a greater rapport with him, my expectations were exceeded! I feel every legal project, be it a lawsuit, infringement case, domain name dispute, etc. all of them were handled with the same care and detailed attention that were given to us in the very first case we brought to him. I can honestly say that I would recommend USPatentLaw.com to anyone, as I have already sent numerous friends and business acquaintances to work with this firm and all have reported back that they had the same experience that I continue to have. We look forward to working with Steven for many years to come.”
