I recently hired Mr. Palmateer in a Federal trademark dispute case in which I was the defendant. First of all, Lee is very personable and an excellent communicator, which I have found to be qualities lacking in some attorneys. He is diligent about returning phone calls and e-mails and is scrupulously honest in his billing practices. He is, in short, a credit to the legal profession.
But don't let Lee's unassuming demeanor fool you, he excels as a litigator. In fact, he is a litigator of uncommon ability and judgment. I have found him to be tenacious in pursuit of his client's best interests, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to someone in need of a seasoned intellectual property attorney. I credit his expertise and hard work for the amicable end to my case.

I had been sitting on my business trademark for years knowing I need to secure an official trademark but clueless on where to start. I was seriously considering using an online legal filling service but very uncomfortable with the unknowns and completely overwhelmed by the process knowing there was much more that had to be considered. A colleague recommended I contact Lee. It was the best move I could have made. I called his office and he got back to me immediately. He listened very carefully and answered all of my questions to complete satisfaction. In all of our conversations I felt like we were communicating as equals. There was no condescension whatsoever. All of the fees were presented in detail and I completely trust his judgement.
He is timely with any follow up issues and clear about deadlines and the consequences in regard to my application for not meeting them. I highly recommend Lee Palmateer and look forward to working with him in the future.
