About Dale

Learn Dale’s areas of practice.

I am a dedicated intellectual property and business law attorney based in Staunton, Virginia, serving the greater Charlottesville area. I am licensed by the state bar associations of Virginia and Massachusetts, as well as the United States Supreme Court, the federal U.S. District Courts of the Eastern District of Virginia and the Western District of Virginia. I am also registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (the "USPTO"). I possess sufficient legal, scientific and technical knowledge to practice effectively before the USPTO. Indeed, I was a member of the legal team that attained the largest patent false marking award in history.

Meticulous And Experienced Lawyer Who Will Advocate For You

It takes extensive knowledge to practice law correctly. Even before I was an attorney, I was a registered patent agent with the USPTO, drawing on the knowledge I gained while acquiring my MBA from East Tennessee State University in 2002. The next chapter of my career began after I received my law degree from the University of Virginia. Given my familiarity with and background in patents and intellectual property, my practice areas of intellectual property protection and business law were natural avenues to pursue. My MBA allows me to cite real-world examples and focus on the big picture when I advise clients on business organization and change matters.

Incredibly Capable & Highly Recommended
Dale is not only an excellent attorney, but a top-notch human being as well. His moral compass is exactly what you'd hope for in someone whom you choose as your legal representative. He's extremely effective in the courtroom and privately in preparation, he's just as great. His arguments are always thorough but with a clear, linear path to their destinations. He would be my first choice for every legal matter within his purview.

| Consulted Attorney
Mr Jensen was very helpful suggesting how to proceed with a contract dispute. He read my email carefully and gave me his opinion and explained a number of points. He also responded promptly, especially considering it was a consult. If need be, I won't hesitate to ask him to represent me.

Wonderful Patent Attorney!
Dale has gone out of his way to help my small start up company protect our ideas. He has been wonderful in taking the time to explain the process and also showed a lot of tenacity in regards to getting our patents through. He also represented our interests well at every turn including defense of a patent.

Excellent legal work
I was extremely pleased with the work of Mr. Jensen on some recent legal work. He was very professional and proficient with his review of my legal matters. His expertise resulted in several important points being brought to my attention. This was extremely helpful. I would recommend Mr. Jenson highly to anyone who is in need of legal services. He did a great job for me and I was very satisfied with his legal services.

Dale Jensen excellent for patent application
Dale filed a patent application for me. He's very smart and very knowledgeable. I have a Ph.D. in physics and he pointed out something about my invention and explanation of its workings that had not occurred to me. So that was a bit embarrassing, but very helpful. A patent application usually requires several back-and-forth negotiations with the patent office (called "prosecuting the patent") after the initial application. Dale did all of that, was very patient with both me and the patent office, and ultimately I received my patent. I was very pleased with his work and I continue to work with him when I have questions about patents or copyright law.

The man with a plan
Dale handled my case well, and it was quite confusing with lots of players and outrageous lies, etc. He compiled the information, gave clear and concise opening and closing statements, and won the case.

Dale Jensen Recommendation
Dale Jensen has helped my firm with business contracts, employment agreements, confidentiality agreements and teaming agreements for several years. Mr. Jensen responds to my requests in a timely fashion and resolves any questions I have effectively. In addition to assisting with agreements and contracts he has provided valuable advice on business structure changes, registrations and certifications. I highly recommend him based on his government contracting expertise and experience.

Represented me in frivilious suit brought by a sociopathic fraud.
Mr Jensen's representation of me and others was nothing less than brilliant. He displayed an enormous capacity to master the details of a very complicated and tedious suit and our subsequent countercharges. All the allegations against us were proven unfounded and our counterclaims were upheld by a jury. The plantiff was found guilty of securities fraud and a Ponzi scheme was stopped. He worked tirelessly on our collective behalf. We could not have had better representation.

A great IP resource for small businesses
Dale has assisted us with trademark, patent and other intellectual property law issues in the field of medical devices for the last two years. He has been professional, cost-effective and diligent. I would recommend Dale as a useful resource for small companies or independent inventors that would like to take steps to protect their intellectual property.
