About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

I focus my legal practice on intellectual property litigation and pre-litigation disputes, intellectual property transactions, and the prosecution of trademark and copyright applications. I regularly counsel clients in a wide range of industries on all aspects of trademark, copyright, trade secret, advertising, and internet law and have represented them in courts throughout the United States and in the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. Before joining RM Warner, PLC, I was a partner at several Phoenix area law firms and was an associate attorney at an Am Law 200 law firm prior to that. Before attending law school, I was a television producer in Los Angeles.

Satisfied Client
While we work with many types of attorney's we had no-one with experience in trademark/intellectual property law. As a busy medical practice we we didn't have time to waste going back and forth with an attorney. We found Michael online, being very nervous to do so and were immediately impressed by his knowledge and his ability to easily explain what is a very difficult part of the law to deal with. He took our case on and went to work immediately. He was responsive, kept us updated, and was at all times very easy to get ahold of. Our situation was time sensitive and had to be dealt with immediately and he very quickly took a hold of the situation and moved it along. We couldn't be happier that we found him and appreciate what a good job he did. His staff is also professional and very pleasant to work with.

Highly Recommended
Michael helped me through an international settlement that was not only distressing but at times, very confusing. Additionally, negotiations were hampered by a language barrier on the part of the other party. Prompt attention to my difficulty was always appreciated & I felt that my issue was a priority. Michael's keen knowledge of international law was evident as he skillfully negotiated then executed a fair & successful settlement. I highly recommend Michael.

Great problem solver and lawyer
I was frivolously sued by a former business acquaintance. After hiring Michael to defend me, results happened fast. Michael put the plaintiff and his lawyer in their place and obtained a complete dismissal for me quickly. I now refer friends and colleagues to Michael quite often. Great lawyer.

Smart Internet Competent IP Lawyer
After a bad experience being sucked dry by a larger firm whose senior partner stopped paying attention to technological trends 20 years ago, Michael was a breath of fresh air. I didn't have to waste time explaining the intricacies of my online business, he just "got it" right away. Michael is also that rare attorney who will give a straight opinion or advice, without overly qualifying every statement. Most importantly, his billing was fair and accurate and I felt like he got things done quickly and reasonably. I wasn't paying him to learn on my dime, since he already knows what he's doing. If you have a copyright or trademark situation, you can't go wrong with Michael.

Top recommendation
Micheal Dvoren assisted us with a trademark infringement case. He refuted the allegation made against us with such compelling legal facts and argument that the matter was settled very quickly. His diligence in working our case so proficiently allowed us, as a small business with a limited budget, the opportunity to afford first class legal representation. Michael is wonderful to work with, is highly professional, knowledgeable and caring. All our directors are extremely happy with the legal services provided by Michael. He gets our top recommendation.

Michael understands IT technology software concepts and engineering which is very hard to find in an attorney
We consulted with Michael Dvoren about a software patent issue and he took the time to meet with us and clearly and accurately explain our options. He was very straightforward in terms of our options and costs/time involved and was extremely friendly and helpful. Michael was very easy to work with. He is personable, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about his area of practice. Michael is also rare in the fact that he also understand IT/technology/software concepts and engineering which is very hard to find in an attorney with his high level of legal knowledge.
