Solid, dependable, and valuable
Mike's expertise is second to none for domain name, trademark, and patent work. The purchase of our domain name was expertly managed and with a minimum of fuss. His rates are exceptionally reasonable compared to others in this industry, and when coupled with his deep knowledge of the market, makes his services a veritable steal.

Michael Rodenbaugh is a superb attorney
We have had complicated issues with: trademark, IP, TLD and secondary domain names. Mr. Rodenbaugh's advice and handling of each event has been superb. Unnecessary legal action has been avoided and necessary legal action has been very well handled. I highly recommend Mr. Rodenbaugh.

Wicked smart TM attorney.
I've worked with Mr. Rodenbaugh for over 10 years and he has represented my company in both routine TM filings as well as complex litigation. He is very smart, always ethical and capable of managing and litigating complex IP related issues. I recommend him highly.
