About me

Welcome to The Law Offices of Steven C. Vondran, P.C. 

As we like to say, we are not your Daddy's law firm.  We do things differently.  We don't charge for copies and paper clips or staples.  We don't double and triple bill you. We offer honest services, tenacious legal representation and flat rate legal fees in most cases.  Some cases we are also able to take on a contingency fee basis.

The types of cases we take vary, but basically we handle business, real estate, insurance, and intellectual property cases in the following areas:

1.  Software audits / software law: (BSA software audits, SIIA audits, Microsoft, Autodesk, software licensing);

2. Real estate cases: (Broker defense, admissions cases, accusations, subpoena response, commission disputes, Realtor code of ethics violations, financial elder abuse, eminent domain, zoning & land use);

3. Business law, arbitration & litigation: (contracts, breach of contract, interference with business advatange, business torts, software disputes, business torts. business defamation);

4. Copyright & social media: (copyright infringement, bully cases, online defamation, right of publicity, DMCA, UDRP, cybertotrts, privacy invasion, work for hire agreements, copyright assignment agreements);

5. Insurance disputes (denial of life insurance benefits, bad faith, insurance disputes, insurance subrogation, cyberloss).

Whether your legal issue involves an audit, general contracts, corproate advisory, real estate tranasaction, software law, copyright, arbitration, mediation, or litigation in state or federal court, we have substantial experience helping clients both large and small resolve their complex legal issues, minimum their legal exposure, and recover substantial sums of compensatory damages in appropriate cases.

 Top 5 reasons our firm might be a good match for you:

1.  You don’t want a law firm that charges you to make copies, or charges you for staples, postage fees, or paper clips.  This is just silly and we won’t do it.

2. You don’t want a long-winded lawyer that pontificates on and on, never really explaining anything to you, and then sending you a bill for the all the time.  Lawyers must be concise, honest, straight-forward and to the point.  That’s what we do.

3.  You do not want to hire a law firm and then have three lawyers working on your case, each billing time (“triple billing” or “double billing” by a partner and associate).  This wastes your money and is honestly a slap in your face.

4.  You want a firm that solves problems and not creates them.  We fight for you, we are in your corner, and we want to get your legal issues resolved as bad as you do, (hire us so we can handle the problem and let you focus on your work and what you do best.

5.  You have serious legal issues that need to be resolved, in the shortest amount of time possible, and at a fair and honest price.

  • Michael Charles Doland

    One of the many excellent answers of Mr. Vondran particularly caught my attention. It was customized to the needs of the Avvo asker, while bringing a depth of analysis that was of value even to lawyers practicing in the field. These are the qualities that every client should look for when hiring an attorney.
