Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
David Lilenfeld, founder of Lilenfeld PC, had a case for a company sued for trademark infringement. The lawsuit attacked my Client’s right to use its name, a name it had been using for more than fifteen years. It is a $50 million dollar business that depends on a high volume of small sales to thousands of different customers. Changing the name of its business would have greatly damaged the good will my Client had generated the last fifteen years, in addition to costing at least a hundred thousands dollars to fund a re-branding. David Lilenfeld walked the Client through the process and fought hard to fend of the attack. Ultimately, through hard-nosed litigation, we convinced the opposing party that my Client would prevail. The opposing party ended up dismissing the lawsuit and my Client was able to keep its name.

How did you build a successful practice?
David Lilenfeld has built a successful practice at Atlanta-based Lilenfeld PC by maintaining two primary goals: (1) win cases for Clients – Clients hire us to win their case and that is where we need to stay focused and (2) win cases efficiently – litigation is expensive and time-consuming. Lilenfeld PC does not waste time or effort, nor let matters drag on longer than they should.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Honesty and integrity. Clients need a lawyer who has made an absolute commitment to giving the client every possible chance to in their case, while doing so efficiently.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Local knowledge is very important to David Lilenfeld’s practice and to having success in client cases. Knowing and being familiar with the judge or judges assigned to a trademark or copyright dispute is a critical element . Knowing the likes, dislikes and biases of judges helps Lilenfeld PC effectively serve clients. Being acquainted with the opposing attorney is also helpful, as a good relationship can ensure the client’s case runs more smoothly, which, in the end, saves the client time and money.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

To get a lawyer with comparable expertise in Atlanta, a potential client is likely going to need to hire a lawyer from a very large law firm, which is considerably more costly than the lawyers at Lilenfeld PC.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
“Nothing is more rewarding than winnings cases for clients,” said Lilenfeld PC founder, David Lilenfeld, “and winning cases efficiently is a huge additional reward.”
