Intellectual Property & Appeals - Tampa, Florida
The Florida Bar has certified Dineen as an expert in both intellectual property law and appellate practice – making Dineen the only lawyer in Florida to be certified in both of these practice areas at the same time.
Do you run a small business? Own a website? Work with vendors and independent contractors as part of your business? Use computers? Then you probably have intellectual property issues and do not even realize it. Put Dineen’s extensive experience in copyright, trademark, trade secret and patent litigation and counseling to work for you, and ensure that you are getting full value out of the intellectual property you work hard to create.
The entry of final judgment may feel like the end of the road for your case, but it is only the beginning if you choose to pursue an appeal. And even if you won before the trial court, you may find yourself dragged into an appeal by the losing party. In either case, Dineen can assist you in navigating the appellate process.
No one wants to be part of a lawsuit, but if you have a legal dispute, it is important to have experienced legal counsel to guide you through the litigation process. Indeed, often getting a lawyer involved earlier in a dispute, before suit is filed, can help avoid an actual lawsuit. Dineen can guide you through pre-suit negotiations, and, if need be, represent you in court or in an alternative dispute resolution proceeding.

Florida Appellate Rules of Procedure and Case Law
I never realized quite the level of controversy over the pronunciation of an important appellate term: certiorari. Check out this fascinating article that analyzes that the ways that various United States Supreme Court Justices pronounce the term [.pdf].
