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.
Dineen has particular experience in litigating trade secrets, breach of contract, tortious interference with contract, conversion, civil theft, unfair and deceptive trade practices, and other business-related causes of action in the Florida state courts. Dineen currently accepts clients in need of representation in business disputes in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, Orange, and other counties in Florida.
Dineen has extensive experience in litigating intellectual property matters in Federal court, including copyright, trademark, trade dress, unfair competition, unfair and deceptive trade practices, trade secrets (UTSA), Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and other business disputes. Dineen is admitted to practice in the Middle District of Florida, Southern District of Florida, and District of Columbia District, in addition to most Federal appellate courts.
Have you been sued in Florida, but already have counsel near you that you know and trust? You will still need local counsel in Florida. Dineen can advise lead counsel on the intricacies of the local rules, as well as the unwritten quirks of practice in Tampa, Orlando, and even Miami. Dineen has a proven track record as local counsel for companies from California to Virginia, and has worked with counsel from Atlanta, Washington, DC, and elsewhere. Whether your case is in the Middle District of Florida, Southern District of Florida, or in a Florida state court, Dineen can guide lead counsel through local procedures so that lead counsel can focus on the bigger picture with confidence.
In the heat of litigation, even the best trial counsel can use some assistance. Dineen is available to help lead counsel on a project-by-project basis, providing research and writing support for motions for summary judgment and other dispositive motions, discovery motions, trial briefs, bench memos, jury instructions, motions for directed verdict, and post-trial briefing. Your appeal prospects are only as good as your record on appeal, and Dineen can help ensure you build the best possible record. Whether working behind the scenes or as co-counsel, Dineen can free you up to focus on presenting your case to the jury.
