Client Reviews
★★★★★
It can be a challenge to find an attorney who combines a high degree of competence with accessibility and dependability. For The American Ceramic Society, David Chavous has fulfilled that role consistently. The Society finds itself defending against what we believe to be a meritless patent infringement lawsuit. As we were quick to discover, patent litigation can become very intricate quickly and we are fortunate to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced in patent law as David to be our counsel and advisor. He continues to be thorough in his approach to the case, and responsive to our concerns in the process. We look forward to a successful outcome to our case and, based on activity to date, believe we have made a wise choice in selecting David as our defense attorney. Charlie Spahr
