Available Patent Cases

Some cases may be on review with another attorney. As one case can only be on review with one attorney at a time, cases marked as “On Review” are not currently available. However, these cases may return to the list if not accepted by the reviewing attorney, so please indicate your interest so that your name may be added to the queue in the event the case becomes available.

To request a case, please email Laura Levin-Dando, VLA’s Staff Attorney, at probono@vlany.org. Please indicate the case number in the email subject line.
