About
  I formed this firm in 1993, after working both in-house and as outside counsel, to companies like Nokia and MCI. I focused at the time on upstarts - new firms, typically web-driven and often in telecom. Litigation, trademark, copyright, contracts, employment and other issues. 
       I have now narrowed this practice slate to trademark and copyright, and include real estate and contracts of all types. These are areas I know both in-depth and across the spectrum. 
       I had spent several years after graduating law school with a small general purpose law firm, where we prided ourselves on being willing to go the extra mile for the client.

"Comptel is the world leader in intermediation telephone software for subscription, switching and billing. We have divisions all over the world, and our Virginia office handles US and Latin America. We focus on our products and our clients, and we rely on educated and responsive professionals for our accounting and legal matters. Comptel has used Mr. Hauptle’s firm for the past seven years, starting with basic steps to set up shop here in Virginia. We needed someone to help us form a subsidiary corporation, manage our trademark, banking, office space and employment matters. These are all baskets of decisions that all businesses need, but we believe are best handled by professionals. One aspect of this relationship that is truly helpful is guidance available at the other end of the phone or email. We get quick and reliable advice on contracts, employee terminations, lease issues and a host of other matters. At times, we need something that the firm does not provide, for instance immigration work for incoming foreign workers. In those instances, Mr. Hauptle has referred us to another firm he was familiar with, and then watched over our shoulder to make sure we got good advice and service. Mr. Hauptle now serves us as corporate secretary and legal advisor. This arrangement relieves us of the administrative duties of a corporate secretary, and every year we get a review of our operations from a legal standpoint. We have definitely benefited from this combination of duties. Overall, we have been very pleased with the service that this firm provides. We value the responsive and experienced assistance. It provides us with a level of confidence that really comes in handy at times."

When I have come across issues, he has provided same day counsel and a quick a turn around with all necessary research and paperwork. His years of experience and skill are evident through the ease with which he handles thorough research, explanations of complicated legal rules and processes, and overall client service. Not only was he able to handle my specific needs in a timely and professional manner,  he was able to secure the desired outcome for my issues. In the future I know who to call.
