Copyright Subpoenas, Summons, & Lawsuits

If you have received a subpoena from your internet service provider, and you searched for information about your case and found me, then you or someone you know are likely a defendant in a file-sharing, copyright lawsuit based on downloads that were allegedly done with your internet connection.

You need to act now. Please keep reading.

The Plaintiff is usually looking to settle the case instead of further action in court. I can help you decide how to proceed and represent you along the way. I usually counsel my clients to either settle their case or fight their case, not both. I work hard to save you as much money as possible – my fees almost always pay for themselves several times over.

I charge flat fees to negotiate a settlement and process your settlement payment. Usually, I can keep you anonymous, as well. If you instead decide that you’d like to fight the case, I can help you there, too. Where prudent, I can conduct a forensic-level investigation to aide in the both legal defense and cost control.

I handle your case, personally.

If you have special circumstances, I will work with you to represent your circumstances to the Plaintiff. It is often a delicate matter how much should be said and when.

If you have received a court summons (also know as a “notice of service” or “notice to defend”), then the pre-trial process has already begun. It is imperative that you contact me now. Failing to respond to the lawsuit can be the worst course of action.

I have represented over 400 defendants in these kinds of lawsuits, including litigating against Malibu Media (the largest copyright Plaintiff) in their first trial, ever. I’m familiar with the Plaintiff’s attorneys and can help you achieve the best outcome possible.

I am happy to discuss your case in detail with you via email or phone. Please don’t hesitate to call me at (888) 801-8681 or write me at

    If you are in need of a Lawyer, do not hesitate to hire Mr. French. Kind, Compassionate and Knowledgeable. Before we ever hired him, he spent nearly an hour explaining, in detail, EVERYTHING. He encouraged questions and wanted to make sure we completely understand what needed to be done, what was going to happen and, what could happen. We can never thank him enough for what he did for us!

    The Ultimate Lawyer...

    I have received the best services from Mr. Leonard. He handled and solved my problem perfectly during a short time. I definitely recommend him.


    Leonard was very professional in helping me with my case. In first talking to him on the phone he was polite and explained to me past cases and legal precedent to help me understand the situation I was in and what the outcome would likely be. Further communications were done by email, which made things easy for my schedule. He always responded to my inquiries in a timely manner and kept me informed of what was going on and how things would proceed at each step. He dealt with the case swiftly and and very much to my satisfaction. Highly recommended.

    Informed, responsive, and approachable.

    Mr. French has been representing my wife and me for nearly 2 years now with child custody case involving our granddaughter. There are three areas of his practice that impress us and would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Knowledge: His knowledge of the law involving family and children law is unsurpassed in our opinion. He listens and when the need arises to enter the courthouse he comes fully prepared to do so.
    Compassion & Understanding: When it comes to dealing with children he makes them feel at ease. He has a soothing voice that makes the children open up to him and by our experience it helps him put in to perspective the child’s best interest.
    Dedication: He gives everything to his clients to make sure that are represented to best of his ability. He goes above and beyond any of our expectations we ever had. He makes us feel like we are his only client.

    The time we have known Mr. French it has been a pleasure to get to know him and to work with him.

    One of the most well rounded lawyers we have met.

    It was an awesome decision to ask for help regarding copyright defense from Leonard J French. His insight and advice helped me through the situation with no bumps in the road. His services are very fairly priced, and his initial, free phone consultation was much longer than I expected, which really helped me understand the situation at hand before we even began to talk money. I would highly recommend Mr. French for any legal matters his firm covers.

    Exceptional Services

    Being as Mr. French was my first personal experience with a lawyer, he proved to be the opposite of what common opinions would lead me to believe. He was very professional with all of our conversations and meetings, while showing true concern for using the least amount of my time. He was also sensitive to my situation and advised me in a fair and impartial manner. His knowledge of the laws and court procedures allowed him to break down every step of my case in order to explain it to me, since I was unaccustomed to any of it. If myself or any of my friends and family are in need of legal aid in Mr. French's field of expertise, I will be recommending him strongly. Thank you for your service, Leonard!

    Professional, honest, and courteous. Very pleasant to work with.

    I had consulted a few attorneys in regard to issues with contracts within my IT / AV production company. Mr. French had knowledge in the field and had a fresh perspective to all my questions. It is difficult to find someone versed in the law and internet technology. I was pleasantly surprised to discover no explanation of technology wording in my contracts was needed. He noticed several issues not discussed by my previous attorney. I would recommend him.

    Expert and informed

    Leonard is one of the most personable and honest lawyer's I know. He's extremely fair honest and totally upfront. He does not waste time and gets the job done efficiently and knowledgeably. Through the whole process I can never say anything negative about him, any lawyers that I've ever had always seem to have a questionable side to them. I always felt comfortable dealing with...

    Fair, Efficient, Positive and Hardworking
