What types of cases does your practice handle?
“Our firm focuses primarily on patent drafting and prosecution. We founded the firm seven years ago with the goal of providing quality patent services in a more cost-effective manner.  We’ve accomplished our goal by doing away with the billable hour and charging a fixed-fee for most of our services. This allows us to draft and prosecute patent applications using a team of attorneys having litigation, licensing, patent examining and technical experience.”

Why did you decide to become an intellectual property lawyer?
“Prior to becoming a patent attorney, I worked as an engineer for a large corporation that was actively involved in filing patent applications and in several patent infringement litigations.  While working with the in-house attorney on some of these matters, I discovered that his job was more fun than mine. Thanks to an understanding wife and family, I left my engineering career behind and went to law school.”
