APPROACH

“My practice focuses on intellectual property litigation, as well as preparing and prosecuting patent and trademark applications.   I believe my experience practicing in both the Federal Courts in litigation matters and the USPTO in preparing and prosecuting patents and trademarks provides great value to clients.  I often find that my experience in one helps me obtain successful results for clients in the other, and vice versa.”
