“My practice focuses on preparing and prosecuting patent and trademark applications, as well as intellectual property litigation.   I believe my experience both in preparing and prosecuting patents and trademarks and in litigating intellectual property matters 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.”
