    • Intellectual Property
    • Business

I am an intellectual property lawyer with a chemical background and an analytical approach to problem solving. I focus my practice on patent prosecution, trademark and copyright law. I help individuals and businesses obtain, protect, monetize, enforce and defend their intellectual property.


I encourage clients to seek my assistance with intellectual property matters before disclosing your intellectual property to a third party so we can work together to best protect your intellectual property in a cost effective manner. My goal is to always protect my clients’ interests and ensure their intellectual property, and therefore their business, is secure.
