A Patent Lawyer with Relevant Experience
Intellectual property law firms like to tout their ability to understand your technology or “get up to speed.” As a former software engineer with over 5 years experience building defense systems, I’m already “up to speed.” I understand how software and web-based businesses develop intellectual property and operate their business. My approach is informed by an overall understanding of how technology is developed and how patent and trademark laws can best be used to achieve a competitive advantage in the market. Go ahead and speak “geek” to me.
You’ll often hear patent law firms say they “know their way around” the U.S. Patent Office. My office was the Patent Office. As a former U.S. Patent Examiner that examined hundreds of patent applications, I graduated from U.S. Patent Academy and worked in opposition to patent attorneys just like me. Now that I’m on the other side, I have a unique insight into the workings of the Patent Office, which helps when I prosecute my clients’ patent applications. And yes, I “know my way around” the U.S. Patent Office rather well.
In 2007, I was in the first group of Florida Bar lawyers to be afforded Board Certified status in the area of Intellectual Property Law. Board certification is the highest level of recognition offered by the Florida Bar in certain areas of law. As a Board Certified Specialist, I’m uniquely suited to provide you with counseling on patent law, trademark law and copyright law. I’m also currently a member of the Florida Bar Intellectual Property Certification Committee, which is the body charged with vetting applicants for board certification, as well as preparing the exam taken by the applicants.
