Keeping You In the Marketplace and Out of Court.

I practice Intellectual Property Law. My focus is start-up and science-directed clients as well as a specialty practice in vineyard, brewery and distillery law. I work in concert with my clients to create value.

My practice is national and includes Patent and Intellectual Property litigation in technology-driven fields.

I am a registered patent attorney, but do much more than write patents.  I work with my clients and advise them on how best to match their long-term goals with the realities of the marketplace.  My goal for my clients is to keep them in the marketplace and out of the courts.

Social justice issues matter to me. I devote a significant amount of pro bono time to them.

My interests are books and Southwest indigenous textiles, especially Navajo weavings. I am an avid cyclist and hiker.
