I work with various large and small corporate clients in a diverse range of technology areas including software, electrical, and mechanical technologies. I believe there is no single, rigid approach to serving all clients, neither from a technical standpoint nor from a business perspective. The best IP legal services are customized to meet the needs of each client.
I spent several years as an electrical engineer before joining Hanley, Flight & Zimmerman in 2003. I developed electrical hardware architectures for multimedia platforms of next-generation mobile phones at Motorola, Inc. In that capacity, I worked with several different microprocessor families, digital multimedia codecs, LCD controllers, compression algorithms, and communication protocols. At Palm, Inc. I developed electrical hardware architectures for Palm’s line of premium handheld PDA devices, and I wrote firmware and software for mobile computing.
My current practice involves preparing and prosecuting domestic, international, and foreign patent applications. I also counsel clients on non-infringement and invalidity positions as well as other patent related matters.
