James C. Redondo, JD, BSEE

At HFZ I prepare and prosecute software and electrical-based patent applications. HFZ allows me to be exposed to new technologies and face new challenges.

Prior to joining HFZ, I taught high school mathematics at Noble Street College Prep where I developed the skill of explaining complex mathematical ideas in a clear and concise manner. Because patents may need to be analyzed by judges or juries, I am able to leverage this skillset in my patent practice by describing complex technical ideas at a level that can be understood by those with a limited technical background.

While working as a software engineer with Law Bulletin, I programmed automated testing for software application development, and as an electrical engineering intern with Continental Automotive Group I conducted EMC tests and programmed transmission control units for 4×4 SUVs. Through these industry experiences I developed skills in problem-solving, engineering, and teamwork which I utilize while working with inventors and drafting technically accurate patent applications.

My legal education through Chicago-Kent College of Law sharpened my legal reasoning, writing, and creative thinking skills which I now leverage in developing persuasive arguments that advance effective prosecution and secure Intellectual Property rights for our clients.

Working at HFZ allows me to utilize my teaching, engineering, and legal background to develop strong patent protection that targets the business goals of our clients.
