As a founding member of Hanley, Flight & Zimmerman, I have experience in U.S. and foreign patent prosecution and client counseling with particular emphasis in the electrical and mechanical fields. In addition to patent prosecution, my experience includes directing post-grant proceedings in the USPTO and acquisition negotiations. Additionally, I’ve rendered numerous non-infringement and invalidity opinions as well as testified at trial.
I’ve worked with technologies including, among other things, mobile telephones, networks, semiconductors, remotely-readable meters, industrial equipment, spray nozzles, kitchen fixtures, and firearms.
Before starting a legal career, I worked as a design engineer at Motorola Cordless Products, specializing in RF and audio circuit design. I earned my JD from DePaul University College of Law, with honors. I also earned an MS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from University of Illinois, Chicago, and my BS in Electrical Engineering, magna cum laude, from Marquette University.
