I came to KW Law to join a team that can manage complex IP matters while maintaining a small-firm atmosphere that is both friendly and efficient. I enjoy working at an intelligent, flexible firm with the ability to support technology-driven clients of all sizes.

As a systems engineer and patent attorney, I’m passionate about diving into complicated technologies. Prior to law school, I spent several years working as a network security engineer when the Internet was just emerging. In my 25 year legal career, I have worked with a variety of clients to build patent portfolios in technologies such as data communications, digital video, medical devices, semiconductors, aerospace, and digital cryptography. I have written hundreds and prosecuted thousands of patents, and I have achieved a high success rate in defending them. I’m also well-versed in product clearance, infringement analysis, due diligence, and litigation support.
