As managing partner of Foundation Patents, I’m a USPTO-registered patent attorney who helps creative people realize their dreams.  My first love is working with inventors to craft their innovations into effective patents.  I focus on comprehensive specifications, illustrative figures and broad claims that capture the genius (“the inventive step”) of an invention while covering all conceivable embodiments.  I enjoy the delicate art of claim-drafting, and I make a point of always being available to help ease the process from idea to issued patent.  I take special pride in my ability to work with USPTO Examiners to secure the broadest patent protection available for each invention I file, and I especially enjoy the follow-up process of enforcing my clients’ i.p. via licensing-for-royalties agreements and assignment agreements.

I received my Bachelor’s at Princeton University and completed my physics course work at San Francisco State University.  I received my J.D. with Honors from the University of Oregon School of Law.  At Oregon, I received a Certificate in Intellectual Property for my course work in patent infringement.

In patent prosecution, I focus on mechanical apparatus devices, chemical compositions and computer-implemented method patents.  I represent businesses in federal patent litigation matters, as well as trademark and trade secret infringement matters.  I perform U.S. and international trademark registrations, conduct trademark searches and filings and draft patentability and “freedom-to-operate” opinions.  I draft and prosecute U.S. and international (PCT) patent applications for scientists, inventors, business people, artists and designers of all types.
