Where the Practice of Law Supports
the Practice of Innovation
Intellectual Property and Registered Patent Attorney
Years of experience, Young at heart
You put your heart and soul into your work. I put mine into protecting it.
I am committed to two things: uncompromising work and client service.
As an attorney, an engineer, and even as an inventor, I recognize the talent, the dedication, and the determination it takes to create new ideas and products. I also understand how critical it is to protect them.
I represent large international companies as well as individual inventors in establishing and enforcing their intellectual property rights around the world. I handle a full range of patent matters including:
- Patent Enforcement
- Patent Infringement, Validity, and Due Diligence Opinions
- Patent Portfolio Counseling
- Patent Preparation and Prosecution
My experience includes complex technology systems and products in a broad range of technologies, including:
- Electrical devices, such as semiconductors, wireless communication devices, RF devices, 3-D holograms
- Mechanical devices, such as test stands, fixtures, braces, and medical devices
- Computer software, such as wireless device control, remote testing programs
Tenacity When It Matters
Before attending law school, I worked as a program manager and principal systems engineer with a major defense contractor. In this position, I was responsible for the design and build of the data link system for the Patriot missile system. As an engineer, I also invented a method that improved the fabrication of printed wiring board substrates used with leadless chip carriers. This method allowed existing fabrication and lay-up techniques to be used while still incorporating the headless chip carriers. It’s also worth mentioning that I was the first female engineer hired at that facility, so to say that I am tenacious is putting it mildly.
After law school, I was in-house counsel for Qualcomm, an international digital communications company. While at Qualcomm I prepared and prosecuted patent applications worldwide for broadcast delivery over wireless platforms and evaluated new ideas for further development.
