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.
