In my 32 years since Federal Registration as a patent attorney,  I have worked for a small Charlotte firm, a medium-sized Kentucky firm and a large Virginia-and-beyond firm. I bring you a solid foundation of patent drafting, prosecution and analysis expertise with the economies and personal attention of a solo practitioner.
