Seattle-based attorney with significant experience in intellectual property, particularly in the biotech industry. In past positions my work has focused on drafting patent applications, contracts, tech licensing agreements, etc.

I currently manage a growing solo practice, representing clients in a variety of areas including intellectual property, business formation, contracts, family law, estate planning, etc.

I have a strong science and engineering background, which has provided me uniquely deft skills in statistical analysis, programming, presentation, and general problem solving. Many years in an accounting office have also left me with superb bookkeeping and small business management abilities.

Specialties:Intellectual property, patents, copyright, trademark, contracts, licensing, business formation.
