Like you, I’m an entrepreneur.
I founded my law practice to help small businesses and start-ups protect their most valuable properties--their ideas…and, probably also like a lot of people, so that I didn’t have to work for someone else.
I know what it's like to wonder if the phone will ring tomorrow and whether I’ll be able to cover my business expenses. This experience and understanding gives me an insight into small businesses that many attorneys don't have.
Since most of my practice is federal, I can help people across the country and around the world protect their intellectual property. Most of the time there’s no need to come in for an office visit. Almost all of my client communications are electronic. Of course, if you want to buy me lunch, I’m happy to oblige.
I'm originally from St. Cloud, Minnesota and moved to Hershey, Pennsylvania to study at the Penn State School of Medicine. After earning a Ph.D. in Neuroscience for my project "The Response and Potential Roles of Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 and IGF Binding Protein-2 in Murine Cerebral Ischemia," I went on to receive my law degree from the Temple University, Beasley School of Law.
I’m licensed to practice in Pennsylvania and before the US Patent and Trademark Office.
I live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with my wife and two daughters, a dog, three cats, a few fish, a hermit crab, two guinea pigs, and possibly more pets no one has told me about yet.
