Meticulous And Experienced Lawyer Who Will Advocate For You


It takes extensive knowledge to practice law correctly. Even before I was an attorney, I was a registered patent agent with the USPTO, drawing on the knowledge I gained while acquiring my MBA from East Tennessee State University in 2002. The next chapter of my career began after I received my law degree from the University of Virginia. Given my familiarity with and background in patents and intellectual property, my practice areas of intellectual property protection and business law were natural avenues to pursue. My MBA allows me to cite real-world examples and focus on the big picture when I advise clients on business organization and change matters.
