    Bill is a colleague I previously worked with at an IP firm. He is an extremely dedicated attorney that is sincerely looking out for the client's best interests. His knowledge spans many subject areas, making him an all around great attorney. Whether it is technology licensing, trademark protection, or business counseling, Bill is always a great source for the current state of the law. He’s also very entertaining, which makes working with him always enjoyable.
