About Me

As a former biomedical research scientist (PhD in Immunology/Virology), I specialize in helping academic, corporate, and small business clients protect their intellectual property by preparing and prosecuting patent and trademark applications. I also perform due diligence and advise on infringement matters.


My mission is to provide high-quality, personal service at "Rocky Mountain" prices. Please contact me for a free consult to explore what intellectual property means for your business.
