About Me

I have followed a unique career path, giving me a keen understanding of the true value of intellectual property.  Initially a chemist, with 30 years in the industry and numerous patents, I pursued licensing these patents to companies around the world.  To facilitate the licensing strategy, I attended Marquette's Law School, receiving my JD in 2009.

  • Michael Charles Doland

    I just reviewed a particularly good answer of Mr. Scarbrough. It was accurate, analytic, and importantly, it was customized to the needs of the Avvo asker. These are exactly the qualities that every client would look for when hiring an attorney.
