About Me

My practice is primarily in Civil Litigation where I represent clients on both the plaintiff and defense side in business disputes, contract disputes, and intellectual property matters including misappropriation of trade secrets, as well as copyright and patent infringement. I have the luxury of working for a firm that can provide virtually all aspects of an individual or businesses legal needs.
