About Me

I am a patent attorney and a legal research instructor at Thurgood Marshall School of Law. I have been licensed to practice before the State Bar of Texas since November 2007 and before the United States Patent and Trademark Office since May 2008. I also do transactional work for small businesses, and some real estate work.
