    Ms. Tobi is a seasoned litigator and counselor having a stellar reputation for responsiveness, positive results and clear communication. I have known and worked with Ms. Tobi on a variety of legal matter over the last decade. She is easy to work with, responsive, precise, reasonable and delivers outstanding service. In fact, I have repeatedly sought Ms. Tobi's advice with regard to my personal legal matters outside of my core IP practice. Simply stated, she's great!
