About Me




 A seasoned attorney, litigator, and consultant. I am an expert in software licensing, product monetization, and open source software issues. I help companies, both large and small, protect and license their intellectual property. 

I've held several different positions in my career: prosecutor, software engineer, staff attorney and general counsel. 

I have helped start up companies stay out of trouble with the SEC, won jury trials, and reported a security breach in bar exam software to the State Bar of California. My passions are to help bring excellent products to market, zealous advocacy, and quality teamwork. 

If you would like to talk, please email me at or call my Google voice number at (760) 410-8356.

Attorney Endorsements

6 total 

  • Nadine Marie Jett

    I endorse this lawyer. This lawyer's contributions to this site are invaluable. I happily endorse this lawyer's work, ability and charity to those asking for advice. Further, I like to endorse good lawyers, because I find the AVVO rating system to be dishonest and corrupt. Frequently, disgruntled litigants on the opposing side (not your clients) will bash a lawyer on this site, pretending to be "your" client. When this situation is brought to the attention of AVVO, Avvo refuses to do anything to investigate and remove the false, slanderous "client" reviews. AVVO is a mean petty internet blog site trying to make money off of lawyers, and does not care if the public receives truthful information.
