About Me

I run a full service IP law practice. Of course. Someone has said that to a business, making money is like breathing - it is vital, absolutely vital, but you don't want to be thinking about it all the time! The legal service I provide is like that. It is there; it is vital. And there is more to life.

My clients are my friends. I want the best for them, in their whole life. My advice, services and strategies address whole people with real lives, running vital, planet-changing businesses. I invite you to call me; relax and share some of the things that matter to you. If we generate a question, or an opportunity for a conversation, I look forward to talking to you. Soon!

    Patrick is my go-to guy when I have a patent question or need to refer a client who is in search of a patent attorney. He is always willing to answer my questions and has been a joy to work with!

  • Paul Stephen Drayna

    Working as the only lawyer in a medium size business is a lot like being the family doctor: everyone comes to you with everything, and they expect you to handle it all. Every once in a while, however, you need to refer to a specialist. Intellectual property is one of those areas where I on occasion need help - and Pat has been our source for trademark and IP assistance for many years. He provides good, practical and cost-effective advice, and understands how business clients think. He is consistently a pleasure to work with.
