About me

Focus on contracts, primarily technology-related, including software licensing agreements, SaaS, and ancillary documents.


In the past I have worked as an in-house corporate counsel for a Fortune 500 company and have advised several companies on various legal issues.

    Attorney Ross has been a colleague of mine for several years. I have always known him to provide comprehensive advice and guidance to his clients. He has a tremendous amount of expertise and is a true professional. I have referred clients to him on several occasions and will continue to do so. I highly recommend him.

    Tron and I worked together for several months. He did an outstanding job in working with other parties in completing agreements quickly and efficiently. He also worked well with the internal team including the sales force and other attorneys. He is a skilled and experienced contract attorney and I highly recommend him.
