also known as Akins Doherty
I am a former scientist turned trial and patent attorney and a named inventor in a U.S. Patent. My scientific research background and legal training shape my approach to problem solving, alternative dispute resolution, and litigation. I love being in the courtroom and trying cases, as this is my calling.
I was a member of my law school's moot court team and represented my law school in national competitions. I was a finalist in the 2009 Ben J. Altheimer moot court tournament. I combine reverse engineering, scientific, and legal pedagogy in developing my problem-solving and trial strategy, which, I believe, predominates over strategies employed by opposing counsel.
While I generally approach resolution of disputes with a calm demeanor, my no-nonsense, fight-till-the end demeanor is typically awakened by opposing parties who are stoic at heart or who are stubbornly litigious. When necessary, it is in me to use every available arsenal provided by the law to legally bludgeon opposing parties to submission.
I am experienced in the following areas:
General civil litigation involving personal injury, intellectual property, insurance bad faith, and products liability;
Searching for prior art and drafting patentability opinions;
Drafting provisional and nonprovisional patent applications involving mechanical devices, chemical compositions, nanotecnology, and business methods;
Filing trademark and copyright applications and prosecuting them to issuance;
Advising small business clients on business formation and intellectual property strategy and protection;
Advising inventors, musicians, entertainers, authors, and poets on how best to protect and maximize their intellectual property portfolio;
Experienced in handling spoliation cases.
