My practice focuses on trademark law and how businesses and individuals can create and protect their brands. In this capacity, I help clients prepare and prosecute trademarks, enforceme trademarks, and license their marks to maximize value and exposure. I have prepared numerous trademark applications, responded to office actions, and represented clients before the World Intellectual Property Organization. I also have experience assisting clients in the negotiation of contracts and joint venture agreements with other companies to develop technology.
I earned my J.D., cum laude from the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University in 2012. While in law school, I was a member of the Arizona State Law Journal and an oralist and brief writer for the Jessup Moot Court team. As a student attorney with the Innovation Advancement Legal Clinic, I counseled clients on the protection of different forms of intellectual property and drafted sales agreements and confidentiality agreements. During and after law school, I worked with the managing intellectual property counsel for a dynamic corporation assisting in the management of a multi-million dollar trademark portfolio.
In my spare time, I am a rhythm engineer (i.e. drummer) in several bands. I am also an active volunteer at Arizona Animal Welfare League, Arizona's largest no kill animal shelter.
