I worked with Amy in filing IP in the field of material science/engineering. The IP involved quite a bit of chemistry and materials with applications in display, QD, PV and battery -fields. What I really needed was an attentive lawyer,
(a) who also knows and/or understands some chemistry, materials, and current technology,
(b) who makes me cautious about all the potential pitfalls as IP deals with industry and I am a professor (so, I am used to living in academic ivory tower),
(c) who can offer quick turn over through all the corrections
(d) who is affordable (the specific IP, Amy was hired for, was paid out of my own pocket, not from the university/company; so I did not have unlimited funds).
Amy provided all.
I especially was impressed by Amy's
(i) critical suggestions,
(ii) ability to make me think more to make the IP more thorough than where I started from, and
(iii) ease in accepting her deficit of knowledge in certain technical scientific aspects (I really appreciated this. A lawyer is not expected to know all the details of the research aspect in a particular scientific topic. But their effort to look knowledgeable, when they are not, end up wasting time and my/institution's money. With Amy, this was totally avoided, which, perhaps, helped to keep the cost low.)

I have known Amy for the past 3 years and consider her a friend as well as my intellectual property attorney. When we first met, I was trying to figure out how to obtain several patents and had no idea how to proceed, or who I could trust. At that time, I had talked to several patent attorneys. Most of them didn't show any real interest in my project. Luckily I found Amy. She was very responsive and I could tell she had true interest in my project. We worked well together and she proved she was someone I could trust to provide sound advice, respond quickly, and provide high quality in her work product.
Amy made the patent process understandable by clearly explaining each step from start to finish.
Since our first meeting, we have successfully put together a trademark, filed several patents, and have had many patents published. I now have a growing company based on my patented products, with increasing sales every day.
I highly recommend Amy for any intellectual property needs.

Amy is my go-to attorney for all litigation-related questions and concerns. I can always count on her to be honest and to take all of my concerns into consideration when making legal decisions, which is invaluable.
