You'll have a hard time finding a better engineer to be your lawyer (or a better lawyer to do engineering work for you, if that's what you need!) I live for the thrill of figuring out how, whether it's "how to get a transistor to do what you want," or "how to convince the judge of my client's position." My background is obviously good for patent work, but I consider my legal skills to be just another tool to be used when appropriate. You know what they say: "If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a thumb!" Not every problem can be solved by a contract or a lawsuit, but almost every problem can be solved. My goal is to solve my clients' problems in the most efficient and economical manner.
If you've got a run-of-the-mill problem, take it to a run-of-the-mill lawyer. But if you've got a problem that has your regular attorney stumped, give me a call. If it's really a tough one, you'll make my day!
