About Us

A long distance runner must prepare by conditioning the body and mind for endurance. Researching the track helps plot the fastest course. Learning about the other runners provides a needed edge to outlast the competition.

We prepare our clients from the onset that protecting intellectual property and profiting therefrom is a marathon, not a sprint.  Navigating the trademark, copyright, and patent process can be confusing and oftentimes overwhelming. The right legal team will prevent you from making costly mistakes and veering off course.

How We Work

First, we begin by getting to know you and your business. While we may use various intake forms to obtain specific information, we prefer to start the process of forming an attorney/client relationship with either a phone call or a scheduled office consultation.

During this initial interaction, which is always FREE, we take this opportunity to learn more about your specific needs and goals. We listen and take notes to capture a clear picture of what it is you’re looking to accomplish. If we are able to help you, we provide you with the information and pricing so you can effectively consider your options and make the best decision possible before beginning with our office.

Should you decide to proceed with our law office, we then create a road map to accomplish your objectives and goals. Usually goals aren’t attainable overnight, so we leverage “checkpoints” during the process that help stay on course and ultimately reaching the “finish line” on time and within your budget. Furthermore, we also chart a visual road map which shows exactly where you are now, where the finish line is, and which objectives should be met to reach your goal.

Our ultimate mission is to plot the safest, surest, and most stress-free road map towards accomplishing your goals. We are able to do this based on our extensive experience in dealing with Intellectual Property work in the fields of patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, licensing, and contracts.

We work closely with you to accomplish each of your objectives in the most beneficial order of priority. To do so, we provide a variety of legal services for acquiring a patent, trademark, and copyright assets. We also provide legal solutions for forming corporate entities, drafting various types of legal instruments, valuating intellectual property assets, and bridging gaps between you and your ideal business targets. We strategically and efficiently work through your road map until we successfully reach your goals and finish line.
