I am an attorney based in Palo Alto, CA who specializes in intellectual property, contract and corporate transactional matters. I have represented a wide variety of businesses from individuals and mom & pop shops to large multinational companies. I understand the different needs that each business has and enjoy helping my clients address those needs and grow their companies. I primarily help clients with their trademarks and copyrights and assist them in the developing and protecting their brands and ideas.
Prior to joining LegalForce, I was a research attorney and worked in the legal department of a large retailer assisting them with drafting and negotiating contracts, and analyzing, researching and drafting company policies. This experience has reinforced the value and importance of being thorough and taking a proactive approach to addressing legal issues within your organization to avoid future litigation and costs. I help my clients by serving as their general counsel and helping them identify possible issues and addressing them before they become problems.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Finance from San Jose State University. I attended Santa Clara University School of Law where I obtained my J.D.
I am licensed to practice law by the state of California. I also practice federal trademark law before the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board.
