What does being named a Super Lawyer/Rising Star mean to you?
It’s nice recognition since SuperLawyers uses peer nominations for the award. You don’t necessarily get a lot of recognition day-to-day as an attorney, especially from other attorneys, so it’s a nice change.
What made you want to become an attorney?
I always wanted to get an engineering degree, because I do love science and math, but the work of an engineer doesn’t necessarily interest me too much as it doesn’t really fit my personality. Going to law school complimented my engineering nicely, especially as a patent attorney, as it allows me to use my skills as an engineer and a lawyer.
What is the most satisfying part of your job?
Getting a good outcome for a client, whether it’s obtaining a registered trademark, issued patent, or settlement. If the client is happy, that’s what matter.
Aside from being an awesome attorney, what else are you great at?
I am still a pretty good golfer. After fighting cancer for a few years, I am playing again, but still not at the point I once was. But I will get there. I am also a pretty good tap dancer, but I am definitely still learning the craft.
