Personal Biography:Seasoned senior level paralegal - deep experience in IP Law. Strong work ethic. I have the privilege of seeing both law firm and client perspectives and understand what folks need and want, whether it be cost savings or drill down on a specific matter. I literally "fell" into IP in 1999 and haven't looked back. My specialty is Trademarks and Copyrights and their children (Domains and Social Media) - but I have grown to love patent work too. My goal is to continue IP practice support to Law Firms, in-house Legal Departments and IP vendors.
