For many inventors, coming up with an idea is easy. However, when it comes to protecting the idea, many people struggle to understand the complicated procedures necessary to file for a patent. As a result, that’s why this firm was started, to fix that. With over 15 years of experience working as a patent attorney, I help inventors strategically prepare and file patent applications. As an inventor and entrepreneur, I also help inventors clarify the potential risks involved with investing in a patent. For this reason, I often recommend ways to reduce costs.
While I am a patent attorney and biomedical engineer who has over a decade of experience helping inventors protect their ideas. Consequently, I am also an inventor passionate about developing an artificial pancreas to help people treat diabetes. In addition, I co-founded Pancreum, a medical device start-up.
Having earned my Biomedical Engineering degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in 2000 and my law degree from Suffolk University in 2005. I am admitted to the Massachusetts State Bar (#665255) and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (#59,869).
As a result of my years as an inventor and engineer, I believe that all inventors looking to protect their ideas should learn as much as possible about the patent system and the costs required along the entire process. My firm has a flat-fee billing policy so that clients feel confident knowing that they will not be surprised by an unexpected legal expense. I provide each client with a level of care as though it were my own patent application.
Inventors and creatives need a law firm that listens to what they need and truly understands the headaches and frustrations in Intellectual Property law. The patent office policies and procedures are complicated and difficult to understand. We use a flat-fee billing policy so that clients feel confident knowing that they will not be surprised by unexpected expenses. Furthermore, I demand each client be provided with a level of care as if it were my own patent application. I will even turn inventors away from filing patent applications, if I feel that their ideas are just not ready.
My firm and I are dedicated to providing real-world, honest advice to help inventors protect and prototype their ideas, in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Having a lawyer is often the difference between success and failure. A good intellectual property lawyer is priceless. Without one, you’re basically out in the cold on your own. I have seen so much go wrong for clients’ businesses and even personal finances apart from the company.
