Protecting your ideas is essential to growing your brand and gaining recognition.

Providing affordable legal services has always been a passion of mine. I have worked with several groups dedicated to providing help to underserved communities. I wanted to start my own law firm so I could continue to help underserved artists and innovators obtain IP protection. Many times, IP protection is out of reach for the average person, but I hope to provide a way for each and every one of my clients–no matter the budget–get the protection they need. IP law should not be available solely for big corporations or wealthy individuals. 

Protecting your art or invention is critical to success because it allows you to prevent others from copying your work. I will help you determine which type of protection is the best for your budget and project, to ensure you are protected against infringers. Give me a call today to set up an appointment or to ask a question. No project or idea is too small!

Areas of Practice



Innovators must protect their inventions with a patent, so they can prevent others from profiting off their ideas. I help my clients obtain patent protection for their unique inventions and license the technology to others.

Copyright Law

Protecting your unique works with a copyright is essential, because it allows the person holding the copyright to get additional remedies. I assist my clients in obtaining copyright protection for their works.

Trademark Law

Developing a recognized brand is key for any business looking to grow and develop new customers. Trademark protection allows you to protect your brand, and prevent others in your industry from using the mark. I help my clients obtain trademark protection for their brands.

Business Formation

Don't know how to get your startup off the ground? I can help you choose the best business entity and draft the necessary documents.


Entering into an agreement can be a daunting undertaking. I can review contracts to make sure there are no surprises, and draft agreements which are fair and sound.


Contact me for rates

The initial consultation is free. After the initial consultation, fees are charged on an hourly rate or a flat rate depending on the case.
