My Professional Background

Ive been practicing intellectual property law since 2005. If youd survey my clients, I believe that theyd say that I deliver sound advice thats on time and on budget, and that Im almost always available to answer any pressing questions. In addition, because I spent a significant part of my career working at large New York law firms but now have my own firm, Im able to deliver the caliber of legal work that youd expect from a leading Big Apple firm at a fraction of the cost. Finally, I do a significant amount of my work on a fixed fee basis, and I believe that clients like the cost certainty that these arrangements provide.

My clients range in size from multinationals to startups. Whether you are at either end of the spectrum, Id love the opportunity to see if I could meet your legal needs. For more information about me, please see About Us or Contact Us.

Community Service

Like many Nashvillians, Im committed to community service. I currently serve as a Board Member at St. Bernard Academy and Im a Rotarian with the Rotary Club of Green Hills.
