    I have been paying intellectual property attorneys to protect consumer products I've been involved in for over 35 years. Shane Cortesi is my all time favorite IP attorney. He is very accessible, honest, affordable, listens well and speaks clearly and treats my money and my interests as if they were his own. Shane is the one out of 100 lawyers that give the other 99 a good name.
