About Me

I founded Alloy Patent Law in 2014 with the core mission of improving inventor access to legal services. I recognized that individual inventors and small businesses had significant legal needs that traditional law firms were not adapted to handle.

I focus my practice on a few select areas and work with a select clientele in order to tailor my services to their needs. My practice includes patents, trademarks, and trade secrets. The majority of my clients are inventors who are working to protect their IP, which means that most of my practice is writing patent applications, patentability opinions, and patent prosecution. Many of my inventor clients have associated businesses, so trademark application, prosecution, and defense also comprise a significant portion of my work. My clients are from an array of industries: mechanical, manufacturing, automation, software, cannabis, and chemical, to name a few.

Prior to becoming a patent lawyer and founding Alloy Patent Law, I spent ten years as an engineer with Electroimpact, a Washington engineering firm specializing in aircraft assembly automation. In my role with Electroimpact, I designed and built a wide variety of aircraft assembly machines, and machine components including machine major structure, machine axes, and process tools. I have developed assembly machines, tools, and processes for aircraft including the 737, 767, 777, 787, F/A 18 Super Hornet, A350, A400M, and multiple orbital satellites.

Importantly, during my time at Electroimpact, I had the pleasure of working with a number of very talented engineers. Many of my colleagues worked on personal projects, and many of those eventually went on to found their own companies based on their work. I worked closely with a number of inventors, and I witnessed firsthand the significance of patents and intellectual property. Electroimpact itself was founded when the owner and president earned a patent on a low-voltage riveting technique that served as the industry standard for aircraft fastening and assembly. The company grew from a small handful of core individuals in 1986 to over 750 employees at most recent count, the bulk of whom are engineers.

While working full time as an engineer, I attended Seattle University School of Law. Despite the demands of my engineering career, I graduated among the top 5% of my class. I received top honors in multiple law courses and a variety significant academic distinctions and merit scholarships during my legal studies.

I entered law school with an idea of what I wanted to do, and clarified that idea during my studies. In 2012, I conceived of Alloy Patent Law and its core mission. In the ensuing years I have continually worked to adapt the practice to provide inventors with the best possible legal representation at reasonable prices. I am proud to work with and help so many talented and creative individuals.
