Q: What kind of law do you practice?
A: I practice in all areas of intellectual property law – patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. In the past, I have handled matters involving prosecution (i.e., the process of obtaining a patent or trademark), litigation, licensing and client counseling. My website includes other pages that describe intellectual property law and the types of matters that I can handle in more detail.

Q: Where do you practice law?
A: I am licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I am also registered to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”). I maintain an office in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The physical address is 615 Washington Road, Suite 405, Pittsburgh, PA 15228 (Mt. Lebanon Township).

Q: I am located in a state other than Pennsylvania. Can you represent me before the USPTO?
A: Yes. As a registered patent attorney, I can represent individuals, companies and other entities in patent matters before the USPTO from all over the world. I can also represent individuals, companies and other entities in trademark matters before the USPTO because such matters are governed by federal law.

Q: Do you offer a free consultation?
A: In most cases, I will meet with potential clients for a free consultation either in person or over the phone. Usually, I will speak to a client, briefly, in advance of the consultation in order to get some basic information about the matter and schedule an appointment for the consultation for the following week.
