Jeff approaches his work not only with his brilliant mind and strong discipline, but also with honest humility, allowing him to quickly get up to speed on your IP needs. With a background in engineering and a knack for legal writing, Jeff has strengths that are especially valuable in an IP attorney. He is incredibly accessible; his ability to listen attentively and communicate effectively are byproducts of his deep value of people and relationships. Not only will he be able to understand the technical aspects of your innovation, he will seek to understand you and your IP goals. Time with Jeff is productive and empowering. But that isn’t just with clients: Jeff’s off-hours are spent being a spectacular father of 4 (especially in providing loving care for a daughter with cerebral palsy and epilepsy), playing pickleball and volleyball, or baking pizza for friends in his outdoor oven.
