Meet the Author

I’m a patent attorney registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the Florida bar.

I have my own practice, Cygnet IP Law, P.A.

On the web at:

I began my professional career as an engineer in 1993. I worked as a software engineer for over ten years with companies such as Harris, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. I thoroughly enjoyed developing software and still help friends out with software projects occasionally.

As an engineer, I was lucky enough to work on projects such as the Space Shuttle launch processor, the Javelin missile and many other fascinating defense, telecommunications and aerospace projects.

When researching possible career growth opportunities, I learned about patent law and felt an immediate connection. It seemed to fit my personality and skills.

With encouragement from my wife, I applied for and was accepted into The George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC. My four years of law school were a whirlwind of activity. I worked as a patent agent during the day, went to law school at night, and, with my wife, grew our family by having two more children during law school (I have a total of eight children).

The law school years were tough, but I was learning so much and really enjoyed every minute of it. I actually made better grades in law school than I did in engineering school. I knew I had found my second niche (software was my first).

Besides attending a top 20 law school with one of the best patent law programs in the nation, I have had the good fortune of working with some great colleagues at my former firm, Miles & Stockbridge. The partners there trained me in the day-to-day practice of patent law and always encouraged me to learn more, take on tough cases and work diligently to meet client needs. I owe GW Law School and my mentors at Miles & Stockbridge so much.

I opened my own practice, Cygnet IP Law, PA, in my hometown of Lakeland, FL in 2011. A need to be closer to family called us back to Florida from the DC area.

Having my own practice provides many interesting challenges and gives me the opportunity to work on a wider range of projects for a wider range of clients than I was able to do in the past.

If you have a new idea or invention that you are thinking about patenting, or if you have a trademark or copyright that you’d like to register, I’d love to talk with you about your needs and see how I can help.
