Tom is a solo patent and trademark attorney with a practice focused on preparing and prosecuting patent and trademark applications for clients including independent inventors, start-ups, and growing companies. Tom has a broad base in mechanical, electrical, materials, computer, and systems engineering and works with clients in each of these fields.
Tom graduated from Harvey Mudd College with a degree in engineering and then from the University of Arizona College of Law, where he was an editor of the Arizona Law Review. He was previously a judicial clerk for the Honorable Susan A. Ehrlich at the Arizona Court of Appeals. Tom started his own practice in 2008, dedicated to providing its clients with personal, understandable, and proficient service. His practice offers patent, trademark, and copyright solutions to independent inventors, entrepreneurs, and growing businesses. He started and designed the practice to help passionate entrepreneurs realize their dreams. His vision was a law firm whose product was not a patent grant or trademark registration, but a dream attained. Through listening to his clients, to what their goals are, what their future plans encompass, and what possibilities are on the horizon, Tom provides representation beyond the fungible commodity of other firms. The firm provides counsel to surround a client’s questions, concerns, and development. Tom created his solo practice to challenge the traditional law firm model and prove that caliber and cost need not have a direct relationship. The firm is less expensive, more transparent, and more responsive than many other firms.
When away from work, Tom spends most of his time with his family, dogs, and cats and training for Ironman triathlons.
