Experience Matters

When it comes to software inventions such as mobile applications (or "apps") and other new software ideas, you need a software patent attorney that specializes in software patent cases because the landscape of patent laws, rules and case law regarding software patents is constantly evolving and changing.

The vast majority of my practice is devoted to patenting software, so I deal with the Patent Office and software cases every day. This keeps me constantly up to date with the latest developments on how to patent software.

I am a degreed software engineer and have over ten years of experience developing software for companies such as:

  • Harris Space Systems (under contract to NASA for the Space Shuttle Program)
  • Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control Division
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Southwest Research Institute
  • Alliant Techsystems (now owned by Northrop Grumman) 
  • And others

As a patent attorney, I have handled software and mobile application patent cases for companies such as:

  • Google
  • Lockheed Martin
  • Avaya
  • Roblox
  • Columbia University
  • Mt. Sinai Icahn School of Medicine
  • And many, many others - from start up companies to global giants

Don't trust the IP protection of your software technology to just anyone. You need a software patent attorney on your side that is an expert in both software and software patents.

Low, Fixed Fees

We are a flat-fee IP firm. So you get one price for your software patent application and do not get billed hourly or for calls, emails, or other miscellaneous expenses that many law firms charge for. Because I handle so many software patent cases, I can get your case handled efficiently and without unnecessary costs.

Our Central Florida location is low overhead and we pass the savings on to our clients. You get excellent service and expertise without paying for a big law firm building in an expensive city.


I can help you protect your software in the U.S. and other countries no matter where you are located. I am a national and international software patent attorney based in Florida. I have clients across the US and in several other countries.

I handle software patent cases in the US and around the world in numerous other countries and regions such as the EU and Asia.

You Need Full Protection for Your Software From Day One

Most often, we start the patent process before the software is even developed. This means that I can help protect your software invention from day one - the concept or idea stage. 

You need protection in place before you begin to talk with developers or others to help bring your software idea to reality. I can help ensure that you are protected along the the journey from idea to finished product. This is something that is critically important and you won't see it mentioned on other places in the Internet.

More than patents

Also, patenting is one aspect of intellectual property (or IP) protection for software, but there are three other areas of IP related to software that you may not have considered and can also be vitally important: copyright, trademark, and trade secret. You need a software patent attorney that can give you a comprehensive plan for protecting your software that includes all facets of IP so that you have total protection of your idea. Knowing when and how to use each type of IP protection can make all the difference when you are seeking to monetize your software or have a successful and profitable exit from a start-up.
