I earned my law degree from Southern Illinois University in 2002, and have 2 decades of experience practicing law. For the first 14 years, I practiced criminal law, growing a very successful solo-attorney practice and gaining extensive courtroom and trial experience. However, as I grew as an attorney, I realized that my interests drew me to a different type of practice. This is where the idea for INTELLEQUITY® was born.
Based on this new interest, I took a few advanced law courses in intellectual property at John Marshall University Law School in Chicago, Illinois. Upon relocating to Portland, Oregon in 2017, I earned my MBA at Portland State University to better help me to understand and assist my clients’ with their business needs.
My recent experience includes trademark, copyright and other intellectual property-related services, business formation and business law. I am licensed to practice in state and federal court in Oregon as well as federal court in the Northern District of Illinois.
