Helping You Change The World
Now Partnered With Doucet Law
"The Peace of Mind Lawyers"
I started my own law firm straight out of law school and have been practicing law in Columbus, Ohio for 5+ years. During that time, I focused on business law and litigation, gaining some exposure to intellectual property law. While running my firm in 2021, I decided to go back to school and get my patent license. Since then, I’ve been focusing on IP matters including patent & trademark applications, copyright issues, and infringement issues.
I’ve been able to use my specialized Patent and IP knowledge to innovators with various IP issues. With my background in litigation and transactions, I can protect a company’s IP through documentation or through the court system.
Now, I run the IP department for Doucet Law. I advise all of the firm’s IP clients on patent applications, trademarks, licensing agreements, and transactional IP concerns.
Provisional patents are public disclosures that preserve your ability to file a utility patent and allow you to present your idea as “patent pending”.
Utility patents are patents on functionality that give you the right to sue infringers using your idea without permission.
Design patents protect the ornamental design of an invention as long as the design is separate from the invention’s functionality.
Plant patents are patents protecting newly discovered or created species of plants.
International patents under the PCT allow inventors to expedite the process of filing multiple patents in participating foreign countries.

The Best Intellectual Property Lawyers Keep You Out of Court
Most law firms practice intellectual property law either as part of a general practice, or as part of a non-litigation practice.
These lawyers don’t go to court, so they don’t know how to keep you out of court.
My practice includes litigating complex business and IP matters in court. I’ve been to court over several business contracts relating to Intellectual Property terms; I’ve defended patent infringement claims; and I’ve helped clients dispute trademark and copyright infringement issues. By going to court, I know what it takes to help you avoid it.
