"During my senior year of undergraduate studies in Chemical Engineering at the University of Idaho, a patent attorney introduced me to the possibility of intellectual property law practice. I quickly decided to pursue that career, and deciding to stay at the University of Idaho for law school was an easy choice. The University’s proximity to cutting-edge industry and higher education research is a perfect environment in which to gain real-world experience while studying law. My time at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories and the Washington State University Research Foundation, both just down the road from the U of I, provided the practical groundwork that I built upon with courses in unfair competition, antitrust, copyrights, trademarks, and patents. Idaho has a rich history for being a national leader in patents-per-capita rankings, and earning my law degree in Idaho opened the door to beginning and growing my IP practice here. I now focus my practice on helping individuals and business, in Idaho and abroad, identify and protect their intellectual property. I see, first hand, that the entrepreneurial, innovative, and tech spirit is alive and thriving in Idaho. There is no better place from which to enter that inventive and creative world than at University of Idaho College of Law."
