TESTIMONIALS

  • “Michael did work for us while I was CEO at Guided Therapeutics and after spending literally millions on patent work, I have to say that Michael is one of the best IP attorneys that I have ever worked with. I highly recommend him. Almost any attorney can get a patent issued, however the real trick is to get a patent issued that has real value and can stand against litigation. Michael is also especially knowledgeable in foreign IP rights and is very cost effective.”

    -Mark Samuels, CEO, Guided Therapeutics, medical device manufacturer

  • "Heather is a great lawyer; however, one of her best attributes is that she also thinks like a business person. She understands our needs and gives us practical, real-world advice -- not something you get from many lawyers."
