Registered Patent Attorney with 13 years experience in top tier law firms
Licensed Professional Engineer
Degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, PhD dropout in Biochemical Engineering
Generally handle all types of technologies (mechancal, electrical, electromechanical, computer software, business methods, etc.), except hardcore chemistry and biotechnology

Maybe sometime I will explain why I believe it may be better to have a Patent Attorney that is a quick study in any technology, rather than one who has particular experience but preconceived notions in the given field . . .
