"My research experience is comprised of projects at law firms. I have worked at five different law firms, researching a wide range of issues including proper procedure for obtaining written testimonial depositions in foreign countries for use in TTAB proceedings, relevancy of foreign use to fame of trademarks in U.S., limitations on damages in patent infringement cases when additional claims are added long after the initial complaint, requirements for specimens in trademark applications when goods are computer software, and others."
"One thing that I would bring to any firm is my passion for my area of law. I love the work I do in intellectual property. Additionally, I stay very organized. I manage my time effectively and take pride in that. I am also a hard worker. Growing up in a farm community, I've worked in potatoes, pumped gas, and washed toilets. I dig in and get the job done. I also have a strong interest in the business building side of law. My time in sales taught me strong communication skills and I enjoy networking, building relationships, and expanding my professional circle."
"First, I write it down. I make sure I understand what the assignment is and when it is due. I want to see how much time I would need to get it done, compared to the other assignments I need to do. I want the attorney who gives me the project to have an accurate representation about when I can get it done. I let the attorney know when he/she can expect an update on the project then I go to work. When I finish the project I typically send it as an email attachment, with an explanation of what I did and how much time I spent. I also make sure to ask for feedback, so I can continually improve."
"I have had growing experiences, but I have been fortunate to get through them successfully. It has been challenging going to law school with a family. I am married with three children, and my family wants me to be with them. Successful families require time together. As a result, I have approached school like a job where I stay at school to do my work, then come home and focus on my family. Thankfully, my family (especially my wife) has been very patient and supportive."
