How did you get into entrepreneurship?

I saw a need to help other professionals in an ethical and considerate fashion.

Why do you do what you do?

I started off my career as a litigation attorney, which tended to be less constructive. I shifted the focus of my law practice toward patent protection and assisting other entrepreneurs with building and protecting what matters to them.

What tools, resources or books have you used to start and/or grow your business?

The best resources are the people within the local community. We live in a robust and talented community full of entrepreneurs, engineers and successful businesses.

Why did you choose to locate your business in Florida?

Florida has been my home for 25 years. It is a special place with a lot of untapped potential.

What advice do you have for other entrepreneurs?

Be determined but smart. Consider where it is that you want to be in one, three, and five years and plot a course toward meeting your goals.

How can other entrepreneurs help you?

We live in a unique economic ecosystem where a lot of entrepreneurs have specialized skills. As a patent attorney and former litigation attorney, I am a part of that ecosystem with specialized skills that not many other attorneys possess. Other entrepreneurs can help me by letting me help them.
