About Patti

I've been in the legal field for 25 years in various roles including management and legal operations. My focus is in intellectual property, particularly patents, but I also have worked with attorneys in corporate and litigation. I can review resumes for prospective attorneys, paralegals, or other legal staff, and can answer questions on law firms and corporate legal departments. I'm a native Californian, and went to school at UC Berkeley and San Jose State. On a personal note, I like to read, play the piano, work out, and go out to dinner (eating being my favorite past-time!).
