""Steve was the first IP attorney I have worked with who not only understood technology and the basics of patents (obvious prerequisites), but who also had a keen understanding for the business objectives of developing a company's IP portfolio. He is also very good at managing the inner-workings of the PTO, which seems impenetrable to many of us. He is a joy to work with.""
