"My company has worked with Ed on literally dozens of patent applications over the past four years. We have always found his work to be of very high quality. Ed is a true professional and has proven that he can handle and understand highly technical and complex scientific information produced by our scientists. I highly recommend Ed's services as a patent attorney to any company that not only needs patent work done - but also needs someone who can think out of the box and advise them on how to best implement their patent strategy.
