I have a bachelor’s degree and a law degree from Vanderbilt University. I am active with the International Trademark Association, and I was named to Managing Intellectual Property magazine's list of IP Stars the last 8 years.

"My first project through Upcounsel. Randy was very response. I am probably a bit more insecure when it comes to getting legal advice. I would of like more reassurance but I guess you lose that face-to-face interaction which can act as a way of providing confidence. I would use Randy again, but probably structure project with more consultation time."
