“As an intellectual property attorney, I enjoy protecting and generating value for the ideas of my clients.”
Andrew concentrates his practice in intellectual property law with an emphasis on patent preparation, prosecution, and clearance work, primarily in the mechanical arts.
He has assisted clients in relation to a wide variety of mechanical and electromechanical technologies, including medical instruments, hospital beds, robotic devices, automotive transmission shifters, vehicle seats, pedal assemblies, motion transmission cables, differentials, axles, four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive systems, chassis components, window assemblies, weatherseals, antenna systems, building door and window systems, and firearms.
Before becoming an attorney, Andrew was an intern in Howard & Howard's Intellectual Property Intern Program, where he trained in the practice of patent law under the close supervision of licensed attorneys, while attending law school in the evenings. Prior to joining Howard & Howard, Andrew held the position of a project engineer at a local automotive supplier where he worked in product development and engineering of airbags and steering wheels across numerous vehicle platforms for several OEMs. He also designed custom design validation and production validation test equipment. As an engineer, Andrew took projects from conception, through design, and into production.
