A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.
— Steve Jobs - Wired, 1996


We hired Gary because he knows his way around high-tech and Internet law (and related topics like intellectual copyright) — but apart from being an expert, he is also an ideal adviser to us in other ways. He’s got a deep understanding of how small businesses work, and as such he makes sure we spend our dollars wisely. Not only that, but he’s a genuine pleasure to do business with — friendly, no-nonsense, and able to translate legal concepts into accessible language.

Gary is a great person to work with. He is practical, to-the-point and will always make time for his client when it is crunch time. I highly recommend him.

"You need legal services tailored to your specific needs. You require a value based combination of legal knowledge, experience and business advice with a practical, down-to-earth commercial perspective. And you need someone who can listen and translate your needs into a plan of action that works for you."

Since 1975 I have provided individualized legal services to small and mid-sized owner operated businesses and large corporations. I do my utmost to serve you as though I am your in-house legal counsel with a vested interest in your success.

I restrict my practice to e-commerce, software and databases, information technology, the Internet and other cloud based technologies, telemedicine, corporate, contracts, technology, privacy, trademarks and intellectual property law, licensing, and legal advice for start-ups and expanding businesses (like employment law, confidentiality agreements, copyrights and trademarks). I also incorporate businesses and assist in stock option plans, shareholders' agreements, corporate finance and mergers and acquisition work for start-ups and companies seeking to expand their businesses.


 My clients' privacy means a lot to me. But what I can say is that clients have included mid-sized software companies, start-ups, other law-firms, consultants, content creators, and e-commerce websites, all having a wide variety of legal issues. My clients work in a variety of industries using many different business models.
