I have known Gerry since high school. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him, personally and professionally. I routinely consult with him on intellectual property-related matters and refer him cases in that practice area. He has a skilled ability to simplify complicated IP-related concepts and explain them to clients who are not as well-versed. He is diligent, responsible, and a very hard worker.

I knew Attorney Pia when he was at his former firm, Pullman & Comley, and while he has been a partner in his own firm, Roche Pia. He is very capable and is a go-to attorney in the area of internet and computer law. Very highly recommended.
