    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.
