Mr Pittman gave me a quote from the get go no running around he was on the button with my need and he was very professional and understood my need he was great to talk to will give another revue when my experience of his work is complete but it was not all about the money he worked with me as u did not have the money the other lawyers were calling as their quote
CLEAR, THOROUGH, KNOWLEDGABLE, RESPONSIVE . . . I had a pretty straight-forward question about who can officiate a wedding and I wanted a legal perspective. A colleague who knows David personally said I should reach out, so I sent him my question. I didn't expect to hear back, since 3 other lawyers had never gotten back to me--my question wasn't going to be any kind of a money-maker. To my surprise and delight, David replied with a well-researched, very clear explanation that puts me in position to move forward with confidence and peace of mind. He didn't charge me anything, so can't identify myself as a client, but, his communication style puts him at the top of the admittedly small pile of lawyers I've worked with, and I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to him again in the future.

I specialize in all aspects of patent, trademark, copyright and all other intellectual property law, licensing, general business and commercial contracts, corporate law and all other related legal matters. I have over 30 years of experience as general counsel and intellectual property counsel for a number of public and private companies, as a senior executive and as counsel to boards of directors of public and private companies. I am also a seasoned negotiator of business and licensing deals, sales of assets, mergers and acquisitions.
I spent six years defending personal injury cases as a litigator in Pennsylvania and New Jersey state and federal courts. My clients were large corporations, big box stores, and business owners who found themselves on the receiving end of a lawsuit. While my job in a law firm provided an adrenaline rush, I always wanted to be a business owner. I started my first business in my kitchen five years ago and within a year and a half my products were sold in close to 100 stores across the country. I managed to accomplish that while still working full time in a law firm and with a new baby at home. It was difficult to figure out everything on my own and while I had some great successes, I also had some spectacular failures. My business ownership experiences allowed me to meet scores of other business owners who started asking me for legal advice. It was those entrepreneurs that inspired me to start my own law practice dedicated to independent business owners. I saw a clear need in the market for a business lawyer that was down to earth, approachable and actually experienced in owning and running a business. As someone that has owned businesses outside of my law practice, I have a distinct viewpoint and experience level that you won't often find with other business lawyers. I ask my clients tons of questions about business strategy, marketing and what they really want from their business. It is this holistic approach, providing both strategic advice and legal guidance in an approachable way that sets my style apart and has saved my clients tens of thousands of dollars that they've been able to add to their bottom line. Whether you hire me to draft a contract for your next deal, establish boundaries for a partnership, or register a trademark, I am there every step of the way to make sure your business is protected and on the smart track to growth so you can concentrate on one thing: your bottom line.
I practice intellectual property law through a solo practice, dedicated to providing patent and trademark services for medical device, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology disciplines. I consult on trademark matters associated with corporate transactional or product branding. Clients range from the large entities such as a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company, major US and foreign universities, to the smaller entities such as start-up biotechnology companies, entrepreneurs, and individual scientists looking to develop new technology. While I enjoy working with the large well-established entities, the interaction with new start-ups and the development of new, uncharted technology is most appealing. I serve on a not-for-profit organization, where I have a first-hand view of the hurdles presented to biotechnology researchers who are looking to exploit their new discoveries and exposure to a wide variety of new technologies that are based on these same discoveries in the medical field. I also have adjunct appointments at major medical schools in the area and research institutes, where I work with individuals in developing their new technology. My role is to be a chaperone in the development process by assisting in the legal needs and contributing to future business development. I bring legal expertise to academic and research scientists who may have never worked with a lawyer, or had exposure to the legal demands of a start-up business and the requirements for developing a sound patent portfolio.
