“Jesse is an extraordinarily thorough lawyer with great attention to detail and a passion for patent law. Jesse’s technical abilities are second to none. He consistently demonstrates a command of all aspects of a case and leverages his skills as a patent prosecutor to great effect in litigation. Jesse has a preternatural ability to assimilate vast amounts of complex information and to create a relatable narrative for a jury.” – Andy Cooper, Associate General Counsel at Meta

“Jesse was the partner at SHB who managed a fairly complex and lengthy IP litigation matter for me when I was the CFO of TeleSign. Litigation on either side is not something I enjoy, but I could not be more pleased with how Jesse managed our case / process. He has substantial expertise and experience, but also has the ability to reduce the issues into consumable information for executives / board members. He was creative and able to discuss and provide sound options at every step of the litigation. He is a consummate professional and I appreciated his civility even when opposing counsel made it difficult to be civil. I would not hesitate to use Jesse again and happy to recommend him to others.” – Matt Hardy, then CFO at TeleSign Inc.

“What is most admirable about Jesse is his interest in developing the next generation of attorneys. Jesse has a knack for working and studying intentionally and breaking down into bite-size pieces information that would not otherwise be easily digestible. He gives his full attention to what he is engaged with, whether it be a case he is working on or his role as substitute teacher at his children’s school. These are the skills he teaches the next generation of legal talent.” – Lischen Reeves, Corporate Counsel at Cerner Corporation (now Oracle)

“During my career as an in-house patent counsel, having a trusted relationship with outside counsel was essential. For over 15 years, I worked with Jesse on various patent prosecution and patent litigation matters. Jesse’s legal advice is top-notch and his case management skills are excellent. He provides high quality and timely legal services at a reasonable cost.” Steve Funk (retired), formerly IP Counsel at Sprint (now T-Mobile)
