Maiorana, P.C. - Registered Patent Attorneys

A trip down memory lane ...

Over the years, especially the early years, I ran into many attorneys and engineers that had an influence over my professional career. I figured I'd write a few notes on some of the memorable encounters of how I became a Patent Attorney in Michigan.

During my stay at Barnes, Kisselle (a.k.a. Barnes, Kisselle, Raisch, Choate, Whittmore and Hulbert - wow, what a long name!), I worked with Chester Davis, William Francis, Robert Collins, Robert Choate, Randy W. Tung and others.

Francis, Collins and Choate were the authors of a lawschool case law book on Patent Law , published by West Publishing. Robert Choate retired and the successor book was carried on by Francis and Collins. We studied this book in lawschool when I took a course in Patent Law with adjunct professor Chet Davis. Due to my success in the course, I was offered an associate position at Barnes Kisselle, where I worked on electrical patent applications with Randy Tung.

Randy had an international client base with his strong connections to Taiwan. Randy moved on to start his own firm - Tung and Associates. It looks like Randy retired. I found an interesting article that mentions how Randy bought a house in Los Gatos in Silicon Valley that was designed and built by Steve Wozniak. That is an impressive house!
