I have more than 15 years of complex commercial litigation experience, with an emphasis on matters at the intersection of law and technology. After graduating second in my class in law school, I began my career at Fish & Neave (now Ropes & Gray), one of the premier patent litigation firms in New York City. After moving back to Texas, I rose through the ranks at Thompson & Knight, where I was a partner. I was also a partner at Dentons, an international law firm.

I joined Goldfarb PLLC to better serve my clients. I am admitted to practice in Texas, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the Southern District of New York, and the Northern and Eastern District of Texas.
