Ronald is a “science guy” at heart who earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Detroit with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Biology. He intended to pursue a graduate degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry. However, Ronald was drafted in 1969 and served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. When he returned home, he took a job as a research chemist at Energy Conversion Devices, Inc., a high-tech start up company in Troy, Michigan. During that time, he produced a number of innovations. While working with attorneys to secure patents for his inventions, he developed an interest in Patent Law, which led him to law school.
Ron earned his Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from Wayne State University. After earning his law degree, Ron worked as a patent attorney for Energy Conversion Devices for four years before going into private practice.
When he’s not securing patents, Ronald enjoys hiking, photography, painting, brewing beer and baking bread.
