CALHOUN LAW FIRM essentially consists of registered patent attorneys Joe Calhoun and Mark Koo (Of Counsel); and associated with the firm is registered patent attorney Marina Mikhailova J.D., Ph.D. (biological sciences). We are ably supported by our executive assistant, Victoria McDonald, especially proficient in online filings at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, the U.S. Copyright Office, and state and federal courthouses. Although Calhoun Law Firm is a separate and independent firm housed within another business law firm (Jack Nelson Jones), on a case by case basis a co-counsel or associated counsel engagement may be implemented with that firm (or with attorneys in other law firms). Mr. Calhoun is also Associated Counsel to Teraoka & Partners headquartered in San Francisco and having offices in Palo Alto and Los Angeles: he is also Associated Counsel to O’Connor & Associates in San Francisco.
Our law firm offers legal expertise that many law firms do not always have in-house; our firm is often retained through referrals from clients’ attorneys or accountants, and we value our working relationships with such referral sources. Naturally when our services are retained through such referrals, Calhoun Law Firm adheres to a “no poaching” policy, voluntarily limiting its engagement to the matters it was retained for.
