Jessica Gutierrez Alm

Your invention is your investment. I’ll help you protect it.

My Approach

I work with clients in a variety of technological fields to protect their inventions, and develop focused and cost-effective patent strategies. I enjoy working with inventors who are passionate about their ideas. I draw from my engineering background to understand the nuance of my clients’ inventions, and translate that into legal language.

Before becoming a lawyer, I was an Airport Design Engineer, designing improvement projects for airports throughout the southwestern United States. Originally from Arizona, I have been lucky enough to call Minnesota my home since 2011. In my spare time, I enjoy tackling various home improvement and DIY projects.
