Strong Electrical Engineering background
Prior to becoming a patent attorney, Payton gained years of experience working as an Electrical Engineer in the medical and defense industries. He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) from the University of Colorado. Payton began his career as an Electrical Engineer working on the design and development of power modules where he gained experience in programming embedded systems and designing data acquisition, control, and power electronic devices. He continued his career working as an Electronics Engineer in the production and development of implantable pacemakers and defibrillators in the medical industry, where he supported the design and development of low-power sensing and voltage conversion circuitry of implantable devices.
Payton attended John Marshall Law School in Atlanta while working as an Electronics Engineer on the production and development of the C-130J Aircraft. He graduated law school in 2013 at the top of his class and is certified to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Providing a unique skillset
Payton is consistently relied on to draft patent applications requiring in-depth knowledge of complex technologies. With a deep understanding of the technology, Payton can describe inventions in applications in layman's terms and work with inventors to uncover patentable aspects. Having a clear understanding of inventions allows Payton to draft applications that fully protect inventions with well thought out claims. Payton has provided patent services to clients in a wide area of technologies, such as radio-frequency (RF) front-end circuitry, telecommunications, power conversion and amplification systems, renewable energy, and artificial intelligence.
In his free time, Payton enjoys spending time with his son and daughter and spending time outdoors with his family.
