A scientist with years of research experience
As a former biologist, Stephanie Moser is a sharp, detail-first attorney in Patterson + Sheridan’s Houston office who understands how much time, energy and investment inventors pour into their work. She protects her client’s intellectual property by preparing, prosecuting, litigating and resolving disputes for patents involving biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices and procedures.
Stephanie has more than seven years of research experience as a scientist. After receiving her undergraduate degree in biology, Stephanie worked on research and development methods for a startup biotechnology company. She then led a team of researchers to extend the shelf life of post-market drugs and facilitated research on how polysorbate degradation affects medication.
Having researched and developed pharmaceuticals at all stages of their processes, Stephanie became a patent attorney to help guide research through to the end of its process, where it is ultimately codified and protected.
An approachable, caring and dependable attorney
Stephanie drives her practice through being detail-oriented: she understands how crucial even a fraction of a measurement can be in a case and therefore seeks to understand her client’s technology in a meticulous manner. She is never afraid to ask a question when something doesn’t add up and believes in having open communication with a client to support them fully.
While in law school, Stephanie completed pro bono work at a senior legal services center focused on elder abuse law, where she performed intake calls for new clients and monitored the progress of cases. She also performed pro bono work at an IP clinic for a year, preparing trademarks and patents for a variety of clients.
Stephanie received her Bachelor’s of Science in biology from Santa Clara University and earned her J.D. from the University of San Francisco School of Law. While in law school, she was an editor for the USF Intellectual Property and Technology Law Journal, as well as a Comments Editor for USF Law Review Volume 57.
When not in the office, Stephanie likes to read, paint, bake and craft macrame tapestries. She also enjoys scouting out new coffee shops, taking care of her many plants and snuggling her cat, Socrates.
