Alfredo has always viewed the practice of law as a problem solving endeavor. An experienced litigator, he uses his training and skills to evaluate, counsel and successfully address client matters as efficiently and effectively as possible.
By way of example, he was lead counsel for a successful defendant in the patent case that was the most quickly disposed of by judgment on the merits in the Northern District of California in 2005, Wham-O v. Sport Dimension, 398 F.Supp. 2d 1081 (ND Cal. 2005). He knows that litigation can be expensive and so seeks the litigation solution with the most value to the client.
His law practice is focused in the areas of business litigation, patent litigation, licensing disputes, commercial litigation, insurance coverage and real estate disputes. He has performed services for clients in such technical areas as medical devices, sport product patents, computer input devices, wafer bumping, trade secret and super I/O devices.
As a former associate at Heller Ehrman’s Los Angeles office, he handled complex commercial litigation matters and was the first lawyer that office ever sponsored to be an acting Assistant District Attorney where he developed substantial jury trial experience.
Born in the Philippines and fluent in Tagalog he has deep Pan-Asian exposure having lived in Hong Kong where he worked as a contract attorney, developed real estate in the Philippines, and counseled many Asian based companies involved in litigation in forums across the United States.
Alfredo continues to enjoy traveling and is active in youth activities including being a leader of his local Boy Scouts of America unit.
