Judith Evans specializes in biotechnology, biochemistry, and medical patents. While an executive vice president for a biotech start-up, she managed a patent portfolio, wrote and prosecuted patent applications, and handled patent litigation in federal court. She has worked at several well-known patent law firms since earning her J.D. from George Mason University School of Law and being admitted to the Virginia and Washington, D.C., bars. Before becoming a patent attorney, Judith worked at the National Institutes of Health in cellular neurobiology, the field in which she earned a Ph.D. from Columbia University. She has been published in Science Magazine and in 1979 was awarded the John S. Newberry Prize at Columbia for excellence in vertebrate zoology. Judith is also fluent in German.
