A close student of his profession, specializing in that intricate branch which has engaged the attention of many leaders of the American bar, he has established for himself a high reputation among those inventors who have sought his advice and professional services. His clientele is ever growing with his reputation for accomplishment, a well-earned reward for careful work and intimate knowledge of his craft.

He entered the Indian service at Shoshoni, Wyoming, in 1904, and was later transferred to the Indian office at Washington; later becoming a member of the Examining Corps of the United States Patent Office, from 1907-1920, when he was made a principal examiner, and shortly thereafter resigned from the government service.
