Attorney Profile

JALVA_131008_ISchool_48I have represented large and small technology clients for over 15 years, with a focus on drafting and negotiating agreements for Cloud services, software licenses, hardware acquisition, and technology related professional services.  I have extensive experience with enterprise sales and channel distribution agreements.  I also work directly and efficiently with my clients’ product and procurement teams on inbound licensing and services agreements.  I understand all variety of product and distribution models in the technology space, and I am well-grounded in open source licensing and interactions with standards bodies.  I enjoy working on complex Web terms and privacy policies, and other technology-specific matters, such as IPv4 number acquisitions, Microsoft SPLA management, and HIPAA BAA issues.

My clients include Rackspace, Brocade, Cogeco Peer 1, ClearDATA Networks, AllClear ID,,, ImplantBase, and DigitalBeef.

I value clear and concise drafting.  I have served as an Adjunct Professor for Advanced Transactions Drafting at The University of Texas School of Law.

My negotiation style is serious, but non-confrontational.  I am practical and sales-oriented.

I have recently completed my MSIS at The University of Texas School of Information and am working to integrate advanced information management practices into my practice.

I am licensed in the State of Texas and have my primary office in San Antonio.  I travel to Austin on a regular basis to visit my clients there.
