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, SSL.com, Nextseed.co, 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.
