Patrick Schlesinger was one of the many patent attorneys who started their life in patents at George Washington University Law School while concurrently being employed by General Electric.  He moved to Oklahoma where he gained his J.D. from the University of Tulsa.  He later was a resident of  California where he held corporate leadership and patent bar positions. Since 1993 he had been an independent patent expert serving a variety of interests.
