DeAngelis assists clients with their domestic and international patent portfolios with regard to patent preparation and prosecution, freedom to operate analyses, and infringement analyses for design and utility patents.

He received his law degree from the Chicago Kent College of Law at the Illinois Institute of Technology and his bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin.
