Marty Stoneman Passes Away
Phoenix patent attorney Martin Stoneman passed away on February 5, 2014. Marty had a large presence in the Phoenix patent market; he worked on over 250 issued patents and many more patent applications. Cases continue to issue posthumously and likely will for some time. I knew him only a little, but had colleagues who had worked with him at length. I’d taken over several cases from Marty as well, and clients spoke fondly of him. His death will be felt in the Phoenix community for quite a long time.
Way back in 1993 Marty was my first customer who was an attorney when I started the first ISP based in Arizona. He was always super helpful in helping us debug issues in the early days and was a faithful and patient customer until we sold out five years later.
