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.
