An active member of the local intellectual property community, Touhey serves as the President for the Philadelphia Intellectual Property Law Association (PIPLA).
I recently had a serious legal matter that needed immediate attention. I contacted Touhey as he was considered an expert in this matter. It was the best decision I made. He was able to quickly resolve the matter and get results that were way beyond my expectations. Another legal firm quoted me an outcome that Touhey thought (and thought correctly) was way out of line. This, in addition to his friendly conversations, quick email responses, and professionalism, gave me the peace of mind to use him to solve my issue. I am truly grateful for his outstanding work and quick result. The matter I had was quoted to me as taking over two months to resolve. Touhey resolved it within three weeks! I will recommend him to anyone who asks.
