Five Questions with…April Price

April Price Attorney At Law

Meet April, a Lane & Waterman patent attorney with great taste in Quad Cities Mexican food.

  1. What made you want to become a lawyer? My parents always knew I would become a lawyer because I argued about everything. That may be why I did, but I stay with it because I enjoy the feeling of helping ease someone’s burden and hearing their relief when I help them solve their problem.
  1. What do you do for fun? I’ve recently taken up running again, and I’m training for a half-marathon. My husband and I run together, which can be fun.
  1. What’s your favorite place to eat in the Quad Cities? Hands down, La Rancherita in Rock Island.
  1. Why have you chosen to focus on patent law? I’ll spare you the Venn Diagram, but there is a small amount of people who have an engineering background who are interested in practicing law. So my path was almost carved for me, having a Manufacturing Engineering degree and a law degree.
  1. Where did you grow up?” I grew up on a farm in Alpha, Illinois. I miss being in the country, and I want that for my kids. Some day I would love to move to the country and have a farm where we raise chickens and make our own soap.
