About Rinaldo Del Gallo (From The Webite Of The Berkshire Fatherhood Coalition)
Attorney Del Gallo also has extensive experience as a civil rights attorney, working in the areas of free speech rights and ballot access. He was instrumental in protecting the City of Pittsfield from a zoning ordinance that would have allowed time-shares in any residential neighborhood, with a 15-page legal opinion that rebutted the assertion that time-shares was an impermissible regulation of ownership, not use, and thus was proscribed by law. This work was performed bro bono.
He is also an intellectual property attorney and a patent lawyer, and has written what is regarded as one of the most famous law reviews in the area of patent law, “Are Methods of Doing Business Finally Out of Business As A Statutory Exception?,” that helped end the so-called “business method exception,” which paved the way for an entire field of software and Internet related patents.
Attorney Del Gallo graduated from Northeastern University (Boston) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, and graduated from George Washington University (Washington) in the top of his three-year class.
