I recently visited this firm for a patent application. Their 20 years of experience shows. They found a number of things in my device that I had not seen and did an excellent job of writing and filing the patent for me. I could not have asked for better service.



I have known this office since...

I have known this office since 2003. It is a highly professional office that combines high-end technical understanding, writing, and thorough knowledge of patent laws and rules. They boast a highly knowledgeable, detail-oriented and punctual team of attorneys and their assistants. They are also honest and committed to client satisfaction--a combination that makes them one of the best patent attorneys you can dream of.

Wow, real patent attorneys tha...

Wow, real patent attorneys that don't charge a fortune and talk like real people instead of lawyers. They did a great job on helping me file a patent on my invention, and I never knew how important my trademark was to a new business untill we met.



Very Helpful especially with Trademark

Went to see them about my invention for a patent and they were most helpful. Their charges were much less than my last patent because they didn't charge me for every phone call and letter they sent me. But the biggest help was on figuring out a Trademark for the name of my invention. The attorneys helped me name it and get the domain name too. Highly recommended.



Good place for small business

This office is first rate but treats you much better than those big downtown lawfirms. They don't charge you for ever little copy and every time you call them. They were a big help with my patent and even gave me a credit for the money I paid for the provisional patent that I could use toward the formal patent. I filed a Trademark with them too and the trademark attorney was a big help with picking a name I could actually get. I would recommend them to any small business or inventor.



Great for small inventors & startups

They are real patent attorneys. They are very helpful and got my patent for me and helped with my corporation and my trademark. I would recommend them to other small companies or new inventors. They cost half what another firm told me it would cost downtown.



Great for small inventors & startups

We visited their office and their attorneys were great! They not only helped with our patent, they helped us name the product.

The don't try and talk legal but tell you everything in plain English. A great bunch of people.
