My primary service is turning inventors' ideas into patents, inventions realized. If you have an invention, or inventive idea, that you would like to patent, I would like to help you.
I specialize in the practice of patent law in proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), and I can file and prosecute International patent applications under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT). The services I can provide my clients include preparation, filing, and prosecution of patent applications, as well as prosecution of proceedings in reissues, ex parte and inter parte reexaminations, protests, public use proceedings, interferences, and appeals before the USPTO’s Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences.
Throughout the patent application process to protect a client's invention(s), I can provide my client many services. For a utility patent application for example, these services can include identification of what has been invented, detailed and summary descriptions of the invention(s), search and disclosure of information on prior art, strategically written claims, a title for the invention claimed, an abstract for the descriptions of the invention(s), detailed drawings of the structure and/or process(es) of the invention(s), actual filing of a patent application, amendments to the application in response to patent office objections and/or rejections, timely submittal of required fees and of responses to office actions and notices, request(s) for continued examination (RCE), appeal(s), and desirable application(s) for continuation(s) or division(s).
To become registered, I had to pass the patent bar exam administered by the USPTO, the same bar exam which a lawyer has to pass to become a patent lawyer. As a member of the legal profession, registered as a patent agent and not a lawyer, I serve my clients as legal counsel in providing legal services in patent matters only. I have not passed a State bar exam as needed to become a lawyer, so my law practice excludes my prosecuting legal suits (litigations) for clients in civil courts, State or Federal appeals courts, State Supreme Courts, or the Federal Supreme Court. And I do not prosecute trademarks or copyrights for clients. Therefore, I concentrate my expertise on zealous prosecution of patent applications for my clients.
