"My experience working with Carlos was extremely positive and I highly recommend him. Carlos helped me create and file a patent application that spanned software and hardware areas. His strong background in patent law, solid approach to drafting and refining application documents, and his clear and easy communication skills made the process very smooth and efficient. As I worked with Carlos to develop the application, I found his deep experience in creating strong documents came through in multiple areas. He helped me to understand and explore ways to strengthen the overall IP disclosures and to think through the scope of claims. And given his engineering background, it was very easy to work through IP technical points with him and rapidly get to the document wording we wanted to capture. Carlos was always very responsive and quick with feedback and answers to questions. The documents he created for me, including drawings, were clear and strong. I came away with the IP documents I needed, learned a ton, and really enjoyed my conversations with Carlos. As a founder of a start-up with limited resources and time, working with Carlos was the perfect solution for creating the patent documents I needed. I look forward to working with him again in the future."
