"I recently filed for a US patent with Liliana. The process was painless, Liliana captured what my product was about and conveyed it better than I expected in the patent application. She was a pleasure to work with, very professional, and very accessible. She is a true scholar and extremely knowledgable! I would recommend giving Liliana a call if you are in the hunt for a patent or trademark attorney. I am very pleased!"

"Liliana was a pleasure to work with to file a provisional patent! She very clearly explained the strategies behind the claims we want and how they should be approached, and how to best position the technology for patent prosecution. Her work is of incredibly high caliber, very attentive to detail, and produced the provisional quickly and accurately. Best of all, as her client, she was a joy to interact with. Emails would be responded to always the same-day with thoughtful answers to any questions I had, and Liliana is equally patient and kind as she is intelligent and insightful! Not only will I recommend her to anyone looking for IP protection, but I will retain her services again when I move forward with this technology and others!"
