"As a patent newbie, I needed a lot of hand-holding when it came to preparing to file my patent application. Jeff helped walk me through the process every step of the way. He impressed me with his clear communication skills as well as his professionalism and competency. He made the whole process as painless as possible and I would use him again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!"
