"Mr. Hulsey is an outstanding professional. He is straight-forward and knowledgeable. He has tremendous experience in US and international IP issues. Bill and his staff are quickly responsive and take the time to explain the “how’s” and “why’s” of IP law. At the USPTO in DC, he is engaging and expert. I have experience with other firms, Hulsey is by far the most able."
