"Campbell is a patent genius. As a new business, we needed to protect our technology before launching our first product. Campbell crafted a custom short and long term patent strategy to best fit our needs. He is very professional and was very prompt in drafting and filing the application. We are thrilled with his work product and will definitely use Campbell again when the time comes to convert into a non-provisional applicaiton."
