"Austin has been our patent attorney for the past few years. We're a small software and product design firm and have worked with Austin extensively for all of our patent applications. In the past we've used several other large sized firms. What we realized is that in the patent law industry, most firms operate like application mills. They're very impersonal and most of the time have clerks writing most of the application with final review by a lawyer you'll almost never get a chance to meet. I really don't have many good things to say about the other firms we've used before Austin. I'm just glad we found him. Without holding back, Austin is simply the best patent attorney we have ever worked with. He is extremely knowledgeable and has always patiently answered any of our questions regarding the patent process. Also, he used to work as a patent reviewer at the US Patent & Trademark Office before he went to law school. This insider's view is a huge advantage for us, because he is able to give us great advice on how to navigate all the red tape and bureaucracy. Another advantage is that Austin was an engineer as well. So most of the time, he's able to quickly understand our products or software applications without endless meetings. This has really come in handy for us, because Austin has given us a lot of great advice on how to word our patents and protect them when marketing our products. Overall, working with Austin has been great. He's very honest, accessible (works from home), and his rates are great for the top notch work he provides. If you're considering another firm, it's to your advantage to give Austin a call and meet with him at his home office. You won't be disappointed, he's definitely the best patent attorney in Orange County."
"I found Austin Bonderer to be honest and straightforward, as well as highly competent. In comparison to competitors, his fees were extremely fair, which at first concerned me, because I am a believer in "you get what you pay for." I'm happy to say my concern was unfounded...he did a fantastic job without sending my budget up in smoke! Although I learned he has passed the bar in three states, which is no easy feat, he tallked in terms I could understand and was never condescending. He listened, offered his professional insight and direction, and ultimately met my objectives. I highly recommend him!"
"Austin has been our patent attorney since 2011, when I founded my first company, Nimble Scooters. He also represents my second company, Lithium Cycles. During the years of working with him, he has filed utility patents and trademarks for us. More importantly, he's defended our designs and brand names from numerous copycat companies in Asia. His efforts have helped us to stay in business over the years and to also grow. I recommend Austin without any reservations at all. He's a fantastic person and a great attorney. He's always steered us in the right direction and all at a good price!"
"I called Austin to inquire about patenting/trademarking and he did not disappoint. His free consultation provided all the information I was searching for, and more. I will absolutely look forward to conducting my business through him in the future."
"Austin is the definition of under promise, over deliver! Austin has been great to work with and consult with whenever we have questions related to intellectual property and he has helped lead us in the right direction for our product patents. Austin made things extremely easy and painless for us. Definitely a go to for young or seasoned entrepreneurs looking to expand in their business and need assistant with anything related patent/intellectual property."
