Attorney Review

"Excellent attorney. Very capable and knowledgeable about the US patent process. Attorney helped us file our first patent application on budget and very quickly. Attorney also understands software technology which was a huge benefit as he was able to easily understand the invention and translate a few flow diagrams to a thorough patent application. Very impressed with responsiveness and attention to detail. Added value was some original ideas based upon the invention which could help us in the future. I can highly recommend this attorney and will continue to use for any of our future patent applications."
