We offer the high quality attorney-client representation before the US Patent and Trademark Office that you need. Patent Office proceedings are often adversarial and patent examiners generally assume that applicants are represented by a competent patent attorney. The USPTO strongly recommends that all patent applicants be represented by a patent attorney. It must be understood that a patent may be a valuable piece of intellectual property or it may be a worthless document depending on how it is drafted and prosecuted.
