Service Description

I became a patent agent to help inventors navigate the patent process without being overwhelmed by information and expense.

Mission
For any inventor looking to apply for a patent, it is imperative to have proof of the projectís originality, every step of the way. Only a registered patent agent or attorney can advise the inventor on this process and associated legal matters.

Description
A patent agent is cheaper than a patent lawyer, and that may be one reason to employ one if your budget is tight. I can help you with the initial search to see whether your invention is new in a legal sense and advise you on whether it is viable for a patent application. I will also be able to advise you on whether you should to apply for a patent or not - this process is not suitable for every innovation or business. I will also be able to represent you through the application by preparing and prosecuting at the USPTO.

So fFeel free to inquire about your ideas as I intend to offer genuine guidance to the patent process for inventors.

An initial utility determination for each idea will be provided at no cost.

All communication is client confidential.

I hope to hear from you soon.
