Years in Business
I am impressed with the transformations produced yesterday! You brought joy and tranquility to this inventor’s being. We have something great here. Now we must engage in the process. – RK
I cannot imagine making the concept and advantage more clear than your examples do. Very nice description….. I want you to know how much I appreciate your extra efforts and diligence in trying both to fully understand the invention and to communicate it clearly to the PTO. – BB
I have nothing but great things to say about this company. They helped me secure my patent and also my trademark in a professional and timely manner. These people know their business and do it very well! – NM
Every year thousands of Independent Inventors, like yourself, are targeted by unscrupulous invention promotion, marketing and licensing firms. These firms take advantage of an inventor’s enthusiasm for their product. They not only solicit inventors with exaggerated promises to obtain valuable patents but they make false claims about the potential market success of those inventions. These firms provide you with basic market research at a large fee and ultimately obtaining an overly narrow or useless patent that is worthless in the marketplace. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Please read this brochure published by the USPTO!
