Employment at Gold & Rizvi, P.A.
At Gold & Rizvi, P.A., we are The Idea Attorneys®. If you want to be on our team, you must be PASSIONATE about the world of inventing. If the concept of working for a law firm focused exclusively on helping inventors achieve their dreams gives you goose bumps — read on. If you are looking for a "regular job", go find the classifieds and submit away.
In the movie, Any Given Sunday, Al Pacino played a football coach (Tony D'Amato) in a wonderful locker-room motivational speech telling his players to keep playing even when everything seems stacked against them and fight for every inch they can get.
"An inch can mean the difference between victory and defeat", pleaded Al Pacino in the movie, "and if you want to win in football or in life, you have to give it all you have for those inches."
Like a deed in real estate, a patent stakes out the scope of property defined. If an attorney claims your invention too broadly, the patent is likely to be rejected. If he drafts claims that are too narrow, you are leaving money on the table. Precision is important but so is aggressive prosecution. Our law firm is aggressive about fighting for those inches of intellectual real estate for our clients. If you want to join our team, you must share that same passion.
