                                        We are more than attorneys

                                        To learn about the attorneys at our law firm, click here. Although we are The Idea Attorneys®, our team is not just limited to lawyers.

                                        Our staff includes a number of patent agents, industrial designers, engineers, programmers, technical illustrators, and scientists with specialized expertise to assist our attorneys in persuasively arguing for the patentability of your idea.
                                        You never get a second chance to make a first impression on an Examiner at the Patent Office.

                                        International Patent Filing Expertise

                                        As such, It is critical that your submission to the Patent Office be done in the most complete and persuasive manner possible.
                                        We also have international foreign filing experts that can assist you with securing rights to your intellectual property outside the United States.

                                        How much is all of this going to cost?

                                        Relax.

                                        Unlike other law firms, we have moved away from the hourly-billing model and provide a fixed-fee estimate prior to starting work on your patenting matter.

                                        This way, not only are you assured first-rate expertise for your patenting matter, but you also have the peace of mind of knowing that we understand your budget and that there are no surprises in your legal fees and costs.
