Some are former examiners, some are engineers with a long history of helping inventors obtain mechanical or electrical patents.  Some of us specialize in computer or software-related innovations.  Whatever your field, we likely will have someone in our network who specializes in writing and prosecuting applications to help you.  Click on the practitioners below to get a feel for who we are and how we work.  If you would like to start a patent application, and have a preferred practitioner in mind, let us know and we'll check their schedule and let you know when that practitioner can start work on your project.
