My law firm is unlike any other law firm you have worked with before.

Here, we don’t have hourly billing. Instead, I’ll give you a simple flat fee for your patent.

If you have come up with an invention that you believe is unique and valuable, it is strongly suggested that you file a patent to protect your ideas from being reproduced. Filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office can be a complicated process, but the reward of navigating the application can be extremely rewarding when you are able to pursue your invention without worrying about competitors copying you. Luckily, there are many professionals in the country who are experienced in patent law and are available to help.

A patent is a legal right for an individual or company to exclusively pursue an invention or design for a set period of time. During the time that a patent is active, no other party is able to replicate the protected aspects of the patent, giving the inventor a period of time to focus on development without fear of someone copying their intellectual property. Patents were put into place in the United States to encourage inventors and creators to pursue unique ideas without the threat of losing their idea or potential success to another party.

If you’re considering a patent, there are a few things you should know. For one, you should realize that there is a lengthy wait for the patent process. As of June of 2019, there were 552,359 unexamined patent applications waiting at the USPTO. It took an average of 16.2 months for applicants to receive the first action on their application.

To achieve the final results, individuals had a wait time of more than 24 months. The patent process is not easy, and it’s not quick. Fortunately, submitting your application gets your invention in patent-pending status. A provisional patent is another option if you need more time to finalize your invention.

In North American, there were 642,000 patent applications in 2017. Those patents came from a variety of industries. Sadly, not all of those patents were approved. Some are still waiting on the decision, while others were denied. 

If you’re overwhelmed by the wait and the overall process, you should know that you’re not alone. A patent attorney can handle your paperwork. Additionally, they know how to get you results in the quickest possible way. Before you get started on the process, you should learn more about what to expect and how a lawyer can help.


A patent attorney is a legal professional who focuses on filing, maintaining, and protecting patents. There are a variety of reasons that you would benefit from the help of a patent attorney.


A patent protects you from a variety of things. First, it protects you from fearing that your invention will be replicated by someone else while you are working on funding, manufacturing, production, sales, or anything else you need to put in place to benefit from your work. Patents are designed to protect inventors from seeing their novel creation be taken to market by someone else unfairly. Oftentimes, the “first to market” has an enormous advantage, and this could be very detrimental to the inventor.

Secondly, your patent protects you from entering the market, only to see your invention be obscured in a variety of knock-offs that diminish your brand and unique value. If you release a unique invention into the market, and it is received extremely well but is then buried in a crowd of lower-quality knockoffs, you are suddenly left competing for attention while also trying to deliver a quality product that you believe in.


If you have an idea or invention that you believe is unique and novel, read FAQ about patents in US and consult with The Patent Professor today. Your intellectual property is too valuable to risk being lost to the market, and with professional guidance, you can get the protection you need to advance your ideas.
