You got an Office Action from
The Patent Office.

Oh, no. What does this mean?

Does it mean your invention is dead in the water?
Maybe you thought your idea had wings, but now you wonder: “Was I wrong?”
Should you just let the idea go?

But wait a minute.

Is it possible the Patent Office examiner could be wrong? Do they truly understand what’s unique about your invention?

Is there any way to change their mind?

Our “Second Opinion” Strategic Office Action Review is for you, and it’s performed by former examiners from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

My name is John Rizvi. I’ve been a patent attorney for over 25 years and have been an Adjunct Professor of Patent Law for the past 18 years. People call me, and my law firm, The Patent Professor®. I understand that Office Actions can be frustrating and bewildering.

  • Maybe you’re tired of paying an hourly fee to an attorney who says they’ll “try” to overcome the examiner’s rejections, and you’re losing confidence in that attorney.
  • Maybe you filed your own patent application. Now, you received an Office Action and you don’t know what to do with it.
  • Or maybe someone told you that your Office Action says, “Buddy, you’ll never get this patent,” but you suspect they’re wrong.

I’m proud and excited to offer you the opportunity to

Have my team of Patent Attorneys and former Patent Office Examiners Analyze Your Office Action.

At The Patent Professor ®, our team includes four former examiners from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

What do these former USPTO examiners do at The Patent Professor®?

They perform strategic reviews of Office Actions and give their recommendations for next steps, and help our attorneys overcome examiner rejections

It’s an amazing advantage. It almost seems unfair!

Who else but former Patent Office Examiners could have better insight into what your examiner wants and how they can be persuaded to issue your patent?

It’s almost like having a physics professor for the course you are taking tutor you for the exam. Or knowing someone in the HR department of the company you want to work for.

They say you should fight fire with fire.

Our in-house former examiners have “switched sides.” They don’t work at the U.S. Patent Office anymore and REJECT patent applications.

Instead, they help The Patent Professor®’s clients overcome Office Action rejections.

Put that power in your corner.

With our "Second Opinion" Strategic Office Action Review, our team and a former USPTO patent examiner will.

How can our “Second Opinion” Strategic Office Action Review help YOU?

You already have a patent attorney, but they’re struggling to overcome the examiner’s rejections.

For the past 18 years, I have served as an adjunct professor at Nova Southeastern University Law School teaching patent, trademark, and copyright law to graduating law students.

I perfected my craft at Fish & Neave (now Rogers & Wells), one of the most prestigious and revered patent law firms in the world, which counted among its distinguished list of inventor clients Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, the Wright Brothers and Henry Ford. However, I eventually tired of performing work for large, multi-national companies and formed my own firm so I could work directly with inventors and start-up entrepreneurs to help them protect their ideas.

At The Patent Professor®, I’ve watched my clients start with nothing but an idea and take their invention all the way through the successful launch of their product, often generating millions in revenue.

You might have seen one of my two TED Talks, which were featured in a listing of the “Top 10 TED Talks for Inventors” in Inventor’s Digest magazine.

I am also the author of two books, Escaping the Gray and Think and Grow Rich for Inventors. I am humbled that Think and Grow Rich for Inventors was endorsed by Kevin Harrington, one of the original “sharks” on the hit TV show Shark Tank and the inventor of the informercial.
