If You Want To Avoid Getting Sued, Start Reading Here.

Imagine getting a letter in the mail one day. The letter alleges that your company is infringing someone else’s patent. It might be a “cease and desist letter” or a complaint naming you as a defendant.

Chances are, your business is dead. At the very least, your finances are about to take a major hit. The average cost of litigating a patent is over $100,000 per month. Even challenging the patent in a post-grant proceeding typically costs $250,000. If you don’t have that kind of money, you can’t even afford to defend yourself. If you do, there went your budget.

And that’s if you win.

What happens if you lose?

What happens if you win, and they appeal?

All because of a patent that you didn’t know about, or you didn’t think was a threat.

You can avoid all of this.

I work to help you avoid accidently infringing someone’s patent. As a patent attorney, I have hands-on experience providing patent freedom to operate analysis to businesses. If you’re early in the development process, I can work with you to just examine the patents and patent applications that you are worried about. When you are ready to commercialize, we can search and analyze the patents of every country that you want to make or sell your product or service in. I can also work to help you design around any threatening patents we find.

Why risk a patent lawsuit that could cost you your job or your business?

While I don’t know if my services are a good fit for your unique situation, why don’t you contact me to see if I can bring some value to what you are doing?

If You Want To Patent An Invention, Start Reading Here.

Over 97% of Patents Are Worthless!

BUT the right ONE can be worth millions of dollars per year to your business.

The next time that you think about your invention and the money that you plan to make with it, this about this: I have met executives who told me that they were happily attending to business when they saw a product on the market that was almost EXACTLY like theirs. Imagine the shock of these executives when they consulted with their patent attorney only to find out that this competitor changed one little thing and designed around a patent they paid thousands of dollars for! Yes, your competitor is eating your market share with an innovation they stole from you!

They didn’t spend money on research and development. They didn’t risk wasting money on a dead-end project. They didn’t spend money developing the market for an innovative product or service. You and your business earned your success, and they are stealing it right out from under your nose.

It’s not fair, but it is exactly what happens when you hire a patent attorney who is more interested in lining his own pockets than drafting a patent that will protect your invention and your profits. I know because I have been on both sides.

I have helped large corporations design around the poorly written patents of large and small businesses. I have also had to tell executives and in-house counsel that the overpriced patent they got from a fancy downtown law firm wasn’t worth the paper it was written on. As soon as some large law firms realize that you can’t tell a good patent from a bad one OR that you don’t have time to review the details of every patent application, they know they can write something quickly that looks good but is completely ineffective. Then they can pocket the savings.

You’ll always have to defend your business against ruthless competitors. Should you have to defend your business against a lazy, greedy patent attorney?

I believe that I may have the solution that you need.

As a Houston patent attorney running a virtual patent law firm, I cut over 50% of the overhead. This business model allows me to spend MORE TIME applying my Ph.D. in chemistry and over seven years of patent law experience to expertly drafting and handling your patent application. I can take more time to work with your business and your inventors to draft a patent application that will actually protect your invention and your profits. I cannot promise you that the patent application that we draft will protect your invention or even issue as a patent.

Here is what I can do for you:

  • To save you time and frustration, I will always return your phone calls and emails in a timely, professional manner.
  • I will speak to you in plain English and give you my candid advice so that you know what is really going on with your patent applications.
  • I work with the inventors, learn about their invention, and guide them through the patent drafting process, so you don’t have to waste time figuring out the technology or dealing with angry, confused inventors.
  • To save you embarrassment and irritation, I can provide you with flat fees and do not exceed estimates in advance.
  • I will work with you to draft patent applications and responses right the first time so that I do the work instead of you.

Why risk having your invention and profits stolen? Why get a patent from a large law firm that doesn’t care about you or your business?

While I don’t know if my services are a good fit for your unique situation, why don’t you contact me to see if I can bring some value to what you are doing?

To Save Your Patent Application, Start Reading Here.

A client transferred a patent application to me that was written by another firm. I asked why they were unhappy with the service they had been getting from such a large, well-known law firm. They said the costs were getting out of hand. Plus, the technology was valuable and innovative. They couldn’t understand why they hadn’t gotten a patent yet.

That didn’t surprise me. Runaway bills and bad customer service are rampant in patent law. But when I looked at the file, I couldn’t believe my eyes! This was their 10th office action!

Something was clearly wrong. Most clients hit the panic button at four or five office actions, as they should. What was going on here? I read the application and the claims. They seemed fine. Then I started to read the reference that was cited in the prior art rejections.

What I saw left me stunned!

The prior art was verbatim identical to the patent application. We’re talking cut and paste. The previous patent attorney should have caught this in minutes and warned the client that they were wasting their money. Apparently, they didn’t. It cost the client an additional 4 or 5 office actions, which probably cost more than $10,000 in attorney service fees.

You might think that this is an isolated incident, but I have personally seen this EXACT issue over half a dozen times. This doesn’t just happen to startups and solo entrepreneurs. I have seen this happen to post-IPO pharmaceutical companies that had a chief legal officer or general counsel reviewing the work. I have seen this happen to Fortune 100 chemical companies that had an army of in-house patent attorneys.

Worse, I have lost track of how many badly drafted patent applications I have seen.

Once some large law firm patent attorneys realize that you can’t tell a good patent application from a bad one OR that you don’t have time to review the details of every patent application, they know they can write something quickly that looks good but is completely ineffective. Then they can pocket the savings.

If that wasn’t bad enough, it’s much harder to get a patent issued from a poorly written patent application. That means that you end up paying the patent attorney much more to get the patent application allowed.

The result is usually the same. You get stuck with high bills and weak patents while some big law patent attorney laughs at you all the way to the bank.

Chances are you hired a patent attorney to protect your business from ruthless competitors and careless examiners. But who will protect you from the greed and laziness of a big law firm patent attorney?

How would you like to hire an experienced patent attorney without paying for a fancy office? As a Houston patent attorney running a virtual patent law firm, I cut over 50% of the overhead. This business model allows me to spend MORE TIME applying my Ph.D. in chemistry and over seven years of patent law experience to expertly handling your patent application. I cannot guarantee a result, but here is what I can do for you:

  • I will read your patent application and its file history.
  • Then I will use my over seven years of patent law experience to draft the best claims and arguments that I can based on your patent application.
  • I can also call the examiner for an interview to determine which strategy is most likely to get your patent application issued as a patent.
  • I will always talk to you in plain English and give you practical strategic advice so that you can make informed business decisions.

Can you risk your patent application never getting issued? Can you afford to throw away good money?

While I don’t know if my services are a good fit for your unique situation, why don’t you contact me to see if I can bring some value to what you are doing?
