Your patent attorney should be the first person you speak to about your idea. And no, we're not here to steal your idea - we're registered patent attorneys and we're here to help protect your idea.
After spending time with you and helping you select the best patent package for your requirements, we will do a detailed technical write up along with technical drawings for your invention typically within a couple of weeks after receiving the information and a down-payment.
There is an immense amount of work involved and it can take days, sometimes weeks to get the invention and the drawings just right. It's important that you get a patent attorney to help with this, because statistics show that less than 0.5% of patents self-filed by inventors ever get granted. Your idea is important, so it's worth spending extra to get our services.
It takes 8-12 years on average to qualify as a patent attorney and all patent attorneys have engineering or science degrees as well as legal qualifications, backed up by years of intense training. Writing a patent is part science, part art, and much like heart surgery, it's best left to the professionals.
Our pricing starts at $4500 for a provisional patent application, which lasts for 12 months, and is usually the first step in the patenting process and allows you the opportunity to get feedback on your idea and fine tune it before a "complete" application.
If you don't want the hassle of doing a patent availability search yourself, then we can do that and write you a report of your prospects of success, with pricing starting from $3500.
If you feel that the invention is ready to go right from the start, then we can write and file a so-called "complete" patent application for you and skip the provisional stage. This is more expensive and we are one of very few patent firms in the country that quotes a fixed price for getting your idea into a granted patent (which can easily take 2-4 or more years, given the delays at the patent office and depending on how many times we have to argue with the patent examiner).
