The patent process is quite complex, requiring inventors to have extensive knowledge about US Patent Law. While you are not required to have a lawyer. However, when an inventor does not have experience getting a patent for inventions, the United States and Patent Office (USPTO) strongly recommend that they seek the help of an attorney.
The Law Office of Jerry Joseph, PLC will examine and review your idea, identify which type of protection you may need, and provide you with a custom plan. Ultimately, the goal is to protect and cost-effectively prototype your idea.
Conversely, it may not make sense for you to get a patent for your invention at this time. As much as you may not be happy to hear this news, a good lawyer will always watch their clients’ back and best interest. Above all saving money is better advice.
The first thing before you hire a Patent Attorney is a consultation. You should consider asking some of these questions to see if they are properly qualified to represent you.
One thing is certain, trademarks are not easy, furthermore, nor are the documents required to register one. Just ask anyone who’s ever dealt with the USPTO or failed to register a trademark and as a result, failed because their examiner found some ridiculous issue with their application.
Under these circumstances, an experienced trademark attorney would be a wise investment.
Do you know what’s even more challenging than dealing with a bunch of nitpicky subjective rules? When you try to register your mark while also fending off threats from counterfeiters who want your goodwill and a good reputation for themselves. You are particularly happy your attorney knows what he’s doing and you can bet that due to the fact you are paying for protection, your attorney is going to put a massive dent in whatever plans they have with your intellectual property.
What about the fear of being new to trademarks and intellectual property, or if you’ve just never had the means to deal with them before? You might not realize how easy it is to save yourself a lot of time, money, and stress whenever you work with an attorney.
Due to the fact that a trademark is often a company’s most valuable asset and requires equally important constant attention.
First thing, before you hire a trademark attorney, consider asking some of these questions to see if they are properly qualified to represent you.

Having a lawyer is often the difference between success and failure. A good intellectual property lawyer is priceless. Without one, you’re basically out in the cold on your own. I have seen so much go wrong for clients’ businesses and even personal finances apart from the company.
