Peace of mind, professionalism and assurance for best results. I have had a very satisfying experience with Jerry. Other than being attentive to the many detailed questions related to my trademark request, he has gone above and beyond to provide assurance and due diligence of my complicated situation. He could have charged me for the additional complexity nature of my case but he did not. Thank you, Jerry!

But most importantly, he is honest about setting you up for the most success with your patent . Not only are his rates very reasonable, but the delivery of the work is timely and exceeded my expectation. If you are looking for a patent attorney, look no further!!!!

Amazing attorney who really understands what inventors and entrepreneurs go through. With his background in manufacturing, he is knowledgeable and the perfect resource for anybody looking to patent their invention or defend themselves against claims of patent infringement. I would highly recommend him to any person dealing with IP concerns..

Our Vision

Inventors, entrepreneurs, and creatives face unique problems. Most people never think about the headaches and frustrations in Intellectual Property law; those frustrations can be overwhelming. Many people give up before they ever start. I started this firm to fix that.


We use a flat-fee billing policy so that clients feel confident knowing that they will not be surprised by unexpected expenses. I demand that each client be provided with a level of care as if it were my patent application. I will even turn inventors away from filing patent applications if their ideas are not ready to be filed.


My firm and I dedicate ourselves to providing real-world, honest advice to help inventors. Our goal is to protect and prototype their ideas in the most cost-effective way possible.

What Makes Our Firm Different

The Intellectual Property Attorney you hire to represent you and your business is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.


These are the values that guide this firm:

  • End To End Support Services: We can connect our clients with anything from engineering and manufacturing advice to market testing and distribution, service far beyond a traditional intellectual property law firm.
  • Friendly, approachable attorneys: The days of the stuffy lawyer talking down to you and charging you by the hour are long gone. Let’s talk more like old friends. We are inventors and entrepreneurs just like you.
  • We don’t make you pay a fortune: Flat Rate billing is a feature of this law firm. Our philosophy is to make intellectual property services affordable and effective. It should not cost you $15k-$20k to get started with your idea. You can start today for a deposit of $275.

From the principal attorney

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.
