Hi, does anyone have a recommendation for a good, fair priced patent attorney. I have a very simple, small product that I’d like to patent. Thanks!
Before you spend any money on a patent attorney, I strongly recommend that you read “Patent It Yourself” by David Pressman (NOLO Press). It’s thorough and easy to read and it’s probably available at your local library or you can buy it on-line.
If you don’t already know,obtaining a patent can be very expensive, not matter how small or simple the invention. Every time you talk to your lawyer, the (money) meter will Yoube running. Reading this book will help you understand the process, make you better prepared and allow you to make much best use of your attorney’s time and your money.
Finally, if your product is a physical invention, go with an attorney with an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering. He/she will be best able to understand the essence of your physical product and write the best patent for you.
