- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
As a Patent Agent I have the same intellectual property knowledge as an attorney because we pass the same registration examination. The difference is I do not have the overhead of an attorney and can therefore quote better pricing while providing an excellent service of searching, writing and filing your patent application. I also keep track of your patent with my docketing system throughout the life of your patent.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to have a nice conversation, get a feel for your project and how far along it is. I can then determine if you need a search, need to develop your idea more, prior to filing, or if you are ready to write and file!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have passed a 6 hour bar exam with the United States patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). I have a Bachelor degree in Biology, but have worked for over 17 years in the software arts, mechanical, telecommunications, etc.. There is not much that is not in my wheelhouse. Chemistry! Chemistry is not in my wheelhouse, lol.
