I am registered and licensed to file and prosecute patent applications before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. I have a master's degree in computer science from Portland State University and 10 years of experience preparing or prosecuting patent applications in a variety of technologies. My practice is limited to preparing, filing, and prosecuting patent applications. Many services are available at a negotiated flat fee.
An initial consultation is a flat fee of $125 for the first hour payable at the time of service. An attorney fee for preparing a U.S. non-provisional application for a simple mechanical invention may be a flat fee as low as $3,000. For a more complex mechanical invention, $5,000 or perhaps more, depending on complexity. My attorney fees do not include costs, such as patent office filing fees, fees of patent illustrators, fees of patent search firms, or other out-of-pocket costs.
I work on patent applications for mechanical and computer-related inventions. By computer-related, I mean computational hardware, software, networks, mobile devices, telecommunications, semiconductor devices, electrical circuits and more.
I enjoy providing many services for a flat fee that is negotiated up front. I like doing work for a flat fee because it makes both your expenses and my income more predictable. However, if you prefer paying by the hour, I can provide my services by the hour as well.
