Protecting Your Business, Your Inventions, & Your Name


Patent Search & Evaluation


Patent Application


Patent Approval


Trademark Registration

A Google search won’t tell you for certain if your idea exists. We will conduct a thorough search at the United States Patent Office to find similar inventions that came before yours, which is known as the “prior art”. After searching for prior art we will advise you whether your invention is patentable in light of previous inventions.  This can be critical for making a good decision about whether to proceed further. We understand that you’re not paying us for hype, you need the straight truth to take the right steps.

Patent Evaluation Fee Includes:

  1. Initial patent discovery meeting.
  2. “Prior art” research conducted at the USPTO.
  3. Review and consultation regarding the results of prior art research.
  4. Consultation to discuss the possibility of applying for & obtaining your patent.

The drafting of your patent application is the most critical step. How your patent is written can be the difference between owning your idea and losing everything to a competitor. With all the technology, biotech, pharmaceutical, telecom, wireless and other science-related disciplines that make up our economy today, the technical knowledge and experience that must go into writing your patent application is critical to obtaining the right results.

Do NOT attempt this on your own

A typical patent application can be 20, 30, even 40 pages in length. Writing a patent application is the most critical, the most technical, and requires the most skill of anything in this entire process. We’ve applied for and obtained over 1800 patents, so we know what it takes to get a patent that is perfectly appropriate for what you need.

If the review by the patent examiner is favorable, you’ll be issued what’s known as a “notice of allowance”, which tells you that you’ve been approved for a patent. Once you pay certain issuance fees, the patent will be granted. Once the patent is issued, you have the right to exclude other people from making, using, or selling your invention within the United States. And this is a right that you can keep for yourself, sell to someone else, or license to a company who wants to make that product.

Benefits of Obtaining Your Patent

  • Prevent theft of invention
  • Reduce competition
  • Higher profit margins
  • Encourage settlements
  • Expand market share

Imagine that you are about to launch a product. You’ve already patented it, but now you’ve come up with a clever name for the product. You’ve built a website with the product name that describes the product. You’ve come up with a logo that is really unique and distinctly shows what your product is all about. What you want to do is protect that name and that logo with a trademark as you prepare to launch your product.

Your patent protects the underlying idea for your product, but the trademark will protect your business name and logo that distinguish you from your competition. Patents are useful for protecting the functional features of the item, when there’s something distinctive about the product itself. Trademarks are useful when what we’re dealing with is the branding of your product. The purpose of Trademark law is to protect consumer expectations and prevent consumer confusion.

How Do I Get A Trademark?

In order to obtain a federally registered trademark, you need to apply at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Names, logos, and slogans for your product or service can be protected with a trademark. Before applying however, you’ll want us to research your mark first to see if other companies have conflicting marks that might prevent you from obtaining your trademark.

It's About You...Your Ideas...Your Goals.

What we do to help you should be a function of whatever it is that you are out to accomplish in the world with your idea. If someone sets out to just get you a patent, without understanding your goals, it’s quite likely you will spend a lot of money and still not get what you need for you and your business. That’s why we want to understand your goals from the very beginning – so that we can make sure we are headed in the right direction from the start.

I want people to know that you really went to bat for me when it mattered most. While most of the patents you got for me went through on the first shot, for those that didn’t: you fought hard to get them approved. As a result, my products sell around the world, and generate millions. You are the best!

– Lou Sardo

“Rich Goldstein has deep experience helping inventors get the patents they need, and avoiding the ones they do not.”

– Neil Milton, author of Intellectual Property Law for Dummies

“My first patented invention helped me grow a single product company into a company with an entire line of hair accessories and other beauty products. In the course of enforcing my patent rights against competitors, other intellectual patent attorneys have complimented on how broad my patent application was written.”

Mia Minnelli Kaminski, Founder and CEO of The Tonytail Company, Inc

“Your service, response, and dedication, made the filing process easy for me. Both patents you recorded for me seemed to have gone smoothly, and when there was a need, you solved the problem. Thanks to your dedication my patent #6612615, is protected, and my business is growing safely.”

Eldad Dimand, CEO of Trilift
