According to the patent statute, any person who "invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, manufacture or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof, may obtain a patent," subject to the conditions and requirements of the law.
While you may have a brilliant idea, a patent application is only as strong as it is written. That's why it is critical - and usually a cost-saving measure - to work with an experienced and proven patent law attorney from the beginning. The Eldredge Law Firm in Fort Worth, Texas, and Denver, Colorado, has written and successfully prosecuted hundreds of international and domestic patent applications.
Obtaining a utility patent can cost $15,000 or more. Our flat-rate fees and tiered packages drastically reduce that cost without sacrificing any of the highly personalized attention we provide to all of our clients.
Expedience And The Extra Mile
Receiving approval of a patent application can take up to two years or more. Understandably, clients are anxious to submit their patent application in order to ensure that someone doesn't beat them to the market. Our firm provides unique services that accelerate the application process without compromising the quality of the application itself.
For example, Mr. Eldredge is accomplished in creating computer-aided design (CAD) drawings. This allows him to create his own CAD drawings, which are a critical component of many patent applications, within one week. This process can take as much as five weeks if the drawings are outsourced. His clients also reap tremendous savings because the CAD drawings are provided at no additional cost.
As an additional service to our clients, attorney Eldredge typically interviews the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) examiner before and during the prosecution of each patent application, a step that few patent lawyers take. This expedites the approval process by providing ample opportunities to resolve any objections.
