Call us during business hours and in most cases Patent attorney Michael Feigin, Esq. or Larry Fridman, Esq. will answer the phone - you can reach us. We like direct interactions with our clients and make things as simple and easy as possible. We believe in direct human interaction and while we've now received half a dozen (and growing) buyout offers from large firms, we like our independence and find greater reward in working directly without abstraction layers. Being your own boss means that you know everything which is happening from beginning to end.
Our priority is customer service and quality work. If we believe something is not patentable, we will tell you. We have a lot of happy clients who, after we at first dissuaded them from seeking a patent application, rethought their strategies and concepts, and came back with something great.
We're big fans of the "Google method" of doing things. That is, we provide you with all the information about patents and trademarks. Take a look at our "patent guide" which walks you through the process of obtaining a patent in the United States and around the world in excruciating detail. If you prefer, take a look at our numerous issued patents in fields ranging from telecom, medical, mechanical, business method, and electrical.
We love what we do for a living - we love tossing ideas back and forth, as well as searching for, and writing about all the new technology people have to offer. Come to us with your questions on patents, trademarks, and copyrights and tell us what you have in mind; then we provide the relevant information. Our collaboration will be enjoyable and professional for both parties - as well as profitable.

The initial fee is payable on our website and is combined with the legally binding Engagement Agreement. The Engagement Agreement includes an explanation of our legal responsibility of confidentiality and elaborates on how the process of obtaining a patent or trademark proceeds.
Once you begin working with us, your invoices will be transmitted to you by e-mail with clickable buttons to send an e-check payment. If you prefer, email your check instead and we'll debit it electronically. Telephone authorizations also work to transfer money from an account already on record.
