Protect Your Intellectual Property with a Patent Attorney!
It is no secret that people steal other people’s ideas in order to strike it rich. Some people think it’s acceptable to make money off of the work or inventions of others. With a patent attorney, you have legal recourse against those who use your inventions for their own profit.
A patent attorney is an expert in the field of patent law, and will help you file a patent for your invention or for your idea. A patent attorney is the only type of attorney who can represent clients before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. To this end, Patent Attorneys must have a scientific degree (such as computer science or engineering, for example) before attending an accredited law school. Upon graduation, a patent attorney must pass all the examinations of an ordinary attorney and then sit before the United States Patent and Trademark Office and pass a rigorous examination. As such, patent attorneys are highly specialized and are considered among the elite of the legal community. It is for this reason that a patent attorney is uniquely qualified to answer all of your questions regarding patenting your invention or idea, and can interpret the law that pertains to patents to ensure you receive appropriate legal protection. Daniel Law Offices, P.A. offers highly-qualified patent attorneys who can assist with filing patent applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Our primary office is located in Central Florida and we serve clients throughout the United States Canada and Europe.
The initial step in the process of obtaining a patent is to carry out a search to establish if your idea is unique and original. It is possible to conduct the search yourself by going to the USPTO website, but a good patent attorney can and will perform a more thorough job of conducting the search and will also save you time and aggravation. At Daniel Law Offices, you are certain to obtain the services of a top patent attorney.
Unlike many law firms that only cater to “BIG” clients, Daniel Law Offices has a division that caters specifically to the needs of small businesses and first-time inventors. Whether a client needs to patent an invention or obtain a U.S. Trademark, the experienced patent attorneys at Daniel Law Offices will provide expert guidance every step of the way.
The next step after performing a search is to apply for a patent. There are three types of patents: plant, design and utility. Plant patents pertain to the creation of new and unique types of plant species (i.e. roses and petunias, for example). If you are chiefly concerned about the look or appearance of your invention or idea, but not the function, then you should choose the design patent. If you are more concerned about how the invention will function, then you will need to apply for a utility patent. You must also consider the length of time your inventions will be protected: a utility patent will protect you for 20 years, while a design patent lasts for 14 years.
Your options can be best explained by a qualified patent attorney. The patent attorneys at Daniel Law Offices will detail the proper steps you will need to take when you are applying for a patent for your invention or idea.
It can be frustrating for any inventor who has spent a lot of time, money and effort in order to come up with new ideas for products and gone through all the necessary steps to patent them to have someone swoop in and start raking in cash by simply mimicking the patented idea – protect your intellectual property! With a Daniel Law Offices patent attorney, your inventions will be well-protected.
