A: Due to international law, a European patent provides no enforceable right in the United States. To obtain patent protection for a product sold in the United States requires a patent issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The best recommendations usually come from people you already work with and trust. My suggestion would be to ask your European patent attorney for American colleagues that they would trust to help you. They are likely to give you a strong recommendation, because their reputation in your eyes is at stake.
