Q: Hey would like to get in touch with a IP Lawyer? I want to get this Patent
A: You definitely came to the right place. Lots of IP attorneys here. Best to pick an IP attorney with experience handling technology related to the patent you are interested in getting.
A: The way a client picks a patent attorney (or patent agent, another option for having someone file a patent application for a client) can vary. Using a website like Justia or Google works. Or, the client can Google “patent practitioner,” click on the USPTO website for registered attorneys/agents, and search that way. There are a wide variety of patent attorneys and law firms. Some patent attorneys have a few corporate clients, and submit multiple applications per year for the same client. Other patent attorneys tend to have a practice filing applications for local solo inventors. Most patent attorneys, either way, will take your phone call. Also, since patent applications are submitted to the federal government, a patent attorney from any state can file an application for a client, so if a client lives in one state the client does not necessarily need to use a patent attorney from their state, but can pick from attorneys from any state. If you call a patent attorney, depending on the attorney, they will give a quote and also let you know if their policy is to give a free consultation or not. Calling a few attorneys/offices will give a feel for the initial steps of hiring an attorney.
