Protect Your Invention by Consulting a Patent Attorney.


Retaining a Federally-Registered Patent Attorney.
Patent law in the United States is federal law. Federally-registered Patent Attorneys are licensed to prosecute patent applications of inventors located in Decatur, before the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

During the application process, the federal government will not provide assistance to a patent applicant. In fact, the United States Patent and Trademark Office strongly advises patent applicants to contact a registered patent attorney or a patent agent.

A federally-registered Patent Attorney can assist in:

  • Performing a patent search
  • Drafting the patent application
  • Conducting interviews with a patent Examiner
  • Handling appeals to the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences
  • Correcting an issued patent
  • Litigating in case of infringement

Obtaining a Patent in the United States.
A U.S. patent grants a patent owner the right to exclude others from making, using, selling, or distributing the patented invention without permission, for a period of 14-20 years. During this time period, the patent owner can generate revenue through licensing or sale.
