Professional Advice and Quick Response
Very pleased with the advice given and the professional way Boris Davis of LegalHoop dealt with our trademark application. Responses were quick and the whole process was very straight forward. Add to that LegalHoop's charges for their work are very good. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services. Thank you Boris!

While dealing with my busy work schedule and the need to work at odd hours, with an approaching USPTO deadline due to my procrastination, and with the fact that I have little familiarity with the patent and trademark world, Boris was spectacularly patient, responsive, and clear. Thank you.

Should I Request A Patent Search?

It's the first step before a patent application! First, you learn how patentable your invention may be.

If it's not very patentable, don't waste time and money on a patent application. Second, it may help you increase your patentability.

By seeing what is similar, you can improve your invention around other existing inventions and increase patentability.
