I am a registered patent attorney in private practice in Bend, Oregon. I am admitted to practice in Washington, Oregon and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. I offer free initial telephone consultation and one hour initial consultation for a $100 flat fee. I have a Preeminent Rating from Martindale.com, their highest rating.
I focus most of my practice on drafting and prosecuting patent applications and to other intellectual property matters, such as trademarks. I work with computer, software, electrical, telecommunications, mechanical and other technologies. I do most of my work on a flat fee which is negotiated up front. While, I generally do not handle litigation matters, I will consult on intellectual property litigation issues. My regular website is at www.matapatentlaw.com.

I also work on contract with Constellation Law Group, PLLC, prosecuting computer-related US. patent applications for the intellecual property company Intellectual Ventures. My bio on their website can be accessed at http://www.constellationlaw.com/Attorneys/Mata/.
I graduated summa cum laude and served as an editor of the law review at the University of Santa Clara School of Law. I also have an M.S. in computer science (3.9 GPA) from Portland State University. My computer science advisor has described me as among the top 2 percent of graduate students he has taught in terms of ability to understand and express the concepts of computer science.

I endorse Jose Mata. We worked together on multiple cases in both Oregon and California. His insight, detailed analysis, and reasoning make him a great advocate for his client. While working together, I relied heavily on his advice regarding how and when to use experts in litigation. I have found that Mr. Mata represents his clients well whether in court or in written briefs and highly recommend his services.
