Bill is an amazing lawyer and a tremendous asset to have representing you. The first visit he gave me all of the data I needed to fully understand the patent process, and to understand why a competent patent lawyer is highly advisable. He went on to also give me a few useful tips and a list of contacts to help my new small start-up succeed.
I was highly impressed and used him throughout the process. He did a good job on the patent search. But his follow-on effort writing up the patent application was amazing. He gave painstaking attention to detail covering all of my design documentation, developing a technically concise and very complete patent application. Consideration was made for all potential design variations. The patent justification section was detailed.
I seriously don't believe using any other lawyer I would have had the resulting substantial & detailed claim section that he produced: I have high confidence that he fully covered all aspects of my invention to maximize the protections that could be afforded me under patent law.
He was very personable and easy to work with throughout the whole process.

I've retained Bill for utility and design patent as well as trademark services. In my experience Bill took the time to clearly understand the product in detail, clearly addressed questions and concerns and provided an excellent set of deliverables on time, every time. I greatly appreciate the guidance, insight and assistance Bill has provided to me in these matters. Very highly recommended.
