Cliff Hyra is exactly what we needed in a patent attorney. As a small business, creating our first patent, we wanted an attorney we could work closely with, feel confident in and to know the costs involved.
Cliff is truly a professional and understands the special needs of working with an inventor. We were very impressed with his technical ability, demonstrated by his suggestions and understanding of our invention. He always provided clear, knowledgeable and timely responses to our relentless questions, which is exactly what you need when preparing a patent.
Cliff has fixed pricing for most services allowing us to know what to budget for cost, without the fear of enormous cost overruns. With his pricing, it has made getting a patent within reach for any inventor.
In retrospect, I can't imagine having done it differently. Working with Cliff has been nothing short of excellent in every way. We will continue to use Cliff Hyra on our current and all future patent issues. I highly recommend Cliff Hyra for all your IP needs.

Intellectual Property Services you can count on!
Cliff is now our only source for all IP services. He is the 3rd lawyer we have dealt with in this subject matter. Additionally, over the past 2 years we have probably spoken or obtained quotes from at least another 4 or 5 and Cliff is simply the best to deal and speak with.
All I can say is that he has an uncanny way of getting into my head and interpreting my thoughts the way I would like to say them. His attention to detail and the way he adds his own additional comments are invaluable.
I really like Cliff and he has never steered us wrong yet. He is currently managing 2 Utility Patent applications as well as a Design Patent and 3 Trademarks for us.
Now he’s Kick’n It!!!
