Quality patent attorney
Daniel worked on our not-so-easy non-provisional software patent. He dove in and immersed himself in our claims section. He was creative in offering ways to improve our spec and comprehensive in suggesting ways to make our already robust provisional patent even stronger in the non-provisional phase. Consider yourself fortunate if you have Daniel working on your project.
