Professor John Rizvi is a Board Certified Patent Attorney, Adjunct Professor of law, and recognized speaker in the field of intellectual property. He has over 20 years of experience in patent and trademark law and is one of the first group of attorneys ever to be Board Certified as an expert in this field.

He is a recognized TED Talker with 2 of his talks featured last year in Inventor’s Digest in a listing of the “top 10 TED Talks for Inventors”. His books "Escaping the Gray" and "Think and Grow Rich for Inventors" are international best sellers and have won critical acclaim including an endorsement from Kevin Harrington, one of the original sharks on the hit TV show - Shark Tank, responsible for the successful launch of overs resulting in more than $5 billion in sales worldwide.

Professor Rizvi has been interviewed by ABC, CBS, The American Lawyer, CTV, and The Business Journal, and he perfected his craft at one of the most prestigious and revered patent law firms in the world - a firm that counts Bell, Edison, the Wright Brothers and Ford among its distinguished list of famous inventor clients.

Eventually, he grew tired of corporate patent work for large multi-national companies and formed his own law firm 18 years ago so that he could work directly with inventors and start-up entrepreneurs in helping them protect their ideas.

In his own practice, he has seen his clients start with nothing but an idea and take their invention all the way through to the successful launch of their product often generating millions in revenues from the sale or licensing of their patents.

Patent Help
He really knows patent law and was not afraid to tell me like it is. With patent law it is not always who is right or first; so you need a good lawyer to keep you from the many pitfalls. I highly recommend John and the firm.

Great Patent Attorney
John Rizvi is a great patent attorney. When you work with him, you can appreciate his knowledge and passion with working with inventors and protecting their intellectual property. One thing I also appreciated about John was how he was able to write the patent in such a way to make sure that the patent didn't get in the way of the invention process. This is good because as you work through the invention phase, its hard to say were the discovery will take you. New discovery may fall outside the patent. However, as the patent was written it allowed for some wriggle room. He has a great team and his team was nice and cordial when I was working with them to get the patent done. He has a great book called "Escaping the Gray." He sent this book to me once I became his client. When I started reading that book it was hard for me to put it down until I finished it. When I feel like I need some motivation, I think back on some of the exerts of that book of his own life experiences and it helps me keep trudging forward. He wrote that book for entrepreneurs. And his own experience of walking off the deep end and taking that big risk and how he had to cope with fear to help him move forward. Also from reading the book, he helps us inventors know that he knows how important our idea is to us, and how escaping the gray and transforming from inventor to entrepreneur is a journey well worth it!

Highly Recommend
My initial communication with John Rizvi’s office and staff was an introduction to what would manifest. From start to file, each phase and conversation was clear, upfront, and honest. Timelines, meetings and responses were kept and consistent. John, along with Noah, Ana, Giovanni and all displayed efficiency in their department of skill. The patent process was clean and thorough, allowing for ultimate comfort throughout. I’d absolutely recommend to anyone hoping to patent their idea(s).

This is an real review from a existing client with granted and pending patents. John Rizvi has been stellar when assisting with my ideas. What I love most about him is his honesty. There has been several occasions where he has given advice to me when it does not financially benefit him. I appreciate having a resource that I can count on when it matters the most. Intellectual property is tricky has many layers, you need someone with experience and knowledge to help navigate the waters.

The BEST There Is!
I began working with the Rizvi Team in mid January. In less than 4 months their team has created over a dozen illustrations of my device, descriptive language to explain the illustrations, then, added a second but similar device, with more illustrations and descriptive language, researched and created a Logo for my product, and then created two different Sell Sheets for prospective licensees. To handle all of this in less than 4 months, concept to filing, the Rizvi Team has demonstrated nothing less than total professionalism, showing great attention to detail and quick response to questions or changes. YES, I would highly recommend John Rizvi and his team as the ONLY attorney to protect my intellectual properties.

I highly recommend John Rizvi for all of your patent needs
I hired John Rizvi for 2 patents that are now in "patent pending" status. Mr. Rizvi and his team provides excellent customer service. They go above and beyond to provide full support and address any concerns throughout the process. It shows that they genuinely care about their work and their clients. They take their time to really listen. I would definitely use them again and I highly recommend John Rizvi for any IP services.

A Trustworthy, Reliable, Patent Attorney.
KNOWLEDGEABLE. HONEST. RELIABLE. These are the words that come to mind when you need a TRUSTWORTHY patent attorney. From the start, I felt my needs were being met and that I was personally taken care of. I had, what seemed like a million of questions and concerns, but John Rizvi and his knowledgeable staff were prepared and patient. During the process, It was never difficult to get ahold of anyone I wanted/needed to talk to. They always had a great line of communication. John Rizvi and his team really understood the idea I had in my mind and how to protect it. I’m so happy that I hired John Rizvi. I would absolutely recommend this attorney to anyone and everyone.

EXCELLENT
My sister and I went for an appointment with Mr. John Rizvi, We were fascinated with his way of explaining the patenting law for any idea. We though we had our things Patent the correctly way, He told us it's patent, but not the right way., He explained everything to my sister and I in a way that we understood everthing he was saying in plain English. Now we have a good and honest Patent Attorney to represent us., My sister and I are very glad that God put Mr. John Rizvi in our way.

I came to John a only a few months ago with my Idea and Prototype. I could see the enthusiasm in his face. He was eager to get involved He is a very nice person to deal with, very informative and is great at explaining everything in detail. Here we are now only weeks later with a Provisional Patent with a wide open door. WOOHOO! Thank you to John and his Team. See you later in the year to work on the non-prov.

Patent Professor - John Rizvi
John Rizvi and his group have been great to work with. Their pricing has been up front and fair. They are also extremely responsive and very organized. I am in the process of developing new software for the construction industry and researched who had experience in software patents. I found two companies that seemed qualified but liked what I saw with Rizvi and his experience the most. I contacted them first and never looked back. I am very glad I hired them. I even purchased and read all of John's books. They just helped me file my provisional application and I look forward to working with them before the year is up and make sure the non-provisional application gets filed. Sincerely, Paul M.

HONEST LAWYER
I have a lot of respect for Mr. Rizvi. I hired Mr. Rizvi for my patenting matter. However, before he completed his initial research, I stumbled upon my idea already done by somebody else. I immediately brought this to Mr. Rizvi’s attention and he gave me a complete refund. Mr. Rizvi is an honest and ethical person and if I ever have another idea, I will reach out to him again.

John Rizvi Rating
This was my first time pursuing something of this nature so I had no idea where to begin. I searched online and John Rizvi had so many high ratings and I see why. During the process I had some unfortunate events happen and Mr. Rizvi was nothing but accommodating and never pushy. He was always available to answer any questions I had, and I had a lot. He gave me some sound advice and I highly would recommend him.

Universal container Seal
I hired John Rizvi to help me with obtaining a patent on an idea. He made no promise, but thought there was a go chance. I worked with one of his very qualified engineers in his office. It paid off. I got the patent I was looking for, and with his advice added more claims he recommended to make it even stronger. He has stayed on top of it ever since with following up on every thing needed to keep it active.

Thank You John & Team
I searched on the internet for weeks to find the best qualified patent attorney I could find. I quickly learned that not all patent professionals are the same. John's education, experience, and track record was very impressive so I made a free consultation with him. I came to John with an idea and absolutely no experience on how to do anything related to making it happen. Meeting with John was awesome. He made me feel very comfortable and did not talk over my head. He is very knowledgeable in his craft and he explained every little step. John's team kept me in the loop on what to do and by when to do it. They basically held my hand through the entire process. We had so many phone conferences and he always made time for me when I called. The united states patent office denied my "patent" many times. John and his awesome team fought for me and helped me through it all. It was the easiest process for me and now I have been issued the patent. Do not look any further because Gold & Rizvi is all you need. Seriously. David Retired Firefighter/EMT Skateboarder GK Knights of Columbus #
