Knows what he's doing...
In my humble opinion, the biggest issue with most attorneys is they are 'somewhat' incompetent. No so for Bob McKellar. He's been around, knows the inherent problems, idiosyncrasies, and strategies. Simply put: HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING. He's all you could ask for.

Patience and personable
Bob has heled me with several patents over a 20 year time frame. He was flexible and showed patience during some extenuating circumstances.

He gives advance notices on anything pertaining to our Patents/Trademarks. He keeps us informed on any issues on the rise; and he has a great team at his practice. And he practices great due diligence and I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal help with Patents/Trademarks.
