I would strongly recommend Mr. Bi for anyone searching for a patent attorney. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic in filing my patent. He answered all my questions about the patent filing process. I was very impressed how accessible he was even the after hours. Anyone looking for a good patent attorney should contact him at his law office in Naperville, IL.

Edward as he likes to be called, was the lead attorney for my patent application in 2014. We had two refusals from the patent office due to what seemed to me to be unfair prior art allegations. In each case, Edward came up with a strategy to refute the findings. In the end I was able to secure a patent for the product which included the next advancement in the technology which will be added to the current product. So it will protect my IP in the long run. I was very please with his efforts and would recommend him to others for patent issues as well.

I started my own business almost a year ago and reached out to Edward for legal counsel. I have utilized his services on four occasions - primarily for copyright and trademark needs. I have found him to be thorough, responsive, and someone I can depend on. He takes the time to explain what the alternatives are as well as what the next steps, if any, will be. While I don't have extensive experience in working with legal counsel, his rates were what I expected.
I will work with Edward in the future and would recommend him to others.
Konrad Sherinian, Patent application Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Mr. Bi on a number of matters for a wide variety of clients, ranging from simple mechanical inventions to complicated software inventions. He has excellent knowledge of software, mathematics, and other technical areas - this knowledge allows him to quickly grasp the subject matter of an invention and get into drafting an application, rather than spending (and billing for) a lot of time learning the subject area. In addition, he is a pleasure to work with, and has a solid understanding of the principles that make for a good patent application.
