Attorney Behnken has shown himself to be a strong advocate on my behalf. In pending matters, he has been deliberative, well-informed and very responsive to my questions. His writing is clear, and he knows how to best-position an argument. He has provided me with good advice and strategic planning.
While reviewing my draft of a non-provisional application, Attorney Behnken was critical where appropriate, and I found his guidance to be quite valuable. He also demonstrated a skilled ability to make subtle improvements that, in my opinion, made my disclosure better.
With respect to collaboration, deadlines, details, and budget restrictions, I discovered he could well-manage these tasks while meeting or surpassing my expectations. You will like the fact that he is a good listener, and wants to be of genuine service.

When it comes to intellectual property you want a knowledgeable attorney who is on your "team." When presented with our invention Steve proved right away he knew what to do and he showed sincere interest in helping us through the patenting process.
We were impressed with how quickly he was able to draft our application and we loved how accessible he was throughout the process.
With more ideas in the hopper we look forward to working with him again soon.
