Plain and simple, I could never have accomplished what I did (secure a patent) if not for Steve Evans. As a "micro" business, the capital I had available for such an endeavor was very limited. Steve worked with me while doing an extremely thorough job on my project - which is why I own the patent on the P2 Force!

Steve has handled all aspects of filing our patent applications, and for reissuing a previously issued patent. He is highly motivated and energized to understand the usage and value behind obtaining a patent; he worked well with us in explaining the application process and working effectively towards a solution.

Steve Evans at Chicago IP Law was recommended to us for both IP protection and litigation, and we hired him for both. His high-powered background brought us a unique combination of understanding business, demystifying complex legal issues, developing litigation strategy, and demonstrating great strength in the courtroom. His preparedness literally scared the company we were pursuing into a settlement beyond our expectations. We got the best combination of big law firepower and small firm affordability, and legal costs were important to us. We recommend him to anyone, big or small, in protecting and litigating intellectual property. We also learned that having sophisticated protection on the front end, makes enforcement so much easier on the backend. Don't compromise.
