Basil Angelo shepherded my startup technology company through the challenging Patent Filing and Acquisition process. My firm hired Mr. Angelo because of his deep technical expertise, knowledge the the United States Patent process and outstanding communication skills.
As the CEO, I look for professional advisors that can understand and work within the culture and process structure of our company. It is important that our advisors become an integral part of our team. Mr. Angelo is a valued member of our tem. He earned that status through his hard work, communication skills and ability to deliver on his project milestones within his estimated fee structure.
Our entire team has concluded that Mr. Angelo delivers excellent value. We look forward to our next Patent engagement with him.
I rate him as an A Plus professional advisor for any CEO.

Basil Angelo helped my company in a challenging contract negotiation with a much larger multi-national, and provided a much stronger negotiating position for us than we would have otherwise had. His depth of knowledge leveled the playing field, and his calm demeanor and strong business background helped bring it home. Really appreciated his support and plan to work with him again in the future for cryptographic utility patents.

I approached Basil regarding my invention, inquiring after a patent. I had no prior experience in this area. He was very detailed and professional in navigating me through this process. It was his knowledge that was impressive and crucial. I appreciated his forthright honest business approach with me, no unpleasant surprises. He is very prompt and easy to communicate with and comfortable to approach with any of my concerns.

Mr. Angelo was eager to help and easy to work with via email and phone calls. Although my case was fairly simple - securing a trade mark - he took care of the details, made clear what I should provide regarding documentation, and explained well the process and time involved.

We are a company in Europa and needed legal help with the patent filing procedure. Basil Michael Angelo was recommended to us and we made an appointment during our stay in Houston. Basil is a pleasant person and knows a lot about the procedure. He also showed us a clear overview of the costs and we decided to hire him.
During the process Basil explained all the necessary steps via email and during Skype sessions. He is a cooperative person and also managed the procedure very well. He kept track of the deadlines and is very well aware of the requirements during the procedure.

Basil offered consultation about a patent application and related trademarks. Our trademark was initially rejected by the USPTO. Basil was able to overturn the rejection and saved us a ton of money on our branding.

People who want to sell a million dollar plus home don't put a For-Sale-By-Owner in their front yard, now do they? No, they don't. If you think you can file a patent application by yourself, think again. My bet is if you try it on your own, you'll fail.
This was my first invention. I didn't know where to start. I read everything on the USPTO.GOV website and realized one thing, I needed professional assistance. Sure, I knew it would cost me money, but I believed so strongly in the merit of my invention, I didn't hesitate to invest the money to properly protect its value. Now that I have completed the process, I am convinced I got really lucky to find Basil. At first, I was overly cautious who I let look at my designs, which is something you should do as well. Basil took the time to understand every aspect of my invention, down to the last washer, nut and screw...and then he crafted an explanation of its design and function it in a way that completely differentiates my design from every other invention that had a similar name. Here again, rather than take the risk, he suggested we file the patent under a better name and convey the art in a way that the US Patent and Trademark Office examiner most certainly will have to agree... that my invention is truly one-of-a-kind. When it comes to the process, he explained options in a way that let me make the decision without imploring me to do this or that. Because of his clear and concise explanations, I elected to to file a provisional patent application more than a month before filing the non-provisional patent. I viewed it like an insurance policy as it helped me sleep better knowing that I could take the additional time to properly develop the perfect set of patent illustrations in a way that a novice could quickly understand how it works. He also assisted me in filing a trademark application for the company name, which may not be important for everyone, but I bet Bill Gates and Steve Jobs did the same. Okay, seriously, I don't think I'm in their league but adding that little 'TM' at the end of the company name didn't cost much but I viewed it as important.
I would strongly recommend Basil as someone who can take a neophyte like me, or a seasoned engineer steeped in filing patent applications, and he'll prepare an application that you will not only have confidence the USPTO will most likely approve, but you'll be equally glad you chose him to be your professional resource.

I would like to thank Basil Angelo for literally changing my life. My invention has been in my head and on scrap paper in my house and office for years. The patent process can be complicated and intimidating. I have met with many attorneys over the years and always decided it was just too much for me to handle. Then I met Basil Angelo and his team. They were so informative, knowledgeable, and responsive. He was always available to answer questions and give sound advice. He has been with me throughout the entire process and I am so grateful I found him. I will be sending all my friends, family and anyone in need of a patent his way!

I have worked with several patent attorneys in the past. Most of the time, there was a lot of frustration and delays. Not so with Basil Angelo. He is clear concise and to the point. He delivers what he says and when he says. I find working with him to be a pleasure. He is very professional and personable.
Thanks for everything, Basil!
