Posted by Jeff | January 8, 2013
Joe Kovarik is my patent attorney.
My vocabulary does not contain enough superlatives to describe Joe Kovarik, the patent attorney that I was lucky enough to hire in 2008. During this time, Mr. Kovarik has provided invaluable legal counsel, has been my most loyal advocate, has diplomatically steered me away from potential problems and has allowed me to be successful at the USPTO. During a conflict which I had with a large corporation, Joe took them on and soundly beat them. This was not just due to his brilliance at the time, but had a lot to do with the preparations he made years in advance where he was essentially prescient in recognizing a dishonest company. Mr. Kovarik is the finest patent attorney I've had the pleasure to work with over the past 24 years. It is worth inventing something just to have him as your attorney.
