Highly Recommend
Mr. Bycer came highly recommended to me and I am grateful to have reached out to him for help with my Patent and Trademark. He responded back quickly and worked with my schedule for the initial consultation. Mr. Bycer is an effective listener, combined with his experience and knowledge we developed a plan to help me move forward with my patent and trademark relative to my budget. Mr. Bycer treated me like the most important client that ever walked through his door and expressed genuine well wishes for my success. I look forward to continuing to work with this talented gentleman as my business grows. Thank you so very much.

Matthew helped me on a few questions I had about a design patent I was pursuing. If you need help on any patent processes, Matthew is very helpful.

Best IP attorney I've worked with
I own an e-commerce shop and needed to consult with an IP attorney on several occasions due to trademark and copyright issues. I've worked with 3 different IP attorneys over the years and Matt Bycer hands down has been the best to work with. He talked to me for over an hour and took the time to truly understand my situation and needs. I strongly recommend Mr. Bycer and will continue to use his services.
