    I have known Craig Weiss for many years, and I would strongly endorse his legal services for any patent application matters or other intellectual property issues. Craig is very friendly and personable. Most importantly, he has the ability to deal with complicated legal matters in a very straightforward, professional, and detail-oriented manner. He has my strongest recommendation.

    When looking to refer client's to a lawyer who specializes in an area outside of that which I practice, I look for an attorney who I would use myself. I found that in Craig. He is extremely attentive to client matters, and handles himself with the professionalism and courtesy I would expect for my client's to receive. Highly recommended!!
