So fortunate to have chosen Mike Goltry
Mike was my clear choice after consulting with several attorneys and I made the right choice. He is a brilliant attorney with a winning strategy and approach to writing successful patent applications. My first patent is now being issued and gives me strong protection, with two more to follow. Mike is direct and always tells it like it is with no exaggeration. His professional fees make sense. I'm fortunate Michael Goltry is my patent attorney.

With great appreciation! Janet Gordon and Harriet Klein
My mother and I created a product and put together a utility patent. We weren't sure of our next step, but we were referred to Mike Goltry. After interviewing a few attorneys, we were confident we had found the right one. We used Mike Goltry to write and submit our patent. He was well informed and answered all of our questions honestly. In addition, he was always prompt in replying, kind and very efficient. We are very grateful for his knowledge and skills as we were able to patent our product.

Matt Dorfner, Executive Director, Minn-Iowa Christian Broadcasting, Inc.
We enlisted the services of "Parsons and Goltry" in our desire to trademark our logo and certain intellectual property phrases and found the process professional, timely, and comprehensive. The terms of engagement were thorough and the cost estimate was reasonable. As this was the first time we had ever sought a trademark, I was very pleased that the firm and Mr. Michael Goltry were very helpful in explaining the process and expected timeline and particularly responsive to my many questions. I was able to communicate our goals and needs via email and was very pleased with the return communication (both electronic and personal phone calls) from Mr. Goltry. The timeline for the process was accurate and the expected charges were exactly as estimated. While I understand that not all applications are alike, I'm happy to report that all three of our trademark applications were approved within the expected timeline and the Certificate of Registrations were received from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. I, for one, would sincerely recommend the services of Parsons and Goltry and I would readily enlist them as we need similar services in the future.

The best patent attorney, I ever met and worked with
I have worked with several local attorneys at Snell & Wilmer, Weis & Moy, B. Luther, B. DeSandro, W. Caroll, Weiss Brown and Perkins Coie. No names to be mentioned here. By far superior to all was Michael Goltry, whom I learned a lot in the last 20+ years working with him on several of my inventions. He insists on his way. The end result is always superior to all possible outcomes, as I have learned in retrospect. I keep recommending his services to everyone whom I care. I wish him long life to catch up with his wisdom. His honesty will carry him on all the way. You may share this sincere opinion with anyone you wish.

I can tell you as an inventor and owner of an IP company that after working with Michael Goltry I would NEVER even consider using another patent attorney. In this business it is all about trust and I have worked with other attorneys and none compare to Michael in regard to integrity and brilliance when it comes to writing patents. Michael Goltry is a rare breed; humble, professional, trustworthy and a hard worker who has always gotten back with me in a timely manner. He has communicated with me over many weekends and his work is impressive. I would recommend Michael’s firm to anyone without reservation.

Above and beyond expectations
The Fender Music Foundation would like to say thank you to Mr. Goltry for his help with obtaining a patent for our music charity. He was professional, friendly, and most of all very thorough. His law firm even donated an instrument to our cause which has helped us to "Give Music Life".
