Eric Alspaugh is simply the best!
Eric has been there for us every step of the way. He is professional, courteous and incredibly thorough. My wife is a cartoonist and Eric has made sure her intellectual property has been completely protected.

Excellent Attorney
I trust Eric immensely. I am a client of his for IP work, but he has also counseled me on various other areas of legalities around my business. I am pleased with all his help and highly recommend him.

Outstanding General Counsel
Although we are well aware of Mr. Alspaugh's capabilities as a specialist in IP and patent law, our needs have been more in the general business, business formation and contracts review arenas. We have engaged with Mr. Alspaugh numerous times over the years as needs have dictated and each and every time he has delivered in an outstanding manner. We have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with many attorneys in the past but by far Mr. Alspaugh has been the most responsive, up front, honest, and pleasant one that we have met. We will continue to use Mr. Alspaugh for our general business and contract legal needs... and if I am fortunate enough to invent something of value in the future, perhaps we will also have opportunity to engage his IP expertise.

Standard Aggrement for Independent Contracting Services
I was hired as an independent contractor for a local professional organization and was required to provide my own contract for services as they did not have a standard form. Mr. Alspaugh provided me with a contract specific to my position and also provided a general contract for the organization to use for future independent hires. He was timely and professional in his responses and in delivering the final product. I would definitely recommend him and I plan to use his services again in the future.

If you are a Startup, hire him!
Eric has been a part of Faststart Studio as a in-house patent attorney and has worked with almost all the companies that go through the incubator. The high recommendation from some of the companies who worked with Eric made our search super easy. Eric is responsive, trustworthy, well known in the community and very knowledgeable. We are glad we are working with Eric and look forward to working with him i the future as well.
