Karen was kind enough to take the time to help me understand how patent law affected my business. She was professional and courteous and I would recommend her to anyone that was in the same situation as I.

Karen is a wonderful attorney that I recommend any chance I can. I have worked with her several times and throughout our work together she was very helpful - educating me about the formal patent process, the most effective way to protect my ideas and has always been very willing to teach me how to do some of the initial research myself - I am always very appreciative of attorneys who are willing to share knowledge that will save money, time and potential legal headaches in the future.

The professional service provided by Karen Dana Oster has been beyond my expectations. I have worked with other law firms in the past but have not experienced the care and professionalism given by Ms. Oster.

I own a small business designing software for patent attorneys (as well as being a patent attorney myself) and I frequently use Karen as a reference when trying to decipher the nuances of IP Law and the operations of the US PTO. She's a very clear thinker and really knows her stuff, and I have greatly benefited from her input over the past ten years.

Karen Oster gives good business advice. She knows how to assess a client's needs, whether the client is an individual person or a large corporation. Karen's patent documents are notable for their exquisite clarity, and her track record of successes is impressive. Her ability to stimulate a company's innovation and to provide a valuable Intellectual Property portfolio can be summed up in two words: "impressive" and "reliable."
