I used Stanzione and Associates to perform a patent search and opinion as well as to file an expedited full patent application on a relatively complex medical device. The service provided far exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Patrick personally handled the initial appointments and was extremely flexible in meeting my schedule. He was available to answer all my questions and provided me with amazing insight regarding my product as well as the application process in general. Patrick’s background as a former USPTO examiner as well as his background in engineering makes him an incredible asset as he understands the patent process extremely well. His engineering background lends itself to understanding your concepts effortlessly. He was also able to handle the actual artwork through a professional drafting company in addition to drafting some himself, which also facilitated the process. The final product was a professional, quality patent application. On a personal level, Patrick is a pleasure to be around. He is very pleasant, thoughtful and thoroughly dependable. I fully recommend Stanzione and Associates, PLLC without reservation.

Patrick Stanzione’s one of those professionals where you walk away from a discussion thinking “that guy just *really* helped me out!” The result of our Company’s experience with Stanzione Associates was excellent, and made me want to review because theyre different than the other IP lawyers we’ve had to work with. The difference is this: Patrick has broad enough experience and background in the basic sciences and software underlying our physical products and services, that his suggestions and drafting added to the scope and strength of our filings. Mainly because of his insight of how our technology could be applied in differing domains, we ended up with much better coverage. This is not easy stuff to find, and I think grows out of Patrick’s quick uptake on the essence of an invention. And his knowledge of the new PTO procedures gives us solid confidence that procedurally we’re taking the right approach. I recommend 100% you interview with them, you’ll find the terms very reasonable. We wanted him on our team, and we’re lucky to have him. John Shek, General Counsel, Cimetrics Inc.

This depends whether you are having a provisional application filed or a non-provisional application. Although a provisional application has lower filing fees and lower costs to draft the application, you may want to go directly to having a non-provisional application drafted and filed if you are ready for the invention to be examined for novelty by the USPTO. The cost to have either the provisional application or the non-provisional application drafted depends on how complex the invention is as well as how much time it takes to draft the application. Contact me directly for more details.
