We employ a state-of-the-art computer system that integrates docketing, practice forms, and personal calendaring for each attorney. Whenever possible, it is our practice to file responses to official actions by the first due date, and to report official actions to our clients promptly upon receipt. These measures avoid fees for extensions of time and optimize the patent term.

Our attorneys are actively involved in professional associations, and regularly speak at and attend professional meetings at both the local and national levels.

We understand that different clients have different needs and priorities, and we are accustomed to tailoring our services to meet each client's needs. We are committed to accommodating the needs and preferences of each individual client, and we encourage you to share with us your concerns and priorities so that we address them in the most effective manner.
