How To File A Provisional Patent Application?
- You can hire a U.S. patent attorney, like me, to draft and file your provisional patent application for you, OR
- You can file it for yourself.
Due the complexity of patent law, I highly recommend hiring a U.S. patent attorney or U.S. patent agent to draft and file your provisional patent application for you unless you are prepared to spend a lot to time and money learning how to competently draft your own patent applications.
While I cannot guarantee that my services are a good fit for your needs, why not call me to see if I can bring some value to what you are doing?
