Trademark & Patent Attorneys
Do You Have an Idea?
Perhaps it's an idea that you have been working on for months, or maybe even years?
Maybe you've been working on this idea at home in the garage, the basement or even in your home office. Or perhaps you've been tinkering with an idea at work when you've had some free time.
And like most, you continually think to yourself "This is a great idea".
And maybe you even confided in family or friends about this idea....and they told you the same thing? If this scenario sounds familiar, then maybe it's time to take the next step.
And we'd like to help.
Incidentally, we are also best friends from law school.
Over 15 years ago, we dreamed of forming a law firm focusing exclusively on protecting new ideas and have worked hard over the years to build the reputation of Gold & Rizvi, P.A. to where it is today.
Together we make an unbeatable team – The Idea Attorneys®.
We believe that is far better to excel in a single area of law then to be mediocre in a number of different fields. So, we focus on doing only one thing - protecting new ideas - and doing it better than anyone else.
Every day we secure and preserve the intellectual property rights of our clients with their patent, trademark and copyright issues. We even extend our practice to even more specialized areas of intellectual property laws such as trade secrets, computer and Internet law, unfair competition, and franchising matters related to intellectual property.
Both of us are frequently quoted in national legal journals and intellectual property publications. Over the years, we have become recognized experts in intellectual property law and are AV rated by the Martindale Hubbel legal directory, the highest rating possible for a law firm.
And as clients of our firm, you will always deal directly with one of us.
Just below, we provide more information about patents, trademarks and other areas of Intellectual Property Law. Go ahead and spend a few minutes exploring the area that applies to your particular situation....and discover what you need to do to take your idea to the next level.
But before you do, let me say this....
When it comes down to finding help with your ideas, you really deserve better than the closest local patent attorney.
Here's what I mean by that. If you were looking for a surgeon to perform open-heart surgery, would you limit your search to those advertising in your local phone book or within driving distance?
Of course not. You would look for the most experienced, recommended, and qualified doctor you can find — and travel to him or her to have your operation.
If your idea is good enough that you worry about someone stealing it, it is worth patenting – and patenting it correctly.
And since hiring a patent attorney requires no travel, why limit your search to the closest attorneys you can find?
Less than 1 percent of all lawyers are registered to practice before the United States Patent Office. So why limit your choice of a lawyer even further by focusing on the tiny handful of patent lawyers that happen to be within driving distance of you?
All patenting matters can (and usually are) handled personally via telephone, facsimile, email, and overnight delivery without any required in-person meetings. Today, most patent applications are filed ELECTRONICALLY over the Internet using the Patent Office’s digital filing software — making a lawyer's distance from the Patent Office completely irrelevant. In fact, the U.S. Patent Office stopped maintaining paper copies of patents at their patent search facility years ago.
That's why it's no surprise that a significant number of our clients are located all over the U.S., and many are even outside of the United States (Our easy to use webcam and video conferencing abilities attract a lot of new clients).
