"Inventors Unite!"
The Patent Office was established to give inventors a legitimate option to protect their inventions. For far too long, Invention Promotion Companies (IPC) have literally defrauded inventors by charging them exorbitant fees, promising them the world, but in the end, delivering less than nothing. IPCs are private and public consulting and marketing businesses that exist to help inventors bring their inventions to market, or to otherwise profit from their ideas. While some of these organizations are legitimate, too many are not. So if you decide not to employ our services for your invention, please, just be wary of any IPC that is willing to promote your invention or product without making a detailed inquiry into the merits of your idea. And be equally wary of IPCs that will automatically recommend that you pursue patent protection for your idea with little regard for the value of any patent that may ultimately issue.

Additionally, The Patent Office is committed to empowering inventors by providing a resource where inventors will receive the same level of service and quality of work as they would from visiting a patent attorney, because that is who we are, while at the same time, saving a considerable amount of time and money in the process.
"You determine your patent expenses"
Another aspect of The Patent Office that reflects our goal of empowering inventors is our pricing philosophy. We independently assess and quote each submission and base our fee on two factors:

  1. How well you describe your invention to us, and

  2. How complex your invention is.
To that end, inventors that submit well-described and relatively simple inventions will be the least expensive for us to prepare. Simply put, The Patent Office gives you the inventor the opportunity to reduce your patent expenses if you put forth a quality effort in describing your invention in your submission.

For example, consider an application where the level of complexity dictates a fee of $1500.
  1. A very detailed submission by the inventor would result in a reduction of the fee to $1000.

  2. An average submission would be $1500.

  3. A submission that is considerably less than average would result in an increase in the fee to $2000.
In this example, the difference is a whopping $1000. Although this is just an example, it is a very real situation. The third scenario is more expensive because there are holes in the submission that will have to be filled in order for us achieve the required understanding to draft a proper application. To fill those holes takes extra time and effort on our part relative to the first and second scenarios, hence the additional fees. So do your best to answer the questions fully.
"We do it the right way"
The Patent Office utilizes a contemporary and concise patent drafting strategy that was developed in response to recent case law, which dictates that the “old way” of drafting a patent application is simply the “wrong way.” Patents, and the rules and case law governing them, are constantly evolving. For example, how a patent practitioner would draft a patent application just 7 years ago is completely different than how one should draft an application today. The changes dictated by recent case law are so sweeping that a patent practitioner’s failure to understand the effects of these changes leaves a client at a substantial disadvantage. The Patent Office takes an approach to patent drafting that not only responds to the changes that are affecting each and every client, but also ensures that its clients obtain the greatest advantage possible.
