Our Reviews

March 2023

After the long non-provisional patent application process, I received a call from Richard (Eldredge). “Congratulations! By the way, this has been the most difficult patent I have obtained.” From our first conversation until now Richard and his team has worked tirelessly on my behalf. As an engineer, Richard quickly understands my concepts, designs, and verbal descriptions of the device and processes that I convey. He is highly intelligent, witty, and thoughtful. The team kind, thorough, and keep an open communication…

March 2023

Richard’s knowledge and experience is top notch which lead to my patent being awarded. His prices are competitive and I’m working with him on a Trademark and a patent continuation. I look forward to our continued relationship.

February 2023

During my first consultation Mr. Eldredge shared the necessary steps and required information needed to apply for a provisional patent. He also stated a clear expectation of time it would take to do a patent search and to get the provisional patent. Well it literally took 2 weeks from the time I submitted the necessary documents to his office for me to receive my provisional patent. How awesome is that. Mr. Eldredge and his associates were professional, available and delivered outstanding value.
