Why Hire a Patent Attorney?
At the Leavitt Eldredge Law Firm we recognize that your ideas have value. This is why our clients trust our patent lawyers to represent their ideas. Patent lawyer and patent attorney are synonymous terms for highly trained type of lawyer. Like any lawyer they must go to law school and take the bar to practice, but patent lawyers must also have a science or engineering degree and pass a second bar for admission to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
How to Pick the Right Patent Lawyer?
Unfortunately, for all the extra training and licenses required to become a patent lawyer, finding one that you can trust that is also budget friendly can sometimes be a challenge. Simply put, if you don’t trust your patent lawyer, hire one that you can. Our firm begins building that trust with its clients by offering free consultations and affordable, flat rate fees as a budget friendly option. If you like the idea of an affordable, flat rate patent lawyer, schedule your free consultation and give us the chance to impress you.
Does it Matter Where My Patent Attorney Lives?
Simply put, patent law is what we call a federal practice, which means that any patent lawyer should be able to represent you before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). In fact, although we maintain offices throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Houston, and Denver metroplex, the majority of our clients are perfectly content to interact with us by email and phone. That doesn’t mean to say that if you find yourself passing by any of our locations within the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Houston, and Denver metroplex we wouldn’t love to see you! Simply schedule an appointment, either by phone or to meet us in person at one of our locations.

What you create is unique. Obtain a copyright so that it stays that way.

Every school-aged child hates a “copycat”. We think this is because people generally recognize that what they create is generally unique to them.
Whether it’s a book, a song, or a mural, registering copyrights is a powerful way to protect what you create.
What you know can have tremendous value, even if its only value is as a secret.
Trade secrets fill the gap to protect anything else not covered by other forms of intellectual property like patents, trademarks, or copyright.
If you know something so precious that you can’t even bear to share it except for in the most restrictive circumstances, you should seriously consider a trade secret.

In 2019 Brandon Leavitt successfully defended a small cattle rancher in a trade dress infringement suit by a large manufacturer of cattle chutes. The matter proceeded to a federal trial, where Mr. Leavitt ultimately proved that the Plaintiff’s registered trade dress was invalid and should be cancelled. In a true David and Goliath moment, the Plaintiff had demanded millions of dollars from Mr. Leavitt’s client––and lost its own federal trade dress registration in the process.
In establishing his case, Mr. Leavitt demonstrated how the United States Patent and Trademark Office might sometimes grant a trademark or trade dress that is nevertheless unenforceable in other jurisdictions, and provided a clear analysis on complex trademark issues such as: functionality, abandonment, fraudulent procurement, laches, unclean hands, equitable estoppel, and fair use.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us
We can’t please them all, but our clients seem to really appreciate our work.
Worked with Richard E. on a provisional patent application. He was responsive and completed the assignment exactly as promised.
Although I did not start with Richard’s team (I fired two before him) – I ended up with his team and I am very proud to say I am being awarded my first patent. Unless you plan to pay a house payment per hour on attorney fees, I believe that collaborative ties with your attorney help ensure your success. Richard’s team has been very accommodating, has been the most responsive law firm I have ever worked with, and I consider his team a permanent fixture in my arsenal. That is why I have hired Richard for several other jobs (filed a Notice of Allowance, CIP, 2nd US patent, PCT and trademark). I will continue to work with Richard and his team on many more projects, so I cannot recommend them enough. Hire them with total confidence!
Richard and his team were very helpful and great with answering questions and making sure our trademark application made it by the deadline!
