Using patenting of an invention as an example, estimates for drafting a patent application and prosecuting that application before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) suggest a cost of between $20,000 and $30,000 based on the complexity of your idea. If you can afford this, then you are one of the lucky few.

Embracing that responsibility to our clients, this office will do everything it can to provide fair and affordable representation that is, at least, of the quality expected from these large IP firms who will charge you tens of thousands of dollars.
We choose to be an exception so that you can be exceptional, too. Welcome to the Law Office of Robert M. White, PLLC.
