patentsHave a great idea? Let patent attorney Roby Robinson help you protect it.

In order to obtain protection for an idea in the United States, it is necessary to apply for and obtain a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ( USPTO ). Inventors can attempt to accomplish this themselves or inventors can use a person licensed to practice before the USPTO (a patent attorney or a patent agent ). Roby Robinson is a licensed patent attorney ( patent lawyer ) and has been helping inventors and companies obtain patents both domestically and from patent offices in sovereign nations around the world.

With the advent of the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act of 2011 ( AIA ) and the new first inventor to file rule, it is more important than ever to have someone with a firm understanding of the new landscape of the U.S. patent system.
