It is important to note that since 1995, the U.S. Patent Office has offered inventors the option of filing a "provisional" patent application which is designed to provide a lower-cost first patent filing in the United States.  Provisional patent applications not only save time but they can save inventors thousands of dollars in patent attorney fees. This fast and lower cost alternative can get you "Patent Pending" status in as little as 24 hours.  

Since 1998, Neustel Law Offices, LTD has helped thousands of inventors save money while seeking patent protection for their inventions.  You can learn more about Michael Neustel who is a U.S. patent attorney.  Learn how our two options below can help you.
