I’m more than an engineer and patent attorney ... being an artist and innovator myself, I add my creative talents to my professional skills to best protect your invention. With SDPPP you will get options and solutions no other patent attorney will even think about. For example, I had a client come to me and plop a tiny small object on my desk and try and explain their invention from it. Other patent attorneys this client had gone to first, stared blankly, and told the client their idea wasn’t protectable. The truth was, they had no idea what the client’s invention was, because they lacked the creativity to see and understand it. I instantly knew what the invention was and was able to draft a full robust patent application with drawings expanding the client’s protection to the fullest. Because I’m innovative and creative, I can understand and think outside the box to bring to the table what others patent attorneys can’t – enabling you to get more than just good technical and legal services. That is why we say SDPPP is the “bridge between innovation and law.” Mary Fales, President
