What should I look for in a patent attorney?

Interviewing Patent Attorneys

When you are looking around for a patent attorney for your new product idea, ask each one about their area of expertise. If they are used to doing searches and writing opinions on electronics, they won't be as much help with your board game invention. Keep looking until you find a patent attorney who is used to working with inventions in the same category as yours.

You'll also want to make sure that your patent attorney is registered with the PTO. It is generally recommended to go with a patent attorney who charges a flat fee. Don't go with a patent attorney who wants to charge you for your initial interview.
