Can I file my own patent application?

Don't File Your Own Patent Application

There's a saying that goes, “Attorneys that represent themselves have a fool for a client.” Well, the same may be true for inventors.

A skilled patent attorney or patent agent has honed his or her skills through years of education and experience. A good patent attorney will be able to translate the nuances of your new product into a much stronger application – giving you a broader claim with greater protections.

You will wind up with a more valuable intellectual property asset.
