MPA is a
Patent agency dedicated to ensuring the protection of your intellectual property
with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) by preparing and prosecuting
patents in the US, and through the PCT process in the rest of the
Besides being a Patent Agent, I am an Electrical Engineer (and a named inventor in 10 US patents as well as various in other countries), (see more about my Vitae here) with an MS in Systems Engineering. I have participated in enough electro-optic and mechanical products to be very confident in my ability to understand inventors in most of the electrical, mechanical, software, hardware, medical and business arts. I am completely fluent in Spanish, so I can do the above in two languages!
In addition, I spent years as an engineer legally "getting around" other's patents (you do this by carefully examining their claims language and making sure you don't perform functions exactly the same way). So when I draft claims, I do it having experience on both sides of the table.
In short, I've been there, done that, and can compare T-shirts with you, whether your experience is as a VC-funded startup, bootstrap, a growing small company or a large Corporation.
