"My first patented invention helped me grow a single product into a company with an entire line of hair accessories and other beauty products. In the course of enforcing my patent rights against competitors, other intellectual patent attorneys have complimented me on how broadly my patent application was written."

Mia Minnelli Kaminski

"My wife and I are highly impressed with the methods and support of your team through our efforts to patent our idea. Since we were not the first to identify our idea, the evaluation process saved us a great deal of time and money. Even though we were not ultimately successful in our original goal, I feel that we are in a better position now than if we had attempted a different course of action. We have gained a great deal of valuable insights about the patent process and will use the Goldstein evaluation option for our next idea."

Don and Gayle McFadyen

"I want people to know that you really went to bat for me when it mattered most. While most of the patents you got for me went through on the first shot, for those that didn’t: you fought hard to get them approved. As a result, my products sell around the world, and generate millions. In my book, you are the best!"

Lou Sardo

"After working with you for more than 12 years, I would gladly recommend your firm to anyone considering the patent process. The expertise and professional way you handled and expedited my patent cases has helped me create and protect the success I have today. The skill used in wording my patents has even helped me defend and win a lawsuit..."

Lt. Mike Bishop

"[Goldstein] took the time to understand my ideas and the application of these ideas... [The firm] successfully submitted and secured five United States Patents and one Trademark and all with the first submittal to the United States Patent Office. These Patents still stand today and are unbeatable..."

Patent Evaluation

A patent evaluation will help determine if you idea can be patented and whether it is worth patenting.

Agile Patenting

A nimble approach to obtaining patent protection for ideas that are developing quickly along the path from concept to market.


A design patent protects the ornamental appearance of a functional product.

Provisional Patent Application

A provisional patent application is an optional step toward a utility patent, establishing priority for your idea at a lower cost.


A utility patent protects a combination of components that are put together in a unique way for a functional purpose.

Patenting Software

A smartphone apps, a web application, or a software product may be protectable with a utility patent.

“I know of two instances where other companies were interested in duplicating my product and tried to break my patent, but gave up after their patent attorneys told them it was pointless. I now have my Eyeglass Locator on the market and it's a dream come true.”
