Rich Goldstein

Principal Patent Attorney & Business Coach

While most patent attorneys do not work with individual inventors, Rich Goldstein has built a career on working with both individual inventors and start-up companies.
His approach includes listening to and understanding their goals and needs.

  • Providing custom-tailored representation.
  • Offering specific guidance to keep their project moving toward their individual goals.
  • He has given critical advice to more than 10,000 inventors, and has obtained nearly 2,000 patents for his clients.

He has educated thousands more about the patent process through his seminars, educational videos, and best selling book: The ABA Consumer Guide to Obtaining a Patent.

He also works directly with executives to help them make effective decisions to protect their IP, meet their business goals, and leverage the value of what they have already created.

Rich regularly attends a wide variety of entrepreneurship and innovation events and actively explores new ways to help his clients achieve their business and personal goals.
