Patent searches vary depending on the time involved in the searching. We use a Washington D.C. patent attorney to perform our searches. Sometimes, I (a patent attorney of 30 years) do the searches myself using the internet which is usually less expensive than our Washington attorney. Please let us know what your invention is by completing our Inventor's Testimonial by going to our website and clicking on "Patents" and click on "Download our New Client form". By completing the Inventor's Testimonial you are creating evidence which can be used in Court to prove when you conceived your invention and when you reduced it to practice. If you contact us, we can contact you with specific price information based on what is to be searched.
