There are probably many people who feel awkward to set foot inside a patent office because most people hardly ever face patent related issues in daily life. I strive to become the type of patent attorney who makes people like these feel comfortable so that they can contact me whenever they would like to discuss an issue. Thank you very much for your interest.
