News doesn’t get any better than this.
I work hard to be the kind of attorney I would want to hire. Not only smart, but cares about me and my case. She enjoys her work and treats me as more than an invoice, because I am not made of money. Getting a patent or trademark is not like buying books on Amazon. It is investment in your business, and is not entered into lightly. The process takes time and is often frustrating. It is not unlike navigating a ship through the open sea.
So, when a client’s design patent application for a fishing tool just sailed through the patent office (pun proudly intended!), I just jumped for joy. If that was not reason enough to celebrate, he posted this unsolicited shout-out on his public Instagram page:
I did prepare and file the application, but I must share credit with my client for his slick design and my trusted patent illustrator, Joshua McVaney, for bringing the product to life.
I never expect thanks. A job well done is its own reward. But when thanks come my way, and publicly, well, that makes it all worthwhile.
