"Patent Office Should Help Innovators"
Michigan Lawyers Weekly

January 24, 2011  Earlier this year, the Detroit area was selected as the location for the first satellite United States Patent and Trademark Office.

We have a lot of cases where we`d like to go in person, but in a lot of cases, it`s cost prohibitive.”
