Virginia Patent Law Attorney

You've worked hard on your invention, and now it's time to focus on protecting your rights. One worst-case scenario would be getting through the patent system, only to discover that you've compromised your rights or the value of your invention. The law office of Dale Jensen, PLC, is based in Staunton and serves clients in Virginia, including the Charlottesville metropolitan area. Call today and see how I can help you protect your intellectual property.

Here is one example of how something might go wrong in the patenting process: In 2011, Congress passed the America Invents Act. The act changed the rules so that the first person to file a patent application retains the intellectual property rights, not the first person to actually generate the invention. For an inventor, this means that waiting too long to contact an attorney might negate all of his or her hard work.
