Patents give coverage to inventions. In broad terminology, an invention is a new, useful and unobvious article of manufacture or improvement thereto. Inventions also include composition of matter, method of fabricating a product, methods that are useful in business, ornamental design for article of manufacture and asexually reproduced plants. Applications for patents can be filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Samuel Hopkins, of Pittsford, Vermont, received the first United States patent on July 31, 1790, for an improvement “in the making of Pot ash and Pearl ash by a new Apparatus and Process.” On 14 March 1794, United States Patent Number 1 was issued to Eli Whitney for “New Invented Cotton Gin, or Machine for Separating Cotton from Its Seed.”
"Our company has worked with a number of patent attorneys and were so pleased when we began working with Parsons & Goltry nearly a decade ago. Mike Goltry's knowledge and attention to detail has enabled us to have numerous products patented and trademarks registered. We highly recommend this Law Firm."
"Michael Goltry is the most professional, honest and effective patent attorney whom I ever met in my 40 year professional engineering career. I started to work with him over 20 years ago and plan to work indefinitely."
"Mr. Goltry took a provisional patent that we'd filed ourselves, and quickly and professionally turned our innovation into U.S. and foreign applications. His [patent claims] were a thing of beauty, and I was amazed by how deftly he countered the inevitable office actions. His language held up, and the U.S. Patent just issued. He was easy and efficient to work with, and his fees were remarkably reasonable. We're not planning to go anywhere else, ever."
"I applied for a patent through Parsons & Goltry. After being on the docket for 2 years at the USPTO, I received notification that my patent request had been denied. Michael Goltry contacted me immediately to review my options. After I informed him of my decision to move forward, he filed a response to the USPTO. In his response he got the examiner to fully understand the claims in the patent application and the "denied" decision was reversed. I was able to secure and receive a "patent granted" decision. Thank you, Michael Goltry."
