What is the Cost of a Patent/ Patent Attorney? Part I

Updated: Aug 10, 2021

Four factors determine the cost of a lawyer:

1. Does the law firm have corporate office space? (Office costs take about a third of legal fees.)

2. Does the law firm have more than one lawyer? (“Partners” get 1/4 to 1/3 of every lawyer’s billings.)

3. Does the lawyer have staff? (Try as they have to, staff cannot bill all their time, so the lawyers’ fees help pay the staff.)

4. Does the lawyer charge flat fees? (A flat fee means you pay a fixed amount, not hourly fees.)

The Law Office of Gerald R. Prettyman does not have corporate office space, nor multiple lawyers, or staff, and often charges a flat fee. As a consequence, you can save as much as or more than 50% with the Law Office of Gerald R. Prettyman.
