We worked with the office on a design and utility patent. They were professional, timely, and very helpful with answering questions and requesting information. Thanks

Our small start up company recently worked with Al Wiedmann of Santangelo Law Offices to help us through the complicated patent application process. Al was incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of patent law. He asked all the right questions and pushed us to really see the complete scope and applications of our product. I know that we will have an extremely valuable and protective patent once we are completely through the process.
We originally thought about submitting our own patent using self help books and websites, but after working with Al we have realized how short sited that approach would have been. It would have been impossible for us to navigate this tricky process without Al's guidance and expertise.
I highly recommend working with Al and The Idea Asset Group, you won't regret the decision!

As a physician entrepreneur and founder to a medical device company, I can attest to the impressive attention to detail and swift execution to which Santangelo Law Offices has achieved positive results with intellectual property negotiations and granted patents. Luke and his team are remarkably professional and a pleasure to work with. I attribute much of our company’s success to achieving the necessary patents in a timely fashion and have personally witnessed his excellent work with patent examiners.

If you would like someone to charge you money and not really care about your representation and follow up, Luke is the right guy for you!

I continue to have a great experience working the Santangelo Law Offices! They are perfect for the experienced or novice inventor. I literally had no idea where to start with the legal portion of my invention, but after a prayer or two I chose Santangelo's and continue to be very, very happy. You just can not wrong.....

We had our Provisional and full Utility patent completed by Nicole at Santangelo Law Offices. Nicole and the entire staff were extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. They were on top of every deadline and
handled everything efficiently from start to finish. The patent process is a very detailed and exhausting process. The Santangelo Law team, lead by Nicole, explained every step and taking the time to ensure we understood the
entire process.

We are definitely lifetime custom

As a small landscaping business owner with only an idea, I wanted to legally protect my invention. After looking into websites that claim to complete the patent applications in a matter of minutes at a cut-rate price, I realized the cookie-cutter approach would not provide much protection. I had worked hard on my idea and didn't want it to be only protected by an impersonal website with a lot of flash and little substance. After receiving a great referral and doing my own due diligence researching, I contacted Nicole to help with my invention. Her expertise in intellectual property law helped to skillfully craft my patent application with the legal language necessary to provide true legal protection. Being the first time I dabbled in the intellectual property arena, I had a lot of questions and Nicole was responsive and thorough in her answers. Please check out Nicole if you too are looking for IP legal assistance.

I particularly liked the class Luke gave on general patent issues. That saved me a considerable amount of money in clarifying issues that otherwise would have required one-on-one appointments.

I'll be happy to share my experience with this law firm, actually I feel responsible to other inventors to share my experience. However, I'll do it privately over a cup of coffee. Hopefully the 1 star review is enough for those that are just looking around to get an idea of what they may expect. Edit: 7-20-16 I noticed that this law firm just received 19 five star reviews in the last couple weeks. If you think those are , legitimate unsolicited reviews, you might be a little gullible. Beware of their billing practices.... take a good look at what they bill per hour and they will bill you for time that you can not contest. Fair warning.

I have worked 15 years with Santangelo Law Offices and know most of the staff. I have a couple dozen US Patents and many foreign patents. This is a first rate group. They assist with every aspect of patenting an idea. Early on they help sort out and clarify what is patentable. They do as much as you want or need through the granting of your patent. Their ability to write strong claims is extraordinary, resulting in strong issued patents. They also follow through with ongoing maintenance or other actions as needed.

Now I can see why there are so many positive testimonials about Nicole and her team at SANTANGELO LAW OFFICES. I am very happy with the service Nicole and her team provided during my patent process. I didn't have to worry about anything. I had a great experience. Nicole is very experienced and reliable patent lawyer. She is very professional patent lawyer who is very honest and knowledgeable. Patent process can be challenging sometime but, Nicole and her team made my patent process smooth and easy. I highly recommend SANTANGELO LAW OFFICES, specially Nicole.

David proved incredibly helpful and knowledgable as it related to a Cease and Desist case I was involved in. He explained the issues and options that presented themselves and handled action in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend David or use him again in the future.

Nicole and her team have been invaluable in the patent process for my start up. It's not always clear what, why or how to patent a new idea. And, things evolve quickly in the landscape of both business and patents. Nicole is excellent at guiding opportunities, managing the patent process now and foreseeing opportunities tomorrow. With her expert guidance my business idea has evolved to better work in the market, addressing key factors that help the patentability at the same time. To top it off I've really enjoyed the process and have learned a lot. First time patent applicants as well as repeat applicants would do very well to include Nicole in their new ventures.

My company, RX Automation Solutions, Inc., a small Colorado engineering company, experienced the most extreme Intellectual Property (IP) legal process that can be handed to a small business. In the “IP legal world” this lawsuit went the complete course… from A to Z. RXAS was sued for patent infringement by a much larger entity, which proved over multiple attempts that settlement was not an option for them. Knowing that a very low percentage of patent law suits make it to a trial, it was clear to the Santangelo Team that this case was inevitable. Statistics show the patent holder is usually the victor; which obviously increased the risk for RXAS as our defense was structured. In my opinion, the Plaintiff’s strategy was nothing short of crushing the competition through an expensive, long, drawn out legal battle.
Over the lengthy legal process, the Santangelo Legal Team represented RXAS with a clear understanding of our company size and the legal position needed to defend our case. I personally had the opportunity to work with almost every staff member at any given timeframe during this litigation. Everyone at RXAS, including myself, who was directly involved in this case have the utmost respect for the Santangelo Team’s professionalism and the team approach orchestrated throughout the entire litigation asserted on RXAS. There was no question that the future of my company was in the hands of Santangelo Law Office.
Throughout the 9 day jury trial, the Santangelo Team continued to stack the truth within the legal forum for a major win for RXAS. An approximate 1.5 hour jury deliberation resulted in a Non-Infringement to Claim 1 of the asserted patent… as well as Santangelo invalidating the patent due to a legal constraint called “On-Sale Bar”. A major win might be an understatement.
Looking back today, I’m thankful for every team member Santangelo assembled as part of our defense. Their work ethic, dedication, legal talents and courtroom experience clearly distinguished Santangelo Law Office as a leading law firm. RXAS will always refer and continue to use Santangelo Law Offices for any and all future IP needs.
Yet another Thank You to Luke Santangelo and his colleagues from everyone here at RXAS.

The professionalism and knowledge presented by Luke Santangelo and David Kerr imbued my confidence in the firm. Throughout the patent application process, in a timely fashion, Santangelo attorneys and staff kept me abreast of progress, time lines, any changes in patent laws and all other relevant matters.

After filing paper work myself regarding a copyright troll suite and my filing coming back denied. I called David Kerr to leave a message, as it was late after work hours. Only to have David pick up the phone he attentively listened and calmed my fears. After he responded to the charges of this copyright troll scheme on my behalf, though it took a bit to get it all resolved the suit was dropped. He continued to keep me up dated regarding these trolls for the next two years has the tables turned on them. David was very genuine and caring during this time. Thank you Sir David Kerr for being a man of integrity helping those who get blindsided by scheming trolls.

In 8 years as a client of Luke Santangelo and David Kerr and staff they have helped me to build two high tech businesses. They are direct but personable and remarkably well versed in the energy; molecular and agricultural biotech industries. I highly recommended them!

I interacted with David Kerr and have to say he is the utmost professional and caring Attorney I have dealt with. He really took the time to listen and actually provided help. I deeply appreciate him and would recommend him to anyone needing his expertise.

I have worked with Santangelo Law Offices for over 5 years on more than a dozen patents and the professionalism, integrity, and knowledge displayed while working with them was beyond any expectations. I would not trust any other firm with my IP.

Back in 2011, I was sued by Righthaven, the now-defunct copyright enforcement law firm that brought shakedown copyright infringement lawsuits against small-time bloggers and mom-and-pop web operators. Their business model was predatory. They threatened defendants with the possibility of a $150,000 judgment and the forfeiture of their website's domain name. I had never been sued before and the whole thing scared the bejesus out of me. I didn't know what I was going to do. I looked into hiring legal counsel but most firms wanted between $5,000 to $10,000 in retainer fees. I began researching legal assistance, and contacted a number of law firms to inquire about pro bono legal aid, or possibly reduced-rate representation.

Things weren't going well at first. But I kept researching. I'd read about a lawyer named David Kerr, who had helped an autistic blogger named Brian Hill defeat a Righthaven lawsuit. I contacted Mr. Kerr, an attorney with the Santangelo Law Offices. Mr. Kerr could not represent me pro bono, but he was able to give me legal advice, essentially guiding me through the process of representing myself in the case. I filed a response to Righthaven pro se, and by that time things had started going downhill for Righthaven, and my case, along with 33 others, was thrown out by U.S. District Court Judge John Kane in Denver.

I haven't needed a copyright attorney lately, but if I did the first person I'd contact is David Kerr at Santangelo. The staff at the office was always courteous and professional. My calls were always returned when Mr. Kerr was unable to talk on the phone. I recommend the services of Santangelo Law Offices enthusiastically and with no reservations whatsoever.

After being threatened with a lawsuit by a copyright troll, it was extremely reassuring to be able to rely on David Kerr for assistance. With just a couple of letters, he quickly had the suit dropped, and I've never heard from the trolls again.

I can't imagine a better experience-- especially when dealing with being threatened with a scary lawsuit. They were calm, clear and professional. David Kerr was swift, understood the whole picture very quickly and most importantly, helped us get some bullies off of our back.
I am so glad there are still lawyers like this out there! Highly recommended.

I have spoken with a lot of professionals over the years(attorneys, business men, etc..) I gained more informational and clarity in one meeting with David Kerr at Santangelo Law Offices than I have ever experienced before. Their friendly service, knowledge, and expertise exceeded far beyond my expectations! I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for help with intellectual property.

I worked with Santangelo Law offices on a small project. Without their help, I would not have been able to complete it without serious intellectual property problems.
Attorney Dave Kerr walked me through the potential pitfalls and helped me to determine the best approach to avoiding them. Most importantly to me, I came away with an understanding of how to apply his advice in the future instead of having to ask the same questions every time I develop a product. I would not have pursued my idea without the support I received from Dave.

We've worked with Santangelo for nearly a decade on numerous patents. Thanks to Santangelo we've successfully navigated numerous intellectual property challenges. Senior council at several fortune 500 companies have scrutinized our patents as well and shared how impressed they were, you really can't ask much more than that.

I have worked with Nicole Ressue and Luke Santangelo for >10 years. I have the utmost respect for their professionalism, their creativity and their dedication to their customers. They are cognizant of budgetary constraints and help companies make decisions to leverage intellectual property protection while staying within a limited budget. The ability to draft patents that encompass the current technology and provide room for future growth and development is much appreciated. Moreover, they are just likeable people who make it enjoyable to navigate the IP process.
