What is Pro Se Assistance?
If you want to hire professional assistance to file and prosecute your own patent applications, or if you have hit a roadblock, we offer patent services to help you. Professional services are highly recommended. Patenting is complex. Even for self help assistance, Carson Patents recommends you hire a professional from the start. However, we are happy to review and provide mark-ups, comments, and expert tips and advice to help you along the way. Note: the USPTO advises the use of professional patent practitioner help, just like we do.
Important DIY TIP: The Manual of Patent Examining Procedure (MPEP) from the USPTO contains explanations with references to the statutes (laws) and regulations for all aspects of patent application filing and prosecution. The MPEP describes the proper process, format, and rules for patent applications/claims.
