Anyone ever secured a patent?
Man, this must be my curious day.
Looking for the ins-and-outs, and expected costs/fees related to patent attorneys, and the entire process...
I know I can Google it, but I wanted to see if anyone here (at a trusted, respectable site) had first-hand experience.Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

My son did when he was doing an intership with a major corporation. They paid the fees. There is a lot of expense involved, particularly in researching if such has ever been done before.RayH42450@gmail.com

My dad works for an engineering company and he deals with patent attournies all the time.
Most make anywhere from 150-200 dollars an hour.....
You dont really need an attourney to file a patent though (unless its of some degree of complexity, then it woudl be useful). They are normally used when theres a conflict/legal matter concerning infringment of your patent. Granted the average person probably wouldnt be able to just whip up a patent application. Tons and tons of research required.
I'm really not sure how much it costs to file a patent. For some reason 300~400 dollars sticks out in my head as something ive heard b4 but I could be totaly wrong.
