    I know of someone with a BRILLIANT IDEA/ PRODUCT! There is nothing like this on the market and I'll bet that it will be, huge! They need to consult with an attorney, to protect themselves and their idea/product. Any suggestions, would be appreciated!:D

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    Patents aren't exactly easy to acquire. My husband has a boatload of patents. He is so knowledgeable about the process that he submits them himself, sans attorney.

    Sounds like your acquaintance is a noob. I'd suggest a patent attorney. Don't know of any south of ATL. Hubby's sister is the patent attorney for a major corporation in Wisconsin, but that wouldn't work for someone where you live.

    Good luck to your acquaintance !

    This gentleman spoke at a luncheon I attended several months back. He seemed personable and knowledgeable. http://www.nevinshaffer.com/

    Good luck!

    I looked him up on the Florida Bar web site, and they list him as the only Intellectual Property lawyer in the Panhandle. While there's something a little snake oil about his web site, if you're handling IP issues down here, you have to actually be fairly decent at handling some pretty complex stuff because you're probably going to be doing a fair amount of DoD work.

    Give Peter Loffler a call. He is out of Fort Walton Beach and is currently working on a trademark for our company. His number is 850-729-1520. Good luck with the idea!
