    To: Inventor Re: Patent Research, Due Diligence, Drafting, Filing Thank you for seeking patent support of your invention, including a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), search, due diligence strategy, drafting, filing, and possibly prosecution. If I have the privilege to work with you, I offer exceptional quality and cost effective patent agent work, including but not limited to your desired noted technology. I can support your presumed micro entity status filing with discussion together to evaluate your best options regarding preparation of an NDA, a search, strategy, drafting, and possible revision, of your provisional application (PA) and/or non-provisional application (NPA). This includes, but not limited to, learning about you, what you already have regarding your patent, like sketches or existing write-ups, and any time constraints that I should know about. From initial writings of what you seek, it appears you possibly desire confirmation for preparation and filing of a PA, and eventually a possible NPA. A search is best to be done first, with a talk together to see what specification and drawing has been already prepared. Given your interest presuming of completing quickly, combined with an unknown budget to complete the work, this can be further discussed at any time that is convenient to you to arrange a reasonable relation between work to be done and your allowable budget. I look forward to helping you in all ways for your patent needs. We can connect by any means at times convenient to you.
