My goal for every client is to provide:
- a realistic assessment of the situation,
- your options, and
- the pros and cons of each option.
When I do those things, you are in the best position to decide on the best next step, and I am in a better position to keep helping you toward that next step. That approach is why clients trust me. Below is what some inventors have said about working with me, which should give you a rough idea of what to expect if you choose to work with me.
“James is awesome, he has helped me with a couple patent applications. He’s extremely competent in what he does with fair prices. He won’t just tell you what you want to hear, and he is very good at understanding his client’s inventions, which is apparent when you read his prepared applications.” – Casey Mongoven (see review on Google Maps)
“We found James because we were super frustrated with our original patent attorney in Los Angeles. Let me tell you, I’m so glad we switched. James only had a few days to finalized our trademark and only a few weeks to file our final utility patent application. Patent law is not easy, but he puts it in terms that makes it easily understandable. James is truly one of the best attorneys I’ve worked with. He’s super smart, easy to talk to, VERY responsive, fast and detailed oriented. I will not only use him again, but I will refer him to anyone looking for a great attorney!” – Kimberly (see review on Avvo)
“When we first started our search for a patent attorney we had huge hopes that our idea was going to be well received by the attorneys we had found locally. Well we were wrong. We got responses from other attorneys and firms that were discouraging, some didn’t even understand what it was that we wanted to accomplish. It wasn’t that we had a flawed idea, but rather we hadn’t found a attorney or firm that had the experience. When we found James all that changed. From our first meeting James understood our ideas and the vision we had for them. All the way through all of our patent processes James and his firm have been top notch! James and his team have always given us great guidance, they developed a strategy that would be our best chance for protecting our ideas. With James as our attorney in a very short time we completed 4 strong patents and we are currently working on new patents including additions to existing patents. If you are in the shoes I once was, get a consultation with James he will get you on the best path. If you currently have patents and are looking for a more dedicated and extremely smart patent attorney. James Yang is the patent attorney I would chose again if given the chance.” – Andrew Zimmer (see review on Google Maps)
“Simply put, James is incredible. The unknowns that come with going through the patent application process can conjure up a lot of questions and concerns. Sitting down with James was the best part of the process. He goes above and beyond to answer questions and concerns and simplify the process… The most important aspects of James that should be highlighted are his honesty, knowledge, and his passions for finding the best solutions for his clients.” – Michael Lee (see review on Google Maps)
“James is very knowledgeable on mechanic applications. Provide good advices and made it clear on first meeting about how his firm charges. His professionalism earned my recommendation.” – Jack Chen (see review on Google Maps)
“I was so unclear and had many questions about the patent process. James walked me through the process and answered all my questions in a professional and simple way so that I was able to understand it. I highly recommend James to everyone.” – Daniel Truong (see review on Google Maps)
“James is incredible. I am so fortunate that he was referred to me. My experience with his professional services have been top notch. His work is outstanding and the communications between us were and still are open and productive. James is genuine. I trust his ability and know that any time I work with him he has my best interest in mind. Because of this, I would never even dream of working with any other patent attorney. I live in California and have referred him to associates in Florida. He is two thumbs up! Thank you James. You truly are the very best!” – Dianne (see review on Avvo)
” James was and still is an immense help and a fountain of knowledge helping us to navigate the murky waters of understanding patents and associated regulations, protections, and licenses. I highly recommend working with him to pursue your idea / project to get to patent pending and beyond.” – Mike McMan (see review on Google Maps)
“James was very kind and helpful in explaining everything and answering all of my questions. I highly recommend him to anyone that is interested in patenting their idea, but have no idea where to start.” – Makoto Smith (see review on Google Maps)
“I started working with James in 2009. He wrote a utility patent for an innovation to a consumer product. James was very diligent and professional. The patent examiner of course rejected claims as they always do. I was on the conference call when James spoke with the examiner to address the examiner’s concerns. James did an excellent job of communicating our position and view of the prior art. He ultimately was able to overcome the examiners objections. I was very impressed and think it could not have gone better. Anybody who has gone through the patent process knows how much information can go behind one small sentence. James identified what to focus on and communicated it well.
“I should note that this particular patent at one point had three IP attorneys involved because of one of the partner’s previous relationships. James was the clear winner based on skill and trust.
“Trust is paramount between an IP attorney and the client. Trust, in my opinion, trumps all else. I will use James and his firm for future patents and IP related advice.” – Arthur (see review on Avvo)
