As a first-time “inventor” with only an idea, Mr. Hulsey and his team guided me through every step of the patent process. They answered my questions and filed my application with speed, accuracy, and wisdom. They have changed my family’s lives.

Mr. Hulsey is an outstanding professional. He is straight-forward and knowledgeable. He has tremendous experience in US and international IP issues. Bill and his staff are quickly responsive and take the time to explain the hows and whys of IP law. At the USPTO in DC, he is engaging and expert. I have experience with other firms, Hulsey is by far the most able.
