"I hired The Rapacke Law Group to help protect my card game invention with a copyright and trademark. Andrew's team was wonderful in answering all my questions and get my invention protected. I highly recommend working with Andrew, and we definitely will be using him with my next invention. He provided excellent advising in the lead up to producing my prototype and assisted be reviewing all of my paperwork before filing for formation of my LLC. His expedient and thoroughly efficient approach has directly contributed to the foundation of my thriving new business."
"Andrew is a great intellectual property attorney. He's very transparent on price and was very thorough with the provisional patent. He made all the changes I asked for before we filed the patent and he runs a truly fixed fee intellectual property law firm. Other lawyers want to nickel and dime you for every change you make, which can be extremely difficult to pay for inventors just starting out or on a budget. He was easily accessible as well. If he missed my call, I would get a call back within an hour or two. It was a great experience overall and if you are looking for an intellectual property attorney I would highly reccomend you look no further than The Rapacke Law Group."
"Andrew introduced himself to me at a Toy Fair in Chicago. We talked briefly about some projects that I was working on the time, but I already had representation. Andrew offered to give me some advise on a pending patent. I was impressed with his knowledge of the patent process. I hired him to help me with an office action on that same patent. I also hired Andrew to help me put together a Licensing Agreement. I feel that Andrew does a very good job of looking at the agreement from both sides of the fence. He has good judgment and wants to guide you, so that your expectations are realistic."
"I hired Andrew to assist my company with a patent infringement and non provisional patent filing. Andrew is very knowledgeable and easy to work with, and his pricing is very transparent and straightforward which I like. He was also very accessible which I needed during a critical time for my company. I'd definitely recommend and will hire again!"
"Andrew helped our company to apply for a Trademark registration and a Patent. He is always available to answer any questions without charging extra fees for phone conversations or emails. We are very satisfied with the services his firm provided and would definitely recommend Andrew. Thank you!"
