What Our Clients Are Saying
"This firm went over and above to try and help me. They were patient with my concerns and indecisiveness. They were very thorough explaining how the process would work and were even willing to work with me through everything. The Professionalism was outstanding from everyone I spoke with on his team! I highly recommend The Rapacke Law Group."
"Great communicators. Great service!"
"Ben and Andrew were very helpful throughout the entire trademark application process. The team is extremely knowledgeable and they took time to explain each part of the process to me. I’m glad that I was able to work with this team to get my app startup trademark submitted."
"I started looking for a patent attorney over a year ago. I asked everyone. Many were attorneys. The response I got was usually, sorry...no. It’s a very specialized practice. No attorney wanted to recommend anyone, And my friends had no ideas either. I called a few from google searches. And I got a bit of an education. Basically it was going to be very expensive. How much? I got numbers for provisional patents starting at $5000 but to expect more like $15,000+. And $15,000 for Non provisional Patents but to expect it to be $100,000+. (And you still may not get it) I even looked into doing it myself...(nope!) After that I gave up on the patent idea for awhile. As a start up we just couldn’t gamble on a maybe. However, we finally got to the point that we needed some sort of protection. I thankfully found ANDREW RAPACKE’s law firm on Google. They were offering a set fee. I called. Spoke to Benjamin. He went over everything. All my options. We came to the conclusion we needed a non provisional patent. How much? $10,000.00. All in. I thought he was kidding. I did some due diligence on the firm and after a few days we hired them. Everyone was terrific. All our questions were answered. The work they did was great. They worked quickly. They went above and beyond for us. We are very happy with our new patent attorneys."
"Andrew always responds quickly, answers all your questions thoroughly, gives full details, and works very quickly and accurately. He clearly cares about who he works with as he was always nice and asked about my day. This is exactly what I want in a lawyer: someone who is effective, quick, responsive and personable. FIVE STARS - HIGHLY RECOMMEND"
"I absolutely LOVE dealing being a client at The Rapacke firm. I deal mostly with Benjamin Bedrava, who is the epitome of professional and attentive. When I started my application process a couple years back, Andrew Rapacke himself handled my 1rst application and again, an absolute pleasure to work with. EVERYone I've talked to in the firm maintains the same level of professionalism, friendliness and attentiveness. I find their fees fair as well."
"I have filed trademarks on my own in the past, but the process has gotten more complicated and confusing. If I filled in something incorrectly, I might not know about it for many months. Benjamin at Rapacke spent a good bit of time in multiple phone calls learning about my business, explaining important details about trademarks that I did not find online, reviewing my website, and discussing strategies for making my trademark strong. Then he completed the submission and I am on my way to owning the name I chose. This is a superb resource."

- "Andrew and Ben helped us through a 2 year long tedious litigation battle that has finally come to a conclusion. Couldn't be happier with Rapacke law!"
I was considering trying to go at it alone but I'm so glad I hired them. They listened well and helped tremendously... and for a fair price.
The Rapacke Law Group was exceptional to work with! I had a concept for a patentable invention and was initially overwhelmed by both the patent process and the expenses I anticipated I would incur. The patent lawyers and patent agents at the Rapacke Law Group walked me verbally through the process and ensured I knew the major milestones and what to expect. In addition to this information, they demonstrated that their pricing schedule was quite different from the majority of the industry and came in at approximately half of what I had expected to pay. I decided to utilize this firm and had no regrets from the very beginning. The patent agent was very thorough and had no issues asking questions on areas he was unfamiliar with. Version control was easy as we passed documents back and forth and when I was satisfied with the complete packet they submitted it in a very timely manner. All of the documentation, drawings and technical write-ups were completed in a matter of weeks. (And to be honest, I was the one that slowed the process down since it normally took me several days to respond)Overall, I believe I may have been able to accomplish all of these tasks myself but they would have taken me at least 6 months and I know there would have been errors. The small fee I paid this exceptional firm purchased me not only a quality patent submission but enormous peace of mind. There truly are no downsides or negative interactions I experienced through all of my interactions with the lawyers and agents. A more than fair price coupled with active communication and quality work all combine to make this a "go to" law group in my opinion. Interact with peace of mind because you're in good hands!
"Andrew and Ben form a fantastic team! They have helped me with my patent and trademark, they are always available to answer your questions, they are very professional and cost effective!"

Thank you so very much for your assistance Rapacke Law Group!"
We brought an idea to Andrew and his team. After the consultation, we agreed to move ahead. Once the process began they went way above, and beyond. I will use them again for everything moving ahead. They are what every group should be. Professional and everything was done perfect from step one.

"We have been working with Rapacke Law Group for just over a year. They set up our LLC and have managed our Trademark Application process. Andrew and Benjamin have been great to work with - helpful, thorough and patient with my questions. Our initial application received an office action (which from the research I did in advance of choosing a lawyer I understand is not uncommon). My husband and I were both very impressed with the response to the office action AND it was approved. We are very excited to be in the final stage of having our mark registered with the USPTO! For anyone reading this, getting a mark registered can be a long process, but if you put your trust in Rapacke Law Group and have a little patience, you'll be thrilled with the outcome."

Thanks, Rapacke Law Group."

"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.

It was a great experience overall and if you are looking for an intellectual property attorney I would highly recommend you look no further than The Rapacke Law Group."

He has good judgement and wants to guide you, so that your expectations are realistic."

"Andrew has been a trusted resource for me on legal topics relating to my business and other areas as well. His ethics have been without reproach. Recently he passed on working with at least one prospective client because of ethical concerns that could have materialized down the road (he didn’t share the specifics).

Rather than getting stuck with multiple surprise bills and expensive office action reports I was given one fair price upfront. This was much appreciated especially as it allowed me to budget properly. I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to other companies."
"I used The Rapacke Law Group for an initial project a few months ago and have since used them several times.

"Whether one of my current clients needs a referral for patent and/or trademark or copyright work or a business acquaintance needs some guidance, I know I can refer them to Andrew with confidence. Each client that I have referred to Andrew has returned with positive feedback regarding his professionalism, availability and genuineness to the project. I'm careful as to who I refer out as I feel it is a direct reflection on my work product as well which is why with Andrew, I have no hesitation."
