His care and concern, diligence and professionalism has resulted in accessing examiner's feedback with an interview, and the timely submission of Office Action Response. This couldn't have been done without you Jarrett, Thanks for the leadership, guidance and support.""Jarrett is great to work with, very active and communicative through the entire process.""Jarrett did a great job - helped out huge with a tight deadline and stayed up late to make it happen - def will work with again.""I could not be happier with Jarrett for our patent needs. He was so detail oriented and invested in our project, that he felt like a part of our company. He answered the phone immediately when I was out of state, and needed him to advise on a matter with short notice. He worked with us and tailored to our needs and budget, then stuck to it. Will absolutely be using his services again. Thank you.""Though we’re only halfway complete with my case, Silver Legal’s performance already warrants a glowing review. I approached Jarrett under distressed circumstances around a patent application I had previously filed, and once he reviewed all documents, he somehow managed to revamp and increase my protections immeasurably. He’s been incredibly organized and prompt with his communication and deliverables, and is someone who thinks outside the box in his cases. And while he’s advised me, he has also ensured I remain empowered as the final decision-maker. Jarrett has been personable, professional and willing to work with my unique situation, and I’m deeply grateful I discovered his services. I'm much more confident with my patent filings now. I look forward to bringing him more business in the future.""My experience with Jarrett has been simply great. He was able to grasp the details of the product very easily and provide a revised solution which helped a lot during the response process. I highly recommend him to any startup or for that matter any company out there. I wish him the best.""Jarrett Silver helped me with a patent search, and he definitely over delivered on his promise! He got the results back to me much sooner than expected, and even though they found something similar to my idea, he spent a lot of time explaining everything to me and went above and beyond anything I expected, and never charged above our original agreement. I tried working with another law firm and they were not very responsive at all, which is when I reached out to Jarrett. I highly recommend him, and will be using him for anything else I need in the future. I never thought it could be so easy working with an attorney! Thank you!"
