During my 48 years of working for a large Japanese automotive company I have had the opportunity to work with many talented professionals. I discovered Mike Priddy of MP Patents, LLC during the development phase of a very unique project. additive. It was a material that could be added to drilling mud for the oil & gas industry. This additive allowed radio waves to be carried through the mud for very high speed communication, data & command links. I carried this similar technology to be applied to highway stripe paint for smart highways. We were awarded a patent US10959071B1 in what I thought was record time. Mike structured the patent and patent language in such a manner that the patent office review team could easily understand our technology and its application. Any engineer or non-engineer seeking to patent their ideas I highly recommend Mike Priddy without hesitation, he exemplifies professionalism. His devotion and attention to detail allowed this patent to be awarded after less than 2 years of process. Leo Hayes, CTO, Hayes Advance R & D, LLC, Colorado.
