    Why Choose Michael Priddy, Patent Agent

    Michael Exclusively Practices Patent Protection

    Unlike patent attorneys, patent agents do not represent clients in court proceedings or prepare legal documents unrelated to patents. Patent agents are solely focused on obtaining patent protection.

    Patent Agents, like Patent Attorneys, have passed the Patent Bar through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

    Michael’s extensive experience as a Patent Examiner earned him a waiver of the U.S. Patent Bar Examination. Michael nevertheless challenged the Patent Bar Exam in 2011 and passed on his first attempt.

    He is registered with the USPTO and licensed to secure patents on behalf of his clients.

    Patent agents are required to have an education in technical subjects like engineering science. 

    Michael earned a B.S. in Engineering Science and Mechanics from Virginia Tech concentrating in biomedical engineering. He also earned a B.S. in Mathematics from Metropolitan State University of Denver focusing on theoretical mathematics. Michael’s technical qualifications help him serve a diverse set of industries and patent seekers.

    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.
