Vance VanDrake is not only an outstanding lawyer but a trustworthy individual who possesses both character and class! As an early stage start-up we knew very little about the legal process much less how to begin to patent an idea. Vance patiently walked us through each step and exceeded our expectations. He explained both pros and cons and clearly advised us based on what was best for us, not looking to his own best interest financially. Vance has now helped us with three patents, one which has been fast-tracked through the patent process and the second quickly to follow! This is all a result of Vance’s knowledge and professionalism that has earned him his reputation. He is a joy to work with and an outstanding human being!
