I filed a patent application years ago. I have now received an office action. What should I do?

The US Patent and Trademark office usually sends "office actions" to those who have filed for patent or trademark protection after examining the application. These office actions may contain objection or rejections from the patent office. The USPTO may have problems with your claims, specification or other aspects of your application. There are strict deadlines for replying to office actions, and is important for you to respond quickly. USPatentLaw can help.
