Lenny Lipton, Inventor
Steve combines a rare gift for digging out the essence of an invention with a determined methodology for working with the patent office. I’ve worked with other patent attorneys in the past and Steve makes a grueling process easier. He is also cost-conscious and has worked with me to find the least expensive ways to get good results. He is a great guide to help with navigating the complexities of a daunting process.
Steve Smyrski is an excellent patent attorney and one of the most personable people I know in this field. He was a great help to me on patent prosecution matters when I was in-house counsel at Advanced Medical Optics. Steve’s litigation background and experience are invaluable when he prepares and prosecutes patent applications, and provides counsel on patent matters, and the results were excellent. I recommend Steve highly to anyone in need of a patent counsel as his services are truly value added.

Steve is an excellent attorney with top notch legal and technical skills. He is extremely responsive, making him a pleasure to work with, and always provides practical and effective legal advice.
I have had the opportunity to work with Steve in a large matter involving patent litigation in the context of a critical corporate deal for one of our clients. Steve’s diligence and his “bedside manner” were key to our success.
Steven is one of the best in his field: his work is careful, insightful, and of consistently high quality. I learned much from working with him, and would recommend him without hesitation.
I have known Steve both during his time at Pillsbury and subsequently in the context of his private practice. Steve is a talented, outside-the-box thinker who combined in-depth scientific knowledge with seasoned legal thinking. He objectively weighs both legal and business interests when advising his clients, working efficiently and effectively to achieve his clients’ goals.
I had the good fortune to work with Steve at Pillsbury. Steve was, and is, a model attorney; diligent, sensitive to client issues, and extraordinarily intelligent. I recommend Steve without reservation to anyone in need of his services; you don’t get better attorneys than Steve.
