My name is Dan Bell.
I teach engineers and paralegals who perform litigation and prosecution services for lawyers in the USA and Europe. The courses are online, so the students can be anywhere in the world. If you are thinking of using low cost offshore resources, selecting a partner can be difficult. A low price does not necessarily mean the best value. Why not test providers to determine their capability before picking a partner?
Why not select a provider that has certified their resources to perform whatever services you plan on utilizing? You don't need to reinvent the wheel. I have been involved in patent process design, certification and quality management for patent prosecution and litigation since 2007.
Although I am a patent lawyer, I will not be acting as your lawyer so do not send any confidential information
to me. To learn more about my testing, teaching, and consulting services, my legal process design
services, or my patent analyst certification courses,

I had the privilege of spending the last 4 weeks of my father’s life with him. My father led a very interesting life full of passion and experience. He was one of the most successful people I ever knew. He had almost no interest in amassing money, though he had as much money as he needed to live life according to his own design. My father was a Jesuit trained scholar. The smartest people I ever knew said he was smartest man they ever knew. In his entire education including his PHD and MD, he received all As and one B. Success for him was running 30 or so marathons at the outer edge of his capability, skiing down a double diamond at the edge of control, cooking a bowl of chili so hot your eyes ... read more
