P&E Services is a home-based business that prepares and prosecutes patent applications. Although we're small, 20% of our work is for a Fortune 500 company. We do everything from start to finish including the patent search, writing the application, drawings, filing the application, and prosecuting the application until you get your patent. Once your patent issues, we can help you with your maintenance fees. We can also create a website to help promote your invention.
