Is it a good idea to first try to submit a patent yourself, and it doesn't work, then go to a patent lawyer?

I am the creator of PatentWizard provisional patent application software ( www.PatentWizard.com ). I tell inventors they should only self-draft if they feel completely comfortable with disclosing their invention. If you are going to self-draft, I only recommend self-drafting a provisional patent application and not a non-provisional patent application. If you decide to self-draft, get a commercial software product to assist you and have a patent attorney review your work. See the FAQ section of www.patentwizard.com for more information about provisional patent applications.
I wish you the best!

Hi Silly Dude, I actually was in like in your similar situation months ago. I was able to sign up at http://www.patexia.com/ where I was able to network with professional when it comes to patents and like field. Even the USPTO encourages to hire a lawyer that will help you in all the process but it will still up to you if you will. Good luck and see you at patexia!

There's a lot of people that feel passionately about this subject. To me, I don't know if I know enough about the law to navigate it myself. I would probably need someone to help me with the find print. A lawyer for me would be a good idea. http://boothudall.com/patent-attorney-tempe
