As a nonprofit legal services organization, PVLA typically charges a nominal Application Fee to our PA Patent pro bono clients to help support the work that we do and to ensure that our services remain available to the inventor community at large. These fees are adjusted based on the type of client (i.e. individual or organization), as well as the level of service requested.  These fees are non-refundable, and are not collected until a client’s eligibility for pro bono service has been confirmed. A breakdown of the various application fees is provided below:

  • Patentability Review – $50 per consultation
  • Full Service Representation (Individuals) – $75 per representation
  • Full Service Representation (Small Businesses) – $175 per representation

NOTE: Due to the financial impact of COVID-19, all PA Patent client application fees have been waived for the foreseeable future.
