Champion of the Independent Inventor
Don Kelly has devoted his life to the advancement of small business and the independent inventors who he regards as the backbone of American Ingenuity. Without him, the USPTO and the world in general would still consider us a bunch of useless dreamers.
Don enjoyed a successful career with the US Patent and Trademark Office. With an engineering degree from VA Tech University, he received a Federal appointment as a Patent Examiner, progressing to Supervisory Patent Examiner and Technology Center Director. He served as Chief of Staff to the US Patent Commissioner and was inducted into the ranks of the elite Senior Executive Service.
Chasing his own dream, Don Kelly emerged as founding director of the USPTO’s popular outreach programs in support of independent inventors, scheduling outreach conferences, co-founding the United Inventors Association (UIA), nurturing development of regional inventor associations, creating inventor-focused pages of the USPTO website, fostering inclusion of independent inventor perspectives in USPTO policy making, establishing operational guidelines for monitoring and reporting “bad actors” among invention promotion firms.
He is the founding principal of Intellectual Asset Management Associates, LLC (IAMA) – – an intellectual property law practice and invention commercialization consultancy which is based in Alexandria, VA and Sarasota, FL. www.patentagentplus.com He is registered to practice law as Patent Agent and credentialed as a Certified Licensing Professional.
