For Inventors seeking assistance with filing a patent, please click here for the Overview and FAQ. Please note that the application is for patents only. We are unable to assist with trademarks and other Intellectual Property related issues at this time.

For Veterans seeking assistance, please email Fran Robertson at with the subject Veteran Seeking Assistance. If you are a veteran seeking assistance with an MSPB matter, please use the MSPB application.

Please note that filling out an application for assistance does not guarantee that the Federal Circuit Bar Association® will be able to assist you. We rely on a network of volunteers to assist applicants with their pro se matters, and we do not assign attorneys to any case. The Federal Circuit Bar Association® cannot directly represent any party in any pending matters, or with the filing of any forms. If you have any questions, or are having difficulty filling out the online application, please email for guidance and resources.
