Seismic Industry Patents Lawyer — Houston, Texas
Representing Individual Inventors — Startups — Established Companies

From my office in Houston, Texas, I have helped a variety of clients to maintain and enforce their intellectual property rights through defending their patents. I understand that the business goals and legal needs of an individual inventor are different from those of a startup company or an established technology company. I am experienced in representing a wide variety of clients and will tailor my services to your needs, rather than applying a “one-size fits all” approach.

Foreign (non-U.S.) companies and law firms:

File U.S. patent applications under the Paris Convention, Chapters I or II of the PCT, or by direct national filings. Determine whether any of your products or services infringe existing U.S. patents and whether any U.S. patents of your competitors are valid and enforceable.

Individual inventors:

I encourage potential clients before they spend any money to make a search on the United States Patent and Trademark Office web page. A market search is also helpful. There are certain steps that all clients should take to protect their inventions, depending on the situation. The results you have obtained from the USPTO patent search will show you the wide range of inventions I dealt with. The most difficult inventions I handled originated from the oil and gas industry: land and water seismic tools and methods of using them.

Established companies:

I can provide you with intellectual property advice related to seismic engineering patents, based on my years of specialized experience. Strengthen your business and protect yourself from competitors with a patent gap analyses.


If you are handling a case requiring expertise in seismic engineering patents, I can provide you with assistance, including infringement opinions and validity opinions.


Michael Breston takes an active interest in and provides individualized service to each client, no matter how large or how small, because he recognizes that every invention is unique and deserving of special attention.

Typical issues are:

QUESTION: "Is my competitor’s patent valid?  If it is, do I infringe this competitor’s patent?"

MY ANSWER: In the case of infringement and if it is not an invalid patent, I can help negotiate a license, if available, or other business solution.
