Marlton, NJ (PRWEB) January 26, 2009
Stuart M. Goldstein, partner and founding shareholder of the law firm of Hollstein Keating Cattell Johnson & Goldstein PC, and patent, trademark, and intellectual property expert, has been successful in securing approval from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a new revolutionary patent that truly is a drain hero.
The 'Drain Hero,' developed by Nicelife, Inc., of Burlington, New Jersey, unclogs sinks, tubs, and showers as well as retrieves jewelry, valuables and coins from these drains. The uniqueness of this invention makes it is easy to use, effective and versatile.
When wedding rings and other valuables fall down the drain, getting stuck in the trap, or when the drain becomes clogged, the Drain Hero is a lifesaver. Simple to use, all that is required is to attach a wet/dry vac to the Drain Hero and place it over the sink drain. Used as a built-in adapter, the Drain Hero works with most all wet/dry vac manufacturers; hose sizes 1 1/4", 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" with a 2.5 peak HP or greater. In addition to its ease of use, the Drain Hero comes with many benefits. It saves time and money - no need to take the trap apart and incur possible leaks when reassembling the pipe. No mess or scratching of hardware and sinks. No damage to pipes that may occur with power snakes. No need to use acid solutions - and that makes the Drain Hero eco-friendly.
Robert Petner of Nicelife, Inc., is wildly enthusiastic about his invention. Says Mr Petner, "Simplicity of design is key to product usefulness and durability. In the patent process, these factors can be an extreme challenge. With Stuart's expertise, we have not only created an affordable, durable, eco-friendly drain solution, but our product is protected intellectually as well. In this competitive market you need every advantage."
It is through Mr. Goldstein's patent and intellectual property expertise in matters involving a variety of industrial and consumer products as well as equipment and systems within the mechanical, electrical, and marine disciplines that make him the patent attorney clients seek out in order to receive patent protection for their creative products and improvements.
Mr. Goldstein oversees Hollstein Keating's southern New Jersey office's Intellectual Property Department, specializing in patent and trademark law. Mr. Goldstein's solid background, experience, and technical knowledge in the mechanical, electrical-mechanical, and marine arts began with his B.S. in Marine Engineering from the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York in 1972. For six years, he worked as a patent examiner in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, D.C., attaining primary examiner status. Since 1978, he has been registered to practice before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as a patent attorney (Registration #22817), handling patent application prosecution and related litigation.
As a specialist in the patent field, Mr. Goldstein advises manufacturers, businesses, and individuals on product design, development, and integrity, guiding them efficiently through the complex patent approval process. Says Mr. Goldstein, "If it is new and useful, if it can be made, if it has potential value, it should be patented. When you are looking to protect your original invention or improvement on existing technology, when you are looking to secure intellectual property ownership rights, when you are looking to safeguard future commercial success, the goal is to protect your patent ownership rights. Over the years, I have seen the consequences of not obtaining patent protection, of opportunities lost, and the loss of investment, time, energy, marketing possibilities and ownership. With patent protection, your creative product or improvement becomes your exclusive property. And the rewards that come with it can be enormous."
Mr. Goldstein's representative patent areas include all types of mechanical and electrical products and improvements, methods and systems: for example, construction tools and equipment, cleaning tools and appliances, electrical lighting and switches, household appliances, plumbing and electrical tools, appliances and related equipment, hardware and gardening tools, conveyor systems, automotive products and accessories, vessel and marine-related products and systems, recreational and leisure-related products, and medical devices and appliances.
Among the newest technical patents that have received patent approval through Mr. Goldstein's professional guidance includes the Bow Mounted Vessel Propulsion System (U.S. Pat. No. 7,096,810), which is a practical, effective, and efficient vessel propulsion system that addresses the limitations of prior propulsion systems, by reducing hull surface drag, enhancing fuel efficiency, and increasing vessel speed and maneuverability. The Conduit Rack Electrical Junction Box (U.S. Pat. No. 7,022,912) provides for a more efficient installation and use in suspended conduit racks. Invented by a licensed electrician for use within the construction industry, this invention accepts runs of protective conduit in conduit rack systems without interfering with the horizontal run of the conduit. This improvement eliminates the need for bending runs of conduit, saving time, material costs and labor. The Bimini Twist Jig (U.S. Pat. No. 7,011,346) offers a simple, easy to use product that always results in the tying of a perfect Bimini twist - considered to be the most important knot in fishing. The Eyeglass Display and Demonstration System (U.S. Pat. No. 6,988,799) is a convenient and practical system that allows the eyeglass wearer to visualize how a given pair of glasses will actually look with any given lens shape and tint before the lenses are fitted in the frames.
