Shaver and Swanson, LLP, our new patent law firm

Scott Swanson, our Paralegal Amy Hennig, and our Office Manager Dicsie Gullick and I recently started a new law firm, to continue our work in patent and trademark law, as well as litigation involving patents and trademarks.  We got my daughter Ciera Shaver to work on the website, and she came up with this cool graphic.  This is a great graphic for a patent law firm, because Scott and I both ride bikes, and arguably, the bicycle is the perfect invention.  If not the ultimate invention, its a pretty darn revolutionary invention.  Our website is located at

The Updated PupRUNNER Pet Trailer

The good folks at PupRUNNER, Ben and Anna Carter, have updated the design of their trailer.  It now has several slick features, but the best is that the trailer folds to almost flat, so storing it is made much easier.  The wheels also come off, with a quick release, so its even easier to store.  As in the earlier version, the floor is in two panels and either or both panels swing up to allow one or both dogs to run or ride.  When the pooch gets tired, the floor swings down, and pooch can ride and still see some scenery.

We have one issued patent on their pet trailer, U.S. patent 8,950,767, and another patent is about to issue on the folding version of the trailer.  The trailer described in these patents attaches to a bike, and has a floor that folds up, so a dog can run inside the trailer for awhile,
