I will provide a quote based on $100/hour for the work needed, considering complexity.
My utility patent application preparation fee usually ranges from $2000-2500 including formal drawings. The Patent Office filing fee is $400 (lowest tier). My basic search fee is $400 if you want that. My argument fee is usually $600 per argument. My issue fee is $200, and the patent office issue fee is currently $240.
When comparing my fees to other practitioners, make sure to compare apples to apples. What do they include (drawings, patent office filing fee, etc.)?
US Patent Office (USPTO) fees depend on the "size" of the applicant -- micro, small, or large. "Micro" applicants make less than about $169,000 yearly, and have filed less than 5 previous patent applications, or are educational institutions, or where the invention is or will be assigned to an educational institution. USPTO fees are subject to change.
Normally you file either a utility or design application -- not both -- but sometimes both can be obtained. Sometimes it is beneficial to file a provisional application, followed within a year by a utility application.
