Dykas Law Offices, PLLC (info@dykaslaw.com) began in Boise in 1985 as Dykas Law Offices, with the goal of bringing high quality, reasonably priced legal service in the fields of technology and intellectual property law to emerging businesses with a need to protect intellectual property of any type.

We specialize in the preparation and prosecution of patent applications, trademark and copyright applications, as well as related licensing. We also do a lot of litigation involving intellectual property law disputes in state and federal courts, and we are experienced in alternate forms of dispute resolution. We have developed a network of foreign search and patent firms in order to facilitate the prosecution of patent and trademark applications throughout the world. Through this network of patent attorneys and agents around the industrialized world, we routinely represent clients in obtaining patents and trademarks worldwide.

  • Excelling in individual areas of expertise to provide each client the full benefit of our knowledge, experience, ability, and effort;
  • Zealously representing our clients’ interests and keeping our clients informed as to the status of all pending matters;
