FAQ: Why shall I hire a patent agent at all?

This is how the USPTO, the biggest patent office in the world, answer the question quote from their webpage: "Inventors may prepare their own applications and file them in the USPTO and conduct the proceedings themselves, but unless they are familiar with these matters or study them in detail, they may get into considerable difficulty."

Mark Twain would say: "You may take out your own appendix, but is it good for you?"
