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

Quoted from this USPTO 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. While a patent may be obtained in many cases by persons not skilled in this work, there would be no assurance that the patent obtained would adequately protect the particular invention." - Patent Offices of other countries around the world say the same thing.
