Eric Hansocm Drone pilot Patent Attorney


Our office combines new internet-based services, such as Docketus™ and internet video conferencing to allow our clients immediate access to information regarding their case or cases and enable us to more efficiently communicate with our clients by eliminating the need for parties to travel to meetings. While continuing to provide face to face interaction and attention to our clients’ needs. We have chosen to integrate a virtual office into our practice because it opens up yet another way we may serve our clients both in the states and abroad. It will also allow us to reduce our dependence on paper-filled transactions and gas guzzling travel to meet in person. We hope that these small steps to reduce our carbon footprint will result in a positive impact on our environment.

Entrepreneur: Eric founded the Law Offices of Eric Hanscom in 1995 as a sole practitioner. Since beginning his practice he has added the legal talents of Todd Langford and formed long-lasting associations with numerous foreign attorneys and law firms and has grown his business into an international practice that has allowed for small business individual attention to our clients while offering many large business amenities.

Inventor: Eric has not only filed applications advocating his clients marks and inventions, he has also tapped into his own imagination and ingenuity to solve common problems that he has faced in his everyday life. As a holder of several different patents, Eric brings a unique perspective to all the intellectual property that he handles. In other words, Eric understands what it is like to be an inventor. While many law firms are without a single patent attorney with an invention to his or her name, Eric is listed as an inventor on 8 separate patents.

He has spent most of his life within a mile or two of the Pacific Ocean and has always enjoyed and appreciated the ocean. As a teenager, Eric competed in surfing and took 2nd place in the 1980 ASA California State Surfing Championships. Before dedicating himself to Patent law, Eric excelled at surf kayaking and was the 1988, 1989, and 1990 Surf Kayak World Champion.

Environmental Advocate: Accompanying his love for the ocean, environmental activism has always been a part of Eric’s life, from an internship with the Environmental Defense Center in Santa Barbara, to the Sea Turtle Project in Bahia De Los Angeles in Baja, to his current work as a volunteer helping with English translation of signs for Thailand’s National Park System and his Thailand Lands Project.
