Securing intellectual property for ROTOSHOVELTM and its quest to reinvent the shovel

August 18, 2020

A lot has happened since we shared Rick Goren’s story in 2019. Rick and his product were recently featured on WTHR Channel 13. ROTOSHOVELTM is now available on Amazon  and may soon be on the shelves at Costco stores nationwide. Congratulations, Rick and team.

Inventor and entrepreneur, Rick Goren, went outside to install a subwoofer in the ground and looked in his garage for the perfect tool. He found all types of shovels and posthole diggers, but nothing that would save him time and make the work less strenuous. Hanging on his garage wall was a drill with a mortal bit which inspired his idea for the ROTOSHOVELTM brand automatic handheld shovel blade which uses a rotating auger bit that makes digging easier and faster saving time, energy, and costs on gardening and landscape projects.

Rick worked with Woodard attorney, Chuck Schmal to obtain U.S. Patent No. 10,309,160 for his unique shovel design as well as to obtain allowance of a trademark application for the ROTOSHOVELTM brand. The firm congratulates Rick on his patent and, on behalf of all gardeners, thanks Rick for reinventing the shovel.

ROTOSHOVELTM brand automatic handheld shovel TV ads will begin September 23, 2019 on AMC networks and NewsWatch. ROTOSHOVELTM brand automatic handheld shovels will also be available at the Green Industry & Equipment Expo in Louisville, KY October 16-18, 2019.

For more information on the ROTOSHOVELTM brand automatic handheld shovels please visit: ROTOSHOVELTM and view the ROTOSHOVELTMVideo.

What I Learned In My 7 Months of Practice

May 27, 2020

At the time I sit down to write this article, I have been a practicing attorney for a whole seven months. I have learned a lot in this time and want to share some tips that have been helpful to me. Do I recommend you at least consider them? Sure, but as with most everything in life, everyone needs to decide what works best for them. So without further ado, here are my top tips for new attorneys just starting out.

Develop your craft

Often, attorneys want to hit the ground running right out of law school and acquire as many clients as fast as they can. This sometimes includes getting involved in as many groups as you can fit into your schedule. While these are all good things to start developing immediately, the first and most important thing you want to accomplish is becoming a great lawyer. Do not get me wrong, I do not think I have accomplished this in a mere seven months, nor do I think anyone can; the learning curve is just too high. However, it is important to start developing the skills and habits necessary to develop your craft. If you work to obtain the largest client base possible before you actually know what you are doing, you are doing a disservice to your clients and yourself, and you probably won’t have any repeat clients once they figure out you aren’t a great lawyer yet.

There are several things you can do to help develop your skills:
