Why Waters & Associates?

Expertise. Value. Commitment.


Grand Rapids is home to many good attorneys, but most of these attorneys practice in areas other than intellectual property.  For Waters & Associates, practicing intellectual property law is not just something that we do, it is all we do.  We love our local entrepreneurial clients, and we welcome intellectual property clients from across the country and around the globe.


Because we are a smaller firm, we can afford to charge lower rates than many other attorneys of equal caliber.  The cost of living in Grand Rapids is less than New York or Chicago, and we use that to our, and more importantly, your advantage . We believe that our community needs good local attorneys who work for fair pay.  We know what it’s like to run a small business in West Michigan, and our rates reflect this.


We are committed to serving our clients intelligently and diligently using up-to-the minute technology to help us. Patent, Trademark, and Copyright law are cutting edge and quickly changing areas of law.  We are committed to staying on top of these changes to ensure that our clients get the best service that West Michigan has to offer.
