About Us


At Burris Law, our mission is to provide innovative, high quality, and personalized intellectual property services to each and every client.

Our founder, Kelly Burris, has over 28 years of engineering and legal experience. She has a gift  for taking care of our clients and becoming fully  integrated with their teams.


Our office is strategically located in the same building as the Elijah J. McCoy Midwest Regional United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in Detroit, Michigan. With this location, we have ready access to Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) hearings, Examiner interviews, prior art Examiner’s Automated Search Tools (EAST and WEST), USPTO tours, and regular USPTO events throughout the year. Directions to our office can be found here.


We believe that technology brings new dimensions in performance, and that is why we are fully “paperless” with our electronic master files and client tools, including 24/7 access to files through secure web-based portals. We are continually striving to develop new ways to interface and work together with our clients, and we place high importance on face-to- face interactions. No matter where our clients are located, the team at Burris Law visits our client teams on a regular basis to ensure we are working together efficiently and effectively.

In a nutshell, we are a vibrant and enthusiastic team of IP professionals that are eager to try new ways of doing business so that we, along with our clients, can continue to thrive and grow.

“When a great adventure is offered, you don’t refuse it.”
