I will give you a brief overview and then show you how to search for patents and trademarks, how you can inspect the online files – all the correspondence with the USPTO for each published patent and trademark – and how to file patents and trademarks online.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office is located in Alexandria, Virginia, near Washington D.C. and is an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Inventors and companies can protect their intellectual property rights like patents, trademarks and designs by filing the corresponding application with the USPTO.

The Patent Act of 1836 created the first official Patent Office in the US – more than 50 years after the first patent was handsigned by then president George Washington in 1790. Today, the USPTO has over 12,000 employees and receives over 600,000 patent applications and more than 500,000 trademark applications each year.

So, what can you do on the website:

You can search for patents: you hover over "Patents", then click on "Patent Search", and then you click on "USPTO Patent Full-Text and Image Database":

If you choose "Basic Search", you can choose the field, e.g. "Inventor Name", type in any name and then get a list of all patents, where this person was inventor. Make sure to use a semicolon between the last and the first name.

You can search for trademarks: you hover over "Trademarks" and then click on "Searching Trademarks". Then you click on the link "Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS)". In the basic search you can enter any trademark name and it will show you all trademarks with that name:

You can inspect the online file, i.e. the whole correspondence between the USPTO and the applicants by searching for a trademark as described above and then clicking on TSDR or directly going to

The same can be done for patents here:

You can file patents online here

And you can file trademarks online here:

However, I strongly suggest that you enlist the help of a patent attorney or trademark attorney to help you with filing these IP rights.
