Employing a Patent Attorney
There is no law that dictates you have to use a Patent Attorney to protect new technological rights. Anyone with a reasonable understanding of the process can independently compile and file a patent with the Patent Office.
However just because you can, does not mean you should.
The issue we have in independently compiling and filing a patent is, unless you have the necessary experience and training, you simply will not have enough in the tank to comprehensively compile the content to fully protect the technological rights i.e. prevents a skilled person from circumnavigating around the patent.
