Suggestion for a good consumer goods patent attorney?

I have read the other patent topics and most of them discuss software patent attorneys or DIY patents/provisionals. I need specific patent advice and want to complete the utility patent with the best resource. Can anyone recommend an attorney that specializes in consumer goods patent filings? If it helps, here's the jist:
The provisional patent was filed almost a year ago with 2 other people before that company was dissolved. I want to pursue the utility patent without the two others named on the patent.
Can you recommend someone? Thanks in advance!

My go-to IP lawyer is Scott Popma (Finnegan.com). Ask for him and tell him I sent you. If he's not right, he'll point you to who is.

Best,

Scott

Todd, where are you located? Seattle? i've worked with one-person firms, small and medium (30 or so attorneys) firms. i would recommend small (4-5 attorneys) or medium firms to get quality expertise and responsiveness and keep costs down. Seed IP in seattle is good (medium+ firm). Graham Lowe Jones (used to be Black Lowe Graham) is a good sm-m firm. chris Douglas is young and i think he's moved to a new firm in seattle, but i'm sure you could find him via linkedin. Graybeal Jackson Haley is a small firm in bellevue wa i've used before. Jeff Haley left and is now doing patent consulting. you can also find him via linkedin.

Todd,

I'm a technology consultant with a small-to-mid-size law firm that specializes in IP and M&A. We work with individual inventors, small-team start-ups, through to Fortune 500 companies and have a pretty strong track-record. I'd be glad to talk with you further about your plans if you'd like to do that.

Thanks,

Chris
