What are some useful things patent attorneys know that most people don’t?

I think patent attorneys are a rare breed in the legal industry. 

As other answers have already said, they have the uncanny ability to produce a quality patent application perform the necessary research, AND make sure that everything is following the letter of the law. Patent law is one of the most complex areas, and the folks who specialize in it are definitely on their own level.

There are people who try to wade through the patent application on their own, and they quickly realize there’s more to it than simply filing out some paperwork. In my humble opinion—a good patent attorney is worth his/her weight in gold.
