This question already has an answer here:

I know that it is difficult estimate the cost of any particular patent from start to finish. There are so many variables that can affect any single patent application. Certainly there are rough guidelines though?

Is there any source of average costs of getting an idea through the patent system or at least patent attorney cost per hour?
