Isaac:  Do you have a link to info on what you can do if not patent certified like you were mentioning?  Sorry I'm so naive on this subject, I'm in the middle of law school and this reality just suddenly struck me  Embarassed   Thanks again!

The short of it is that PTO registration is required only for the purpose of representing clients in front of the patent office in patent matters.   While a patent registration number may be a useful credential in pursuing other patent related and IP related jobs, it is not required.  
Attorneys who represent clients in patent infringement cases are not required to have patent registration numbers.  You can find people with UG degrees in history and political science doing patent litigation although the may well be working on a team with a patent attorney.
