Nice deal.  Wish I knew about the deals in Oz.
 
What you need is a bar admission to a state and admission to the USPTO to say you are a patent lawyer.
 
The way to do it is:
 
Come back to the US, do a one year LLM and take state exam.  Most palces requires US citizienship, NY does not.  Thus, most foreigners take the NY bar exam.  Take the PTO bar.  Presto.  Instant patent lawyer.  No US JD required.

 
No state requires US citizenship to take the bar exam.  The Supreme Court has held that it is unconsitutional for states to have such a requirement.
 
Most states do require a JD/LLB from an ABA approved law school.  This is the obstacle faced by foreign educationed bar candidates.  
 
It is additionally the case that the federal government can and does place limitations on foreigners being able to gain registration to the patent bar.  Non citizens have to have a suitable immigration status to take the patent bar.   If the immigration status does not allow permanent residency, the foreign applicant can only get a limited recognition to practice for an employer.   I don't believe the limited recognition allows you to call yourself a patent agent or a patent attorney.

Typical Persian.  It's all about the money to impress other Persians.

I have a car with almost 170,000 miles on it.  It starts every morning, even in sub-zero weather.
 
Is that better or worse than costing $170,000?   Wink

I have a car that has about the 170K on it and is just about 15 years old.  Given that it's primary function is to sit in the "Park & Ride" lot and not get broken into while I'm at work, I don't see a $170k car serving quite as well.

I have no car at all - public transportation gets me where I need to go, or, if necessary, a rental car
 
cars are really not that essential as personal possessions - depending on where you choose to live, of course
