two different methods but same result, can this be in single patent?

Basically there are two new methods and display apparatus for achieving the same result. The methods have some similarity and are not completely different.

These could be filled by two different people as different patents and would likely be both granted.
In such scenario can this be a single patent instead filed by one person? Or would there need to be two patents for each method filed by the same person?

Hi Ralph!

The Edison Nation team cannot provide legal guidance on patent matters - our suggestion is to consult with a patent attorney for next best steps.

We wish you the best of luck!

okay, can anyone at least suggest where to get a genuine patent attorney online, since I'm not in US?
