Trademark Lawyers For Entrepreneurs
You build amazing brands, we protect them.
Serious about your brand?

Automated online trademark sites typically don’t protect your brand or provide adequate trademark protection. What usually ends up happening: your trademark will likely be filed improperly, then weeks or months later your application will be rejected. We don’t like to point fingers, but getting your trademark should not be a horror story.
If you’re serious about protecting your brand, keep reading.
What happens when your trademark is rejected?
After waiting for several months, you’ll be notified your application is rejected and hit with an office action. If you don’t respond within six months, your trademark is abandoned. All the while, anyone else can file for your trademark and take it. This puts you out of valuable time and money. Don’t be forced to recreate yourself because your trademark was filed improperly.
so How do I protect my brand?
Give us a call. Really, that’s it. We are lawyers and trademarks are what we do. Our goal is to give you more than adequate legal protection to safeguard your trademark and ensure that your brand is yours. We also make sure you’re not infringing on anyone else’s brand. Together we got this!
Ok, so what Do we do differently?
First, we do detailed and comprehensive research to see if there may be issues or risks with your application. Just like painting, 90% of the job is preperation.
What those online trademark mills don’t tell you is that over 50% of trademark applications get refused. Thats why working with an experienced attorney is so important. We save you time, money, and brain pains in the long term.
Within days we have a comprehensive strategy call with YOU to discuss our findings, suggestions, and legal opinions. We also discuss business possibilities and alternatives.
We also promise to keep talking to you. A trademark application from start to finish can take anywhere from 8-14 months. We don’t take your money and run and we don’t make you pay to talk to us.
Within two weeks of signing up, we will have your application completed and submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office… or the USPTO. We file all the paperwork necessary to protect your brand.
All you have to do is give us a call to get started.

let's do this!
how long will it take?
Week 1 – Analyze
Step One. We collect info about your trademark and business.
It is absolutely critical we make sure we get all the details right in order to complete our comprehensive search and best advise you.
We then schedule a strategy call and give you all the details to make an informed decision moving forward. We let you know what classes are best to file in and what risks you may face.
Week 2 – Apply
We prepare and file your application based on the information we collected from you. We provide you with the filing number and what to expect in the coming months!
After we submit your trademark application it takes the USPTO about 3-5 months to file an examiner to review your application.
After the USPTO assigns an examiner they’ll let us know within 1-2 months if they are going to reject or approve your application.
If they find any issues that could stop or delay your application.
Once the examiner decides your application can be registered, it will be published to a USPTO Gazette for thirty days where people can challenge the registration.
It then takes a few months for the USPTO to issue a certification of registration, but once they do we will send you the registration certification and tips for maintenance and enforcement!
