Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with extensive trademark experience. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please give me a moment to formulate a response. Also, please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.
The attorney that claimed your trademark is abandoned does not know what they are talking about or was hoping that you would believe the statement.
In order to enforce your trademark, if the cease and desist letter did not work, you will have to file suit against the infringing party. This act alone may make the infringing party realize that you are serious and they may agree to settle the matter. If not, you do not have to be present in court, only your attorney will need to be present. Also, most courts allow court-call, which allows individuals to conference all in for court hearings.

Yes, the suit should be brought in that state that the infringing party is located in or the state in which the infringing acts occurred (if they happen to be different).
