Customer Question
We are currently looking...

We are currently looking to apply for a trademark for our business and logo. We are trying to determine which is most important to trademark first in the event we can’t do both at the same time?

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the trademark federally registered?

No. We are just now starting the process

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a local attorney? Has anything been filed in court?

Nothing has been filed and we were doing it in legal zoom so we haven’t spoken to a local attorney

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That is all

The logo would be subject to trademark. You also get common Law protection from usage.martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

Would someone be able to use the name outside of the logo if we only applied for a trademark on the logo itself which includes the name?
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 3 months ago
No but I would apply for logo protection and in connection with business practice! Good luck! Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
