1. WHAT IS A TRADEMARK?
A trademark is a legally protected symbol, phrase, design, or combination thereof, that identifies and distinguishes a particular product or service from those of its competitors. It can be any word, name, logo, slogan, or other unique identifier that helps consumers recognize and differentiate a product or service. Examples of well-known trademarks include brand names like LOUIS VUITTON , and logos like Nike's swoosh. Trademarks can be registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to give trademark owners exclusive rights to use their mark in connection with certain goods and services.
2. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO REGISTER YOUR TRADEMARK WITH THE UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE?
Having a federally protected trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office is like having a "NO IMITATION" sign on your brand, letting others know that you're the real deal and you mean business! You will gain protection across the entire United States. A registered trademark gives you the ultimate super power to protect your brand's unique identity and to take legal action against infringement and unauthorized use. It is like the VIP pass to the exclusive club of legitimate and credible businesses who are serious about building legacies that last.
3. MY TRADEMARK COVERS MULTIPLE CLASSES. WHAT IS THE FEE?
When it comes to applying for a trademark registration that covers multiple classes of goods and/or services, our law firm charges an additional cost of $500 per class.
4. DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

4. WHAT IS A SPECIMEN?
A specimen is a real-world example of how you are using the trademark in connection with your goods and/or services. Many trademark applications are jeopardized due to the submission of an improper specimen. We will work with you to strategically compile the best possible proof of your trademark use.
5. WHAT IS AN OFFICE ACTION?
An office action is an official letter sent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). In it, an examining attorney lists any legal problems with your chosen trademark, as well as with the application itself. You must resolve all legal problems in the office action before the USPTO can register your trademark. You must respond to the Office Action within 6 months or your application will be considered 'abandoned.'
6. WHAT IS A PROCEDURAL OFFICE ACTION?*
A procedural office action usually consists of minor administrative issues. Generally, the Examining Attorney will ask that these issues be corrected in order for your trademark to be successfully advance to toward Opposition.
7. WHAT IS A SUBSTANTIVE OFFICE ACTION? AND, WHY ARE THEY NOT INCLUDED IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGE PRICE?
A substantive Office Action occurs when an examining attorney raises legal rejections as to why your trademark cannot be registered. Very often, an examining attorney may claim that the proposed trademark is confusingly similar to an existing registered trademark; it is merely descriptive or it lacks the necessary distinctiveness required to achieve registration. Responses to these Office Actions usually require in-depth legal research and putting forth a persuasive and substantive legal argument citing statutory and/or case law. Our law office will not be in the position to judge the scope of work required to respond to such an Office Action until it is received.
Substantive Office Actions will be billed separately based on the scope of work.
