Some clients that we’ve helped through the application process…
Gregory was a great help and made the next steps of my process easy to understand.
Their attorney was very respectful and generous by giving very useful information. For the same service, some other attorneys may charge more than far more. It was a great experience for me and I recommend this firm.

What is the difference between a trademark and a copyright?fisherstonelaw12021-02-26T11:50:47-05:00
A trademark is a protection of a word, phrase, or design, registered with the US Patent and Trademark Organization. Trademarks last for as long as they are in use, as opposed to copyrights which have an expiration date. Copyrights protect works from an artist or author, such as books, plays, and music.
Can I trademark a name or phrase?Zachary Hanby2021-02-26T11:45:25-05:00
Yes! You can trademark a name, a logo, or even a slogan. These trademarks will have to be filed separately but businesses like to have federal protections on any branding sources they can. Please be aware that just filing an application doesn’t guarantee it will be approved.

Trademark classes are the designator of what type of product or service your trademark is representing. A barbershop is a different class than an online clothes retailer. A majority of businesses fall into one category; however, it is possible to be grouped in multiple classes. These classes each come with a separate fee.
