DIY Trademark Search and Registration

Are you attempting to get a trademark yourself? There are many businesses that promise cheap and easy to do trademark filings. The super low prices are attention grabbers. You figure, "how hard could it be to file for my trademark myself?" Then, you head on over to; reach the trademark search bar, then type in the name of your business or slogan. Nothing appears in the search results, so you feel that you are good to go.

You don't think anything else of the search, and you continue with publicizing your brand name and slogan. Then, comes the day: you've either received a "cease and desist" letter from another brand with the same or confusingly similar name; or you've received an "office action", "statement of use", "declaration of use", or some other official notice from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It's scary! You don't know what to do! You begin searching for trademark attorneys and lawyers, and their receptionist tells you that you have to pay for a consultation or they quote you a large amount to take over your trademark application. You begin to think that it's expensive for a trademark attorney or lawyer!

The truth is, that do-it-yourself trademark filings are more expensive than initially paying a trademark attorney or lawyer. Filing for a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office is an official process and it is very technical. Mistakes when filling out your application can result in more filing fees. Office actions are official legal responses.

You don't have to fill out your trademark application alone! If you need assistance with a trademark, do not hesitate to contact us at: To learn more about the benefits of trademarks, click the "Learn More About Trademarks" button below.
