Hello again - I met with the lawyer yesterday - it is a rather
expensive proposition to have his assistance. $1,000 lawyer fee.
$350 to the FTC to research the registry for the similarity of
other marks. $245 fee to register.
Has anyone successfully registered their trademark (hallmark)
without the assistance of a lawyer? Am considering moving ahead
without doing the $350 search - going under the assumption that
my mark - as it is stylized - will be different enough from any
other cw’s out there. If my application is rejected, it will be
less money spent than doing the search first!
Thank you again
