Summary

The Williams Firm, P.A. is a small firm practice with a big firm mindset. My primary goal is to help my clients achieve their business goals in the most efficient manner. I help individuals and companies protect their most valuable asset, their brand. I create and implement strategies that protect your most valuable business assets, your trademarks and copyrights. I work for you and with you to provide experienced guidance throughout the entire registration process and am a skilled trial lawyer who can help you protect your brand through litigation.

While the entire trademark registration process can take a while (approximately 10-12 months), my goal is to conduct your trademark search within 2 business days of you retaining my office and file your application within 7 business days of receiving all the documents and information needed from you.

I charge reasonable flat fees that allow you to be in control of your budget and know your costs up front. I give each matter the attention and focus it deserves, while keeping my client’s goals at the forefront of every brand strategy. My goal is not to be good at everything; it is to be good at everything I do.

Let me know how I can help you achieve your goals today.

Q. is red dog trademark dissolved? looks that way, just confirming. thank you. ragibaut@gmail.com 713-703-7013
A: Just because a mark may be abandoned doesn't mean it's not in use by someone else. You really should consult a trademark attorney to see whether the brand you want to build is available because there is nothing worse than putting money into a brand you can't use.
Q. I have an abandoned trademark I started through LegalZoom is there a way to pickup where things left off?
A: If the time period (usually 6 months) has expired, you will need to start all over again. I would suggest consulting with a trademark attorney so that you have someone who can walk through the process with you from start to finish.
Q. Please explain trademarking, and How it can be used?
A: The USPTO looks at marks in its database and the likelihood of confusion among those marks to determine registration. If the goods and services are not related, you may be able to register the mark. I would suggest having a trademark attorney do a comprehensive search for you so that you can properly protect your brand.
