About True Lawyer

Over here at True Lawyer, we are experienced trademark and copyright attorneys. We are The Ownership Firm™. We run business with one thought in our minds: “Ownership is the foundation to building a sustainable legacy. You need to protect your business like a billion dollar brand.”
That’s because we know that all big brands start “small” (At least that’s what the business owners believe.) But we’ve seen “small” businesses grow into crazy big companies, and we know the importance of protecting that enterprise straight from the beginning.
When we started our business, we focused on the real estate side of things. We saw our calling to help people build their wealth through buying and selling homes. Quickly, our client base grew into those with businesses with growth potential. That’s when we became dedicated to adding our trademark and copyright legal services and offer our expertise to generate wealth and increase ownership for business owners, too.

OUR GOAL:

To provide our clients with stress-free legal services (no crazy legalese speak over here). We know dealing with law can be overwhelming, so we’d like to take that frustration off your plate. We offer flat rate predictable fees allowing you the ability to plan ahead your trademark and copyright legal cost. You have other things to focus on instead, like where you’re going to take your business after trademarking your genius or the next property you’re going to add to your real estate portfolio.

Trade Secrets 

A trademark is a type of intellectual property consisting of a recognizable sign (brand name), design (logo), or expression that identifies a product or service from a particular source and distinguishes it from others. A trademark owner can be an individual, business organization, or any legal entity.

A trademark can be filed at the state, national, or international level depending on your use of the Trademark. Most clients require a national trademark, which protects your trademark across the United States.
