Trademark + Copyright

Not sure how a trademark or copyright can help your business?

Think about your brand, your online content, and your digital products.

You’ve likely spent countless dollars and hours weaving the story of the work you do into your business and product names, logo, tagline or slogan, and products.

You’ve used your brand to build trust with your client base. They see your name and logo and they instantly want to buy from you, because of the hard work you’ve put into building a strong identity. 

The AWB Firm will help you put the right legal protections in place so you can sleep at night, knowing your brand, content, and digital products (and all the hours, dollars, blood, sweat, and tears that have gone into building them) are 100% yours.

Don’t let someone else rip off your hard work.

When I came to Autumn for help with copyrights for my surface pattern collection, I felt totally clueless about the legal needs for my business. I had no idea where to begin. After devouring ALL the episodes of the Legal Road Map® podcast, I knew Autumn was the right attorney to help me accomplish the goal of protecting my work. I highly recommend the AWB Firm!

Autumn really ‘gets’ entrepreneurs. I came to the AWB Firm for help with a trademark registration. I had been putting this project off because it felt a bit tedious, but Autumn and her team took care of everything and did a great job. Autumn is the opposite of a stuffy, old boring lawyer – friendly, real, personable, human. I highly recommend working with her and her team.

I knew I wanted to be protected legally but I didn’t even know what I needed an attorney to help me with. Autumn is so approachable, it’s easy to ask her questions because she doesn’t respond with legalese that I don’t understand.  She asks questions that make you think and ultimately lead to better legal protection. Since starting to work with Autumn, I have a rock-solid client agreement and now have 3 trademarks approved. I love that I feel like I have an attorney in my back pocket. If I ever have a question or a new legal shift, I can call on Autumn to give me answers! Autumn is a SOLID attorney, who truly “gets” the online business industry with its quirks. She’s flexible and super knowledgeable. I LOVE working with her!

Reina Pomeroy

Autumn made the entire trademark process super easy and no fuss for me. She is professional, down to earth, and makes the “legal stuff” easy to absorb. Autumn and her team were quick to answer my questions, which I really appreciate. I would recommend Autumn to anyone looking for legal advice on trademarks or protecting their intellectual property.

Tonya Rineer

I came to the AWB Firm because another company tried to register my business name and sent me a cease and desist letter. Autumn successfully obtained a trademark for my company name, which meant I was able to avoid having to change my business name and starting over with building brand trust. Autumn is a well rounded small business attorney that can not only assist with many legal issues but can also advise proactive steps that can help protect your business.

Chris Carlino

I came to the AWB Firm not knowing much about trademarks other than that I needed to register mine. Autumn and her team explained things to me step-by-step as they moved through the trademark registration process, only bringing me in when I absolutely needed to be included. The AWB Firm is reliable, consistent, and easy to work with, and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a trademark for their business.

Kelsey Vasileff

As a full-time emergency physician, I came to the AWB Firm feeling totally clueless about how to protect my rights in several products I had developed. After working with Autumn and her team, I now feel confident that I know when to involve an attorney and what things I can consider on my own before involving an attorney. Working with the AWB Firm on my contract and trademark issues was easy, cost effective, and a great value. I never once felt dumb but was treated as a valued client. I look forward to continuing to work together in the future!

Jessica Whittle, MD

I have and will continue to recommend Autumn to other creative entrepreneurs. I was able to gain confidence around copyrighting my intellectual property. The copyright gives me more confidence to allow my course to grow and reach more people, while still staying protected. Autumn made me feel like I was the only client she had. She listened really well and understood my situation fully. Just having someone to talk with about it all was very reassuring. Autumn cares, knows what she’s talking about, is extremely professional and instills a great confidence in her clients!

Melissa Camilleri

Since working with Autumn, my business name is now a registered trademark.  I learned so much about trademarks during the whole process, such as what I can and cannot do with a trademark.  Kindness goes a long way in business, and it’s not something everyone leads with, but Autumn is not only kind, but her work was also very efficient, timely, clearly communicated and thorough. Autumn and her staff are so helpful and quick to respond, they provide thorough and knowledgeable answers and never make me feel like my questions are ridiculous (even if they may have been!).  I have already referred another friend and colleague to Autumn’s firm and will continue to do so.

Jessica Principe

Before working with a lawyer, I wasn’t sure I necessarily needed legal support and the cost was a hesitation as well. Working with Autumn, I was pleased by how simple it was to take care of the trademark process. She is very approachable and straightforward. I recommend her to anyone who needs trademark services. The process was seamless, and I have such peace of mind knowing an expert is taking care of it!

Emily Cretella

I knew I needed to pursue a trademark and when I spoke with Autumn, she knew all of the questions to ask moving forward and it reassured me that I needed her help since I didn’t know how to do this on my own. Autumn was so knowledgeable throughout the entire process. I realized that even though it costs more to hire someone versus doing it yourself, at least you know you have done it right. If you are trademarking something, that means it is really important to your business and isn’t something that you can afford to do wrong.

Stacy Tuschl

When I was ready to protect my brand, since I’m a lawyer myself, I knew I wanted to work with an attorney that specializes in trademark law. The AWB Firm helped my business obtain its first trademark and we’re working on a second. Their team works really hard to not only hold clients’ hands as they walk through the legal process, but they also strive to educate clients so that they can make informed decisions. We recommend the AWB Firm all the time!
